Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Village resident Bill Hickman spoke during the public comment portion of the June 5 meeting to express his concerns to trustees about Forsyth Park’s tennis courts. Hickman emphasized the park’s amenities “are wonderful,” but he said bicycles and roller blades “really tear up” the recently refurbished tennis courts.
  • Community and Economic Development Coordinator Andrew Zupkoff’s June 5 report to trustees noted that he recently hosted a franchise workshop. He reported that he continues to provide marketing materials to supermarkets and other retailers using the Village’s Retail Tenant Online Directory.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni reported to trustees on June 5 that his crews have been busy mowing and spraying turf weeds as weather permits. Picking up tree limbs takes two days per week, and prepping ball diamonds is currently a daily task. Crews have been preparing flower beds and planting flowers at the park, Village Hall and the library.
  • Tyler Ray, a 2017 graduate of Maroa-Forsyth High School, was awarded a Community Foundation of Macon County scholarship at an award ceremony held at the high school on May 17. Ray was awarded the Decatur Foundry Scholarship. The Community Foundation of Macon County administers over 72 scholarship funds that are available to graduates of Macon County high schools.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, June 19, 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.
