Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • On April 7, Public Works Director Larry Coloni attended a Tree City USA luncheon in Urbana to accept the village’s Tree City USA award. On April 29, to mark Arbor Day, Coloni handed out Norway Spruce trees to over 300 first- and second-graders at Warrensburg-Latham, Decatur Christian School and Maroa-Forsyth schools. This makes 20 years that the village has been honored with the Tree City USA designation.
  • In the law enforcement report to trustees on May 2, Sgt. Ron Atkins reported that bad weather and staffing issues have delayed the return of bike patrols in the village, but he thought they would resume any day now.
  • If you’re a fan of the Imagine That Band, be sure to come see them play on Saturday night of Family Fest on June 18. The band will play for three hours beginning at around 6 p.m. Stay tuned for more Family Fest entertainment updates in upcoming issues of Village Vision.
  • Free tree limb collection continues on Mondays until the last Monday in November. Limbs less than 8 feet in length and less than 10 inches in diameter are accepted. Place tree limbs at curbside by 8 a.m. on Mondays. No landscape waste, tree trunks or tree root balls are accepted.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, May 16, 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.
