Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the August 7 law enforcement report, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Jennifer Harris told trustees that a vehicle reported stolen in Charleston was recovered by second-shift deputies at Buffalo Wild Wings. The vehicle, Harris said, had actually been traded for drugs. Harris also reported that the recent visit to the Decatur area by the Hell’s Lovers Motorcycle Club for its 50th anniversary convention during the weekend of the Decatur Celebration had local law enforcement prepared with extra officers and a SWAT team “staged and ready.” She said the group has previously been monitored by the FBI and ATF. “I’m happy to report there were no incidents with this group,” she said. The motorcycle club rented out the Decatur Conference Center and Hotel and also rented rooms in some Village hotels, Harris said.
  • Two Hotel/Motel Tax funding requests were approved for $5,000 each at the August 7 board meeting. One event, Decatur’s Smokin’ BBQ Festival, is in October at Progress City. This Kansas City BBQ-sanctioned event raises scholarship funds for culinary students at Richland Community College. The second, to be held every Friday and Saturday in October at the old Sears at Hickory Point Mall, is The Scream Haunted House Adventure. It’s a fundraiser for the Decatur Celebration.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, August 21, 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.
