Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • On June 19, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Shane Beck reported to trustees that pursuit of a suspect on June 13 was abandoned on Weaver Road when law enforcement determined the threat to public safety was too great. The incident began at Bergner’s at Hickory Point Mall when a male, who is a parolee, was harassing some female employees. The suspect eluded officers through an employee door before fleeing in an older white Cadillac with law enforcement giving chase. Beck said the suspect is known due to his criminal background. In the meantime, deputies are monitoring Bergner’s, especially as employees leave the parking lot at night.
  • The Village’s longtime engineering firm, Bainbridge, Gee, Milanski and Associates, has merged with Chastain & Associates. Chastain’s Mary Cave said the merger is beneficial to both firms and should provide better service to clients, including the Village. Cave added that all BGM employees are being retained. Trustee Bob Gruenewald commented that the Village’s engineering firm had not been reviewed for more than 20 years and now might be time to do so. Trustees David Wendt and Kerry Denison, along with Village Administrator David Strohl, supported the idea of transferring current contracts to Chastain so as to not slow any 2017 capital projects.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, July 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.
