Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the law enforcement report to trustees on Sept. 6, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Drake Lambdin reported that detectives continue to investigate what he termed a “smash and grab” burglary at Von Maur in the overnight hours of Aug. 13. Designer jeans valued at $23,000 were taken after a window was broken. A similar incident occurred later that same morning at the Von Maur store in Normal, with more designer jeans taken with about the same value. Lambdin also reported that the day shift now has a new Chevrolet Caprice. He reported that deputies had logged 72 hours of bike patrol in August. Lambdin said that Deputies Travis Wolfe and Shane Wendell recently completed four days of drug-interdiction training.
  • Resident Richard Moore spoke to trustees at the Sept. 6 board meeting to express his gratitude for recent surface repairs. Moore said that he had counted 122 spots that had been improved upon just in the Eagle Ridge Estates subdivision near his home.
  • Village Engineer David Harp of BGM & Associates, Inc., the village’s engineering firm, reported that the firm has moved from its longtime offices on South Taylorville Road on Decatur’s southwest side to a nearby location. BGM is now at 5130 Hickory Point Frontage Road.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 19, 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. 
