Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Sgt. Michael Hawkins of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office told trustees Dec. 7 that about 40 kids will “Shop With a Sheriff” Dec. 17 at Target.
  • Community and Economic Development Coordinator Emily Prather reported to trustees on Dec. 7 that issues of the Village Vision are available in PDF format online at the village’s website. Look under the News & Events tab at the top and then along the right side of the page.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni reported to trustees at the Dec. 7 board meeting that the roof of the Water Treatment Plant is leaking after only 10 years. Coloni said a representative from Craftmasters Roofing determined the faulty roof was due to poor workmanship. Craftmasters did a temporary repair and bid $30,000 to fix the problem. The original contractor is out of business, but Coloni said the village’s former engineer is researching old files to determine which subcontractor did the original work.
  • Coloni also reported Dec. 7 that an Illinois Environmental Protection Agency inspector recently performed an inspection of the village’s water system, including the village’s wells, towers and plant. Coloni said the EPA’s inspection is done every two or three years, and he expects to receive the evaluation results in upcoming weeks.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 21, 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.
