Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni’s report to trustees for the May 15 meeting noted that his department is in receipt of replacement slides for the main playground in Forsyth Park as the old slide has become a hazard due to a split on its surface. Coloni and crew have been busy prepping ball diamond Nos. 1, 2 and 3 with a top dressing that helps them dry faster after rain events.
  • Kemper CPA Group presented the audit report for FY-2016 at the May 1 meeting. The report, 57 pages in length, was considered a clean audit opinion. The auditor, Luke Sparks, reported that no audit adjustments were made, which he called “a credit to Rhonda and her work,” referring to Village Treasurer Rhonda Stewart. “She did a really good job,” Sparks said. He added that there are no new accounting rules that will have an impact on the Village. His bottom line: “You (the Village) are very financially healthy.”
  • Two members of the library commission just finished up their three-year terms, with one of those members choosing to return. Bernadette Birkholtz will be back while Ken Kirchner has been added as a new member. Library Director Rachel Miller thanked outgoing member, Lakshmi Jyothinagaram, for volunteering her time.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, June 5, 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.
