Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • At the February 18 meeting, Trustee David Wendt thanked Forsyth Public Library Director Rachel Miller and all the thoughtful and artistic participants who helped create 88 valentines that were sent to the Veterans Affairs Illiana Health Care System in Danville as part of the Valentines for Vets drop-in craft program.
  • In the law enforcement report at the February 18 meeting, Macon County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Joe Herbert introduced Deputy Megan Burgener, who was recently assigned to help protect the Village. Burgener, who was sworn in as a deputy in September of 2017, is a Decatur native and a graduate of St. Teresa High School.
  • Community and Economic Development Coordinator Nik Duffle’s report prepared for the February 18 meeting noted he will begin a term as treasurer for the Decatur Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. Duffle said he will be required to attend a monthly meeting along with some other minor duties. He wrote that he is “looking forward to helping bring more tourism into the community.”
  • Duffle also reported that there is continuing interest in the vacant O’Charley’s building. The building is 6,900 square feet, which should be large enough to accommodate most restaurants, Duffle noted, describing it as a “relatively updated building with high visibility.”
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, March 4 , 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.
