Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Trustee Bob Gruenewald pointed out to trustees at the board meeting on Dec. 21 that village sales tax receipts had trended up only slightly but in the “right direction.” Gruenewald added that this trend has occurred 11 of the last 12 months.
  • The regular meeting of the board of trustees, scheduled for Monday, Jan. 4, 2016 was cancelled as was the library commission meeting scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 13.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni reported to trustees that he attended a water operators’ conference in Champaign on Dec. 10, where Environmental Protection Agency representatives discussed changes that affect how water plants are operated. He learned that fluoride levels have been reduced, which will save the village hundreds of dollars but will save Chicago more than $1 million. Coloni also reported that a critical pump check valve that had failed at the water plant was removed and rebuilt in-house for a savings to the village.
  • Coloni reported that on Dec. 6 the Buckeye Pipeline Company conducted a pressure test of its pipeline that runs about 65 miles from Forsyth to Hillsboro. The plan called for filling the line with water and a dye, raising the pressure and then checking the line for leaks using air and ground staff.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 18, 2016 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.
