Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • In the law enforcement report on June 18, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Byron Ebbert told trustees about a hit-and-run incident on June 15 that wiped out a Forsyth sign on Route 51. Ebbert said the person actually turned themselves in and provided insurance information that should cover replacement of the sign.
  • In Public Works Director Larry Coloni’s June 4 report to trustees, he noted that his department has started the annual fight against mosquitoes. Beginning in the middle of May larvicide was placed in each catch basin in town and in any standing water. Larvicide lasts for 120 days and then is followed by fogging, which is done in response to complaints from residents.
  • On the recommendation of Village Administrator David Strohl, trustees voted last month to not renew a contract that had been in place since 2014 with Everbridge Mass Notification System and will be up for renewal in January 2019 for $2,200.
  • Planning and Zoning Commission has an opening for alternate member; see story on Page 3.
  • On August 3-5, Forsyth Park is the site of the 2018 USA Softball Illinois Men’s Midwest Invitational Fastpitch State Tournament. The Village’s financial commitment to the tournament includes payment of umpires and the tournament director and providing softballs and trophies.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, July 2, 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.
