Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni and his staff have painted the Village’s pocket park signs. Coloni reported the he is also getting a quote to install playground equipment behind Forsyth Public Library, which hasn’t been updated in over 25 years.
  • Andrew Zupkoff, the Village’s community and economic development coordinator, noted in his report to trustees for the August 20 meeting that he recently attended the International Council of Shopping Centers Chicagoland Retail Connection in Schaumburg. The program featured about 200 retail tenants, including “a few dozen retailers” looking for sites downstate in markets like ours. Zupkoff plans to contact those retailers and forward their contact info to Forsyth commercial property owners and landlords.
  • An open seat on the Village’s Tree Board was recently filled by resident John Kottke, 443 Tyrone Drive. The vacancy was due to a member relocating out of the area. Kottke responded to an announcement in the Village Vision newsletter.
  • Reminder: Curbside tree limb collection continues until the last Monday in November. Tree limbs no longer than 8 feet and no greater than 10 inches in diameter must be at the curb by 8 a.m. on Mondays. Landscape waste, tree trunks and tree root balls are not acceptable.
  • Due to the Labor Day holiday, the next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Tuesday, September 4, 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.
