Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the law enforcement report to trustees on Aug. 15, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Shane Wendell reported that a burglary at a local retail store netted thieves about $23,000 worth of designer jeans. Wendell said perpetrators were in and out of the store quickly after breaking a window to gain entry. According to multiple media reports, there was another similar incident about an hour later in Normal. Both incidents occurred at Von Maur stores in the early morning hours of Aug. 13. The first at the Von Maur at Hickory Point Mall at about 3 a.m., and then the Von Maur store at College Hills in Normal was targeted, where jeans were taken that were valued at about the same amount.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni has been on mosquito patrol since the spring starting with larvicide treatment of village catch basins to prevent breeding areas. Residents do their part by eliminating standing water on their property. Coloni said he will continue to fog on an as-needed basis when residents complain about mosquitoes in their neighborhoods and when weather conditions are favorable for fogging to be effective. Coloni said the season has been pretty successful because of the early larvicide applications.
  • Due to the Labor Day holiday, the next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 6, 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.
