Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the September 5 law enforcement report, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Shane Beck reported that there was a recent event at a house on Elwood Street where a man, who had been forcibly evicted, spray-painted graffiti on the house. The suspect was arrested, Beck said, after an eyewitness to the crime came forward. The house also had holes in the walls, and the water was left running. Beck said ServiceMaster was in the process of covering up the graffiti.
  • Everyone is invited to cheer on members of the Hickory Point Fire Protection District and the Macon County Sheriff’s Office as they square off in a rib-eating contest at 11 a.m. on September 16 at Texas Roadhouse. Proceeds from this fun event, known as the Rib Eating Challenge for a Cause, go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Special Olympics. Macon County Corrections Division and the Department of Corrections Decatur Prison will also participate.
  • Andrew Zupkoff, community and economic development director, noted in his report to trustees that he’s preparing marketing materials for the International Council of Shopping Centers Chicago Deal Making event at the end of the month. Per the Village’s strategic plan, Zupkoff plans to meet with reps from grocery stores and other targeted retail businesses.
