Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the law enforcement report to trustees on Sept. 19, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Shane Wendell reported that a couple of people had recently attempted to pass counterfeit hundred-dollar bills at Hickory Point Mall. Wendell said there are no suspects, but he said it is probably the work of youths. Trustee Jim Peck mentioned that speeding is becoming a problem on Forsyth Parkway near Village Hall. Peck asked about possibly stopping speeders in that area, adding that he is not interested in seeing deputies write tickets as much as he would like to get the attention of drivers exceeding the speed limit in that area.
  • In his Sept. 19 written report to trustees, Public Works Director Larry Coloni noted that he recently distributed 20 sample bottles to residents for collecting water samples that will be analyzed for lead and copper. Results will be shared with those homeowners, Coloni wrote, and if limits are exceeded a public notice will be issued. He said he did not expect any of the samples to exceed limits.
  • Coloni reported that a resident in Woodland Hills saw a large vehicle from Chicago dumping into a sewer manhole on Lantern Lane. Coloni contacted the Sanitary District of Decatur, which is investigating the incident.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 3, 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.
