Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Deputy Drake Lambdin of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office reported to trustees on Nov. 16 that retail thefts have been steady at Hickory Point Mall, but he said they are expected to rise in December. Lambdin also reported that on a recent weekday shift during the week of Nov. 9, there was a disorderly conduct call on Jacobs Way involving a female motorist making comments to a school bus driver.
  • Community and Economic Development Coordinator Emily Prather reported to trustees on Nov. 16 about research she conducted via 60-day trials of subscription-based geographic information systems and economic development data sources. GIS has a range of uses including mapping, while economic data sources are intended for economic development purposes. These programs remain part of FY 2016 budget discussions before trustees decide if they should subscribe. As part of the trial Prather created sample maps and reports. There was no vote.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni’s report to trustees on Nov. 16 made note of a sewer backup due to grease blockage at Red Lobster on Nov. 3. Public Works staff had the equipment to fix the problem, and Coloni indicated that his department will be proactive in the future to try to prevent this type of problem.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 7, 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.
