Village Hall welcomes new staff member

Thursday, January 29, 2015

Emily Prather is the new community and economic development coordinator for the Village of Forsyth. Her duties, which she began back in November, include enforcement of the development ordinance, planning- and zoning-related items, economic development and other items that may arise.

Right after graduating college, Prather says, she went back home to work for the city of Storm Lake, Iowa, as its planning coordinator. During that time, she helped finish an update to the comprehensive plan, an updating of the zoning and subdivision ordinances, in addition to serving as the downtown facade revitalization project manager. She also coordinated Planning and Zoning Commission meetings and Board of Adjustment meetings, and she worked with ArcGIS (a geographic information system) to create various maps for the city.

Here’s an objective she has for her new position here in Forsyth: “Working for the village, I hope to dive into various zoning issues and work on not only business retention but also business recruitment for the village.”

Welcome, Emily! 
