Zion Officers located two additional suspects and took them into custody.  With the assistance of officers from the Decatur Police Department and Macon County Sheriff’s Office a fourth suspect was also apprehended and two firearms were recovered.    

The Mt. Zion Police Department would like to thank Deputies from the Macon County Sheriff’s Office and Officers from the Decatur Police Department for their aid in the apprehension of the suspects, locating the two firearms, and for their assistance in the current ongoing investigation. 

“This has been a collaborative effort from the start,” Chief Skundberg said.”  The help we have gotten from the Sheriff’s Office and Decatur Police Department has been crucial”. 

A total of four suspects are currently being held on charges ranging from Conspiracy to Commit Home Invasion to Unlawful Possession of Firearms by a Felon.

Raking Into Street is a Village Code Violation

Nov 09, 2015

It is a violation of the Village Code of Ordinances to rake leaves or place other landscape waste in the street and doing so can lead to more problems for you and your neighbors. When drainage grates are blocked by landscape waste flooding often occurs. Leaves can also find their way into the stromwater sewer system which can lead to back-ups and because water isn't allowed to drain properly. Residents can be subject to fines between $50 and $500 for each offense and each day on which a violation occurs or continues to shall be considered a separate offense.

The Village of Mt. Zion recommends mulching leaves with a mulching lawn mower or bagging leaves for curbside pick-up from your garbage hauler.  Please contact your garbage hauler for specific yard waste pick-up days in your neighborhood.
