Welcome to Fairview!

MAYOR'S BLOG:  October 30, 2017

Thanks to all who came out on a rainy Saturday to make our first Annual Fairview Fall Festival a success!  Although the rain may have kept a lot of folks away, there were many who came out to enjoy the entertainment, food, craft vendors and games.  As I walked around the park during the festival, I heard many positive comments about the festival and the park.  Thanks to the Festival Committee, headed by Councilman Gary Wilfong, for the planning and execution of the first festival in the park.  Stay tuned to the website and the town Facebook page for information on a tree-lighting ceremony that the Festival Committee is planning for December.

2017 Municipal Elections:

Please remember to vote on November 7th.  As citizens, we all have a right and a duty to vote for the candidates of our choice.  There are two council positions open in Fairview.

Veterans Day: 

We celebrate our veterans on November 11th.  Please take time to thank a veteran, as we would not be able to enjoy the freedoms we enjoy in this great country without their sacrifices.

Streets and Roads in Fairview:

I occasionally receive questions about responsibility for street repairs within the town.  Street repair is not a service that the town provides.  All roads are maintained by NCDOT.  The NCDOT has a toll-free number for customer service.  That number is 1-877-368-4968.

The NCDOT also has a website where you can report problems (www.ncdot.gov).

Click on contact in the upper right hand corner of the website and you will be taken to a page where you can report a problem.  They can keep you apprised by email as to the resolution of the problem.

You may have noticed the “Unmuffled Engine Brakes Prohibited” signs on Highways 218 and 601.  Town Council has been dealing with the issue of engine brakes for some time now.  Council has modified the Noise Ordinance to include unmuffled engine brakes within the town.  Prohibiting the USE of engine brakes was felt to be a safety issue, but prohibiting UNMUFFLED engine brakes should help to resolve the noise issue that several citizens have complained about.  The Sheriff’s Office will enforce this ordinance.
