Town of Fairview News
Town Council Meetings
The Town Council meeting held on November 4, 2020 included a presentation and discussion of a drainage assessment report prepared by a consultant from Huitt-Zollars.  The consultant offered a detailed cost analysis for the construction of a detention pond area to slow down the stormwater velocity in Sloan Creek in order to mitigate significant erosion in certain neighborhoods just east of Oakwood. 
 
Two areas for detention ponds were identified in last month’s drainage meeting.  The first area is an exceptionally large parcel east of HWY 5 and north of Sloan Creek Estates and the second area is located in Oakwood across from Creekside Park on the westside of Parkdale.  It was determined by the consultant that the $7.4M construction cost of the larger detention pond was too costly and would provide a negligible reduction in water velocities.  The proposition of creating drainage detention pond areas within Fairview was concluded with no further action to be taken on the matter.
The next monthly Town Council meeting is on Tuesday, December 1st.  Register online on the Town’s website to view these meetings remotely.
 
Fairview Drainage Meetings
The HOA is monitoring the Town Council discussions on significant drainage and flooding issues throughout Fairview including Oakwood.  Of continuing debate has been how to stop erosion along Sloan Creek.  Homeowner property lines along Sloan Creek run to the middle of the creek making the creek bed private property.  The Town cannot spend public funds to improve private property,  so erosion solutions become the responsibility of the property owner. 
At the December 1st Town Council meeting the Council will discuss scheduling future work sessions related to drainage including possible changes to ordinances to address drainage and flooding controls will happen.   Any new ordinance could add additional requirements and costs to outside construction projects including building sheds, sport courts, or other projects.
 
Internet Updates
Suddenlink outages have been short lived the last 60 or so days, perhaps due to the large number of complaints filed by Fairview residents.  If you experience an outage report the outage to your Internet service provider and then send an email to Assistant Town Manager, Adam Wilbourn at awilbourn@fairviewtexas.org 
It has also been recommended that residents send letters to Altice, the parent company of Suddenlink.  Report your grievances to:
 
Dexter Goei, CEO
Altice USA,
1 Court Square,
West Long Island City Ny 11101
 
Watch the Town’s website for meeting schedules about the Internet service issues.
