Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Deputy Jennifer Harris of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office reported to trustees on Dec. 21 that retail thefts have been trending upward at Hickory Point Mall during the holiday season, with additional reports of purses and phones stolen. Harris also reported there was a recent burglary involving an unlocked vehicle on Schroll Drive where a small amount of cash was taken.
  • In a follow-up written report for the Dec. 21 board meeting, Public Works Director Larry Coloni noted that temporary repairs have been made to the roof of the water treatment plant. He also reported that the original contractor for the job is local and is actually still in business, contrary to what was previously thought. Coloni has made contact and is waiting for a response.
  • Coloni also made note in the same activity report that leaf and tree limb collection have ended for the season, with tree limb collection resuming in March 2016. Coloni wrote that 10 large maple trees were recently planted in areas picked by Tree Board members. Placement of two of the trees was picked after consulting with disc golfers.
  • Community and Economic Development Coordinator Emily Prather’s report to trustees on Dec. 21 noted that she is continuing to update the village’s website. She recently added a page on the website for the new Forsyth Park Disc Golf Course, which can be found under the “About Forsyth” tab. Included is a course map and a PDF link. Prather also reported that she recently participated in two webinars related to economic development.
