Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Quick Casey’s update: Coolers, commercial kitchen and drywall in place; parking lot concrete being poured.
  • In the wake of receiving a donated bucket truck from Ameren Illinois in recent weeks, trustees decided at the November 20 meeting what to do with the Village’s old bucket truck. An ordinance was approved that allows the Village to donate the 1999 Ford bucket truck to either Warrensburg or Maroa via a random drawing. Village Attorney Jeff Jurgens said the truck had only nominal value.
  • According to Village Administrator David Strohl, a representative with the Illinois Department of Transportation recently said IDOT is considering the possibility of making changes to the road striping at the intersection of Barnett Avenue and Route 51, due to it being a high-accident area.
  • For several months, trustees, led by Trustee Jim Peck, have been discussing the poor and worsening condition of U.S. Route 51, the Village’s main thoroughfare, and what to do about improving it, particularly at the intersection of County Highway 20 and Route 51. One suggestion was for two trustees to reach out to local legislators to lodge a complaint. Administrator Strohl recommended drafting a resolution from the Board encouraging support of an improvement project, which he thought would “probably have more weight.”
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, December 4, 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.
