Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • This village recently asked for volunteers to join a new committee that was forming to gauge interest and solicit input from residents regarding a Community Center. Other duties of the committee include evaluating amenities and locations, providing input on design, addressing construction and operating costs and making recommendations to trustees. Volunteers chosen to serve on the committee include: Shawna Bohlmann, Jason Bozarth, Kerry Denison, Chris Downey, Wayne Kent, Benny Lourash and Kaushik Sojitra. Trustee-members are Bob Gruenewald and David Wendt. The motion to approve the committee members was made by Trustee Bob Gruenewald and seconded by Trustee Kerstin Trachtenberg. Votes were 3-2 in favor; the motion carried. Dissenting votes came from Trustees Steve Hubbard and Jim Peck.
  • In the law enforcement report on July 18, Deputy Drake Lambdin reported that there have been extra patrols to aid in the safety of Pokemon Go players by keeping them out of the street, for example. Lambdin added that there have been no issues related to the popular game. Trustees, led by Jim Peck, offered their thanks to Lambdin and his fellow officers for the job they do protecting the village. “I want to thank you from my family personally,” Peck said. Trustee David Wendt told Lambdin to stay safe.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 1, 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.
