Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Here’s a pretty cool statistic posted to the Village’s Twitter feed on March 1: There is over $17 million spent on food and beverage in Forsyth each year.
  • In the March 18 law enforcement report, Sgt. Ron Atkins of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office told trustees that there had been recent incidents during weekend nights at Hickory Point Mall involving juveniles. Atkins believed some of the activity, particularly a group of about 15 juveniles, was driven by social media, adding that many of the juveniles’ parents did not know their kids were at the mall. On another topic, Atkins noted that Deputy James Turner, at Village Administrator David Strohl’s request, has been doing a good job of making his presence known near the middle school and has been making related traffic stops. Mayor Marilyn Johnson asked deputies to be aware of recent reports of loud music being played in Forsyth Park near the Veterans Memorial.
  • Community and Economic Development Coordinator Nic Duffle’s March 18 report to trustees noted that he recently spoke with the corporate team at O’Charley’s about their vacant building. Duffle wrote that there is continued interest in the building and that the people at O’Charley’s prefer to sell the property rather than lease it.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, April 1, 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.
