Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the law enforcement report on February 20, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Byron Ebbert told trustees about recent vehicle burglaries and a stolen car. These incidents occurred in the Smith Street and Jacobs Way areas. The as yet unrecovered stolen car — a 2018 — was unlocked and had the keys left in it. “Just a reminder,” Ebbert said, “I know it’s a small town, but lock your doors. All these cars were unlocked.”
  • In what’s become a nice tradition the last several years, local artists lent their talents to creating valentines in appreciation of veterans. Rachel Miller, Forsyth Public Library director, reported to trustees that 137 valentines were mailed to the Veterans Affairs Illiana Health Care System in Danville shortly before Valentine’s Day. This was part of an annual drop-in craft event held at the library for the sole purpose of creating valentines to bring cheer and gratitude to veterans.
  • The Village always welcomes input from residents who have ideas that would encourage and enhance the sense of community here in Forsyth. The goal is to offer at least one community event per month that is appealing to varying age groups. Please email, call or text Shauna Bohlmann at (217) 433-3922 or with your ideas. Thank you!
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, March 5, 2018, 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.
