Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • As an indicator of spring, batting cages are up and ready in the park, according to Public Works Director Larry Coloni.
  • Sport Clips Decatur, 107 E. Highland Dr. in Forsyth, opened for business on March 1. The phone number is 872-6200. For more information, go to www.sportclips.com. Penn Station, located next door, had a ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 15.
  • In the law enforcement report to trustees on March 7, Lt. Jamie Belcher of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office introduced two deputies who have been assigned to the village. Since Feb. 1, Deputy Shane Wendell has been working the 4 p.m.-midnight shift, and Deputy Travis Wolfe has been on the 6 p.m.-2 a.m. shift. Belcher said bike patrols will begin soon as spring weather arrives. He also reported that on Saturday, March 5, a number of kids congregated near the park, with about 15 of them running off when police stopped to investigate. Rumors on social media were buzzing about a possible fight between two groups: Maroa-Forsyth, Mount Zion and Decatur football players were allegedly going to fight football players from Danville. Deputies spoke to the remaining 10 kids about the dangers of social media disputes. “There were no Danville kids present,” Belcher said. “They were probably in Danville laughing.”
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, March 21, 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.
