Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • At the Oct. 5 board meeting, Deputy Jennifer Harris of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office reported on recent automobile break-ins at Hampton Inn and Fairfield Inn and told trustees that a 15-year-old suspect from Tennessee who was staying at one of the hotels when the crimes occurred had been arrested. Harris added that the case was not related to similar recent burglaries in the village. Harris also reported that Deputy Drake Lambdin, a Maroa-Forsyth High School graduate, would be working the night shift in place of Deputy Erik Dowdy, who recently resigned.
  • Mary Scott, whose husband Steve recently spoke to trustees about the village’s new disc golf course, reiterated her husband’s concerns. She said the problem has continued and the hole in question is actually 130 feet from their house. Like her husband, she said she is in favor of the disc golf course, but she does not like the lack of privacy that this particular hole has brought. She said she is asking that one hole be moved. Trustee Bob Gruenewald said part of the problem is that intermediate and beginner players are not playing the hole properly. He wanted to reassure the Scotts that he’s trying to come up with a solution for the problem.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 19, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in Village Hall at 301 S. Route 51 in Forsyth. Board meetings are held the first and third Mondays of the month and are open to the public.
