Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Free tree limb collection continues on Mondays until the last Monday in November. Limbs less than 8 feet in length and less than 10 inches in diameter are accepted. Place tree limbs at curbside by 8 a.m. on Mondays or the following day if Monday falls on a holiday. No landscape waste, tree trunks or tree root balls accepted. The objective of the program is to provide an economical way to dispose of tree clippings and discourage burning.
  • In the April 15 law enforcement report, Deputy James Turner of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office reported to trustees that in an effort to curtail recent disturbances by juveniles during weekend nights at Hickory Point Mall more officers have been present during times of high-foot traffic, especially on weekends. Turner said there had been no issues during the previous weekend, but he acknowledged improved warm weather increases the possibility. Turner also reported that officers have increased their presence in the parks but have had no recent issues.
  • Community and Economic Development Coordinator Nic Duffle’s April 15 report to trustees noted that McDonald’s has applied for a variance to allow for an additional free-standing sign. The restaurant has asked for an additional presale board to complement its existing drive-through signs.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, May 6, 2019, 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.
