MAYOR'S BLOG:  THE FIRST 100 DAYS

Your new town council has been very active.  Following is a brief rundown for the first quarter of 2016.

Council has adopted an invocation policy for meetings.  Local pastors are invited to pray before meetings.

Rules of Procedure have been adopted for Council meetings.

To keep citizens informed, packets of materials for Council discussion are now posted on the website prior to Council meetings.

The Town’s Ethics Policy has been reviewed with Council members.

We have established a Fairview Festival committee, headed by Councilman Gary Wilfong.  We have been asked by several persons why the town has no “celebration” as virtually all other towns do.  This committee has been charged with planning and expediting a town festival.  If you have ideas for the committee to consider, please contact Councilman Wilfong at:  gwilfong@fairviewnc.gov

Council voted to provide some funding ($4,000) to the Sam F. Keziah American Legion post to help with the American Legion State Tournament this summer.  We have many Legion members residing in Fairview.  Let us never forget the sacrifice that American Legion members have made in serving our great country!

Council appointed Patricia Kindley as “Fairview Historian.”  Patricia is researching the history of Fairview, and will place articles and photos on the town website.  Look for this in the near future.

Refresher training for the Town Planning Board was approved and the training was held in February.  Town Council also attended this training, in order to have a better understanding of the planning function. 

Town Council held their first planning workshop in March.  The workshop was facilitated by N-Focus.   Long and short term goals for the town were discussed.  More to come on these goals as we move forward.

I am honored to be elected to serve as your mayor!   Please feel free to contact me at:  pthomas@fairviewnc.gov
