Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the law enforcement report on November 7, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Drake Lambdin told trustees that October was a busy month. The most serious incident was related to vehicle break-ins on Jacobs Way, where a firearm was stolen from an unlocked vehicle; no arrests have been made. Von Maur had two thefts of over $5,000 worth of clothing; there have been no arrests. A Decatur man was arrested in connection with a series of thefts at Kohl’s totaling about $1,400; the suspect was supporting a drug habit. Counterfeiters have been passing bad bills to area businesses; there are no suspects.
  • Trustees and Village Administrator David Strohl have had discussions at the last two meetings regarding the 2017 Operating and Capital Budget. The budget has not been finalized yet as Strohl has produced two drafts and made adjustments at the request of the Board. He will have more changes incorporated into a fresh draft to be presented at the next meeting.
  • Resolution No. 8-2016, a resolution approving an intergovernmental agreement between the Village and the Hickory Point Fire Protection District, was renewed for a 20-year term. Strohl recommended passage writing in a memo that the agreement has “worked to the benefit of both parties and the community.”
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, November 21, 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.
