Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the December 19 law enforcement report, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Drake Lambdin reported a couple of incidents to trustees. During the recent ice storm, Lambdin said, there were a few minor traffic accidents. He said a counterfeit $100 bill was used at the mall, but quick police work led officers to an Ohio man who was located at Wal-Mart. There was a retail theft at Von Maur with stolen items worth several thousand dollars. At this time of gratitude, be sure to say thanks to our police officers for the extra patrols, especially near the mall, that help keep residents and visitors safe.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni’s December 15 report to trustees noted that he and his staff have been busy spreading leaves on the Village’s farm land and prepping trucks and snow removal equipment for the winter season that is now upon us. Coloni said de-icing treatments have begun on Village streets to help in the event of light snows or icy weather. Coloni noted that he has now been employed by the Village for a “quick” 25 years, and he added that he’s ready to keep serving the public for years to come.
  • Due to the observance of the New Year’s Day holiday, the next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Tuesday, January 3, 2017, 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.
