Fairview council donates funds to summer program, discusses softball complex

FAIRVIEW - The Fairview Town Council approved a $500 donation to Fairview School’s summer program for underprivileged or at-risk students at its monthly meeting Monday night. The program is run at no cost to the students and received a $500 donation from the council last year as well.

The council also heard from Fairview resident Kayla Mauldin about her concerns about school traffic blocking her and her family from getting to their home. The road in question, Mauldin Road, is marked as an exit from the Fairview High School baseball field, and after games, residents on the road are unable to get onto the one-lane road. After looking over a property map, the council determined that the road, for the most part, sits on Fairview High School’s property. The council advised Mauldin to share her concerns with the high school and/or the Cullman County School Board and suggest widening the road.

To close out the meeting, the council discussed avenues for building a softball complex. No official decisions were made but some council members did suggest looking into a grant for the project and any new roads or extensions of roads that could be necessary.

The Fairview Town Council will hold its next meeting on June 4 at 7 at Fairview Town Hall.
