Week in review

Valley Fire – Commissioners plan to hold a joint meeting with the civil service sometime in May. The special election in February cost the district $40,000. It would have cost $91,000 if the district had not been on the ballot with several school districts. Commissioners accepted a bid from KME Apparatus and Equipment for a rescue pumper in the amount of $417,000. (Source: Administrative director Debbie Cox)

Fairfield City Council – Council members discussed buying a security camera to deter ongoing vandalism at the bathrooms at the skate park. There has been repeated damage and someone has also smearing feces on the walls. SCOPE volunteers will now lock up the building at night and reopen it every morning. Fliers have been posted around town offering a $50 reward for information on the vandalism. Council members also voted to do mosquito fogging again this year. A start date has not been set and citizens that don’t want their property fogged need to call City Hall. The council also voted to have Lyman Dust Control to use a natural product to keep road dust down this summer. The cost is $1.15 per linear foot and citizens pay the cost themselves but must sign up by calling City Hall. (Source: Town clerk Cheryl Loeffler)
