Welcome to Fairview!
MAYOR'S BLOG: January 5, 2017
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Thanks to all our Fairview citizens who completed the random 2016 Fairview Citizens’ Survey. Results are tabulated and posted on the town website under “About Fairview.”
63% of those who responded to the survey said they would like for the town to include them on an email listing for important notices and communications. To date, only one person has asked to be included on this email listing. If you would like to be included, please send your email address to Town Clerk Teresa Gregorius. Her email address is: email@example.com
The Town Park is almost complete. If weather permits, the park should be open within the next several weeks. Recent rain has put the park slightly behind schedule. A grand opening of the park is being planned for Spring 2017. The date for the grand opening will be announced on the town website and the town Facebook page.
Several citizens have expressed concern about the use of compression brakes (Jake brakes) within the town. Town Council has discussed on several occasions. Council is still looking at possible options. The noise created by compression brakes is addressed within the town Noise Ordinance. The following is exempted from the Noise Ordinance: “Noise resulting from motor vehicles in proper operating condition and properly equipped with the manufacturers’ standard mufflers and noise-reducing equipment.” The noise from compression brakes comes from aftermarket mufflers (or straight pipes) and WOULD be covered under the town Noise Ordinance. The difficulty lies in enforcement. More to come on this as we move forward.
