Plan Commission members had reviewed the requests from Forsyth Antique Mall and Eyemart Express on Dec. 30. Also tabled was a request from the Public Works Department to replace one of the Village’s leaf vacuum units until further product pricing is available. A second department request received approval with the replacement of the Village’s mosquito fogger at a price not to exceed $12,000.
