Fairfield City Council – The council voted to approve a building permit for an addition to a home on Governor Moore Street and discussed a homeowner’s concern about having a sewer mainline cross his property. Lighting upgrades are under way in town-owned buildings. The council voted to approve the 2013 contract with the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office, which is significantly lower than the 2012 cost because the town earned a $9,000 credit due to lower than expected calls for service in 2011. They also voted to approve pay raises for four city employees. The town’s 2013 budget was approved.
