Week in review

 

Fairfield City Council – There was a public hearing on the town’s proposed 1 percent property tax increase. The council then voted in favor of the increase, which will bring in an additional $846.47 per year. A workshop on the proposed 2013 budget is scheduled for Oct. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Community Center. The town’s new recycling program has been a success and has not generated any complaints. The council also agreed to allow FirstStep Internet to install two small antennas on the town’s water tank to provide broadband internet service to the Fairfield Library.
