Town of Fairview News
Special Council Meeting
At the December 9th Special Town Council meeting the Council discussed possible changes to Town Ordinances regarding erosion control and mitigation along Sloan and Wilson Creeks, stormwater run-off, underground water seepage, and standing water within Fairview.  Following several hours of discussion, the  Town Staff was tasked with drafting new ordinances.  Watch the Town’s website for upcoming meeting agendas addressing the new ordinances.  Any new ordinance could add additional requirements and costs to outside construction projects including building sheds, sport courts, or other projects.
If you live along the Sloan Creek that winds through Oakwood please note that your property line runs to the middle of the creek making the creek bed your private property.  As the property owner you have the responsibility for the erosion control because the Town cannot spend public funds to improve private property.  However, the Town Engineer can provide ideas on how a homeowner can control the erosion.
Senator John Cornyn recently authored a water infrastructure bill that passed 20 Texas priorities. Item 11 of the bill requires the Secretary of the Army to provide a written status update on efforts to address flooding at Wilson Creek and Sloan Creek in Fairview, Texas.  So, the flooding issue will be studied but no federal funds have been appropriated.
 
Internet Outage Reminder
If you experience an Internet outage report the outage to your Internet service provider and then send an email to Assistant Town Manager, Adam Wilbourn at awilbourn@fairviewtexas.org. Watch the Town’s website for meeting schedules about the Internet service issues.
 
FYI…
Our Town Council members are very engaged with citizens and their concerns.  If you have questions, comments  or suggestions on drainage or Internet service do not hesitate to contact them.  Their email addresses are listed in Town Contacts at the end of this newsletter.
