Village office closed May 23.

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of long-time municipal employee Gerald Heisz today.

On behalf of staff and all citizens of Forestburg, Village Council extends its deepest sympathies to Gerald's family and many friends.

Out of respect, municipal flags are being lowered in Gerald's honour and as a tribute to his service to out Community.
