Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In case you missed it, the Feb. 16 edition of the Herald & Review newspaper ran an impressive front-page feature story with several photographs about Forsyth Public Library’s reading programs for children and adults. The main focus of the story was the library’s participation in the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Kudos to Library Director Rachel Miller and Youth Services Librarian Sandi Hayes for their great work!
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni’s report to trustees for the Feb. 16 meeting noted that his department has been busy cleaning up debris along the Forsyth Park side of Stevens Creek, which was a result of flooding in recent weeks. Coloni also reported that the village has received notice that it qualified again for the Tree City USA designation. This will be the 20th year the village has been recognized with this prestigious distinction, which is the community forestry program of the Arbor Day Foundation.
  • In the law enforcement report to the board on Feb. 16, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Drake Lambdin reported that there had been no recent retail thefts, and he said there were no traffic accidents in the village during the recent snowstorm. Lambdin reported that a counterfeit $100 bill was recently spotted by a clerk at the Circle K Gas Station.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, March 7, 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.
