2017 Fayetteville Firemen’s Festival set

By Martha B. Jacob –

Members of the Fayetteville Village Council met for their first meeting of 1017 on Jan. 11 and wasted no time in discussing this years scheduled “Fayetteville Firemen’s Festival” set for June 16, 17 and 18.
“The festival won’t really be a three day event,” said Fayetteville Mayor Randy Carson, “On Friday it will begin at 6 p.m. until 11 p.m., then all day Saturday, and on Sunday I believe it’s from 2 to 6 p.m. so I think people will like that and there will be something for everyone.
“We’re excited about this years’s Firemen’s Festival, because it’s sort of our lead into Fayetteville’s 2018 sesquicentennial.”
In other business at the meeting, street committee chair Jim McMullen told council that all the fallen limbs had been removed from all the streets after strong winds.
Parks committee chair Edward Coleman briefly discussed a chain needed at the park where the library entrance is. It was suggested that the chain be painted orange for easy visibility. However, Coleman told council that he wasn’t sure if the village to do it or the library should do it. He will report back to council at the next meeting.
Joe Huber, chair for the safety committee, reported to council that he felt an old pick-up truck, loaded   down with trash and old mattresses needed to be moved.
Fayetteville Police Chief Ed Schmid stated that he had been to the truck owner’s house several times but the person doesn’t come to the door. According to village administrator Bob Campbell, there is no water going to the home and the Brown County Health Department will be notified and the vehicle will receive a parking ticket.
Huber also told council that Jim Brady, superintendent of Fayetteville-Perry School District had donated  a small statue of a soldier to the  Fayetteville VFW.  Huber then contacted the Perry Township Trustees and offered the statue to them. The trustees plan on placing the statue in front of the township building.
Clerk for the village, Barb Kiley told council that the finances for the village are about the same and things look good through February.
Later in the meeting Campbell told council that the water department the number of delinquent accounts was better than they were last year.
“January seems to be a problem every year,” Campbell said, “I believe the 10 percent penalty will help keep the delinquents down.”
Campbell said that usage of water was up from last year partially due to leaks. He said he plans on having the lines checked in the spring because some of the lines are over 50 years old.
Mayor Carson told council about a recent $3,000 donation to the police department which will go towards new bullet proof vests.
