Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the law enforcement report to trustees on March 21, Deputy Drake Lambdin of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office reported that there had been some recent postings on social media about a female driver being stopped between Maroa and Forsyth by someone other than a police officer. Lambdin reported that it was in fact a Maroa police officer who made the traffic stop. Lambdin also reported that recent damage to a section of perimeter fencing at Hickory Point Golf Course on Oakland Avenue was the result of a hit and run; he said the Decatur Police Department took the report in that incident.
  • Bob Rasho, a former trustee, spoke to trustees on March 21 about recurring flooding problems on Phillips Circle. Rasho urged trustees not to throw “good money after bad” by spending money on more engineering studies. Rasho said the village should pressure the Macon County Board for a cost-sharing solution.
  • Penn Station East Coast Subs and its next-door neighbor Sport Clips Decatur, located in the new development at 107 E. Highland Dr. in Forsyth, are both now open for business. Steve Zhao, president of Neil Plaza, a Champaign-based development business, is negotiating with two other potential tenants for the property’s remaining two retail spaces.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, April 4, 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.
