February 4, 2020 Town Council Meeting Briefing
During the Citizens Comments Sections of the February 4th Town Council Meeting several citizens presented experiences about flooding on their property and the need for the Town to take action. One citizen suggested that information about the Fire Station 1 project be included on the Town website since the Council recently voted to authorize the Architect prepare construction drawings and the cost of the project has been reduced. One citizen requested more transparency and accountability regarding the Town Manager's contract, such as making it available to the public like Lovejoy ISD does for its Superintendent.
The Council continued public hearings related to zoning change requests which involved issues with drainage and flooding of downstream properties. After lengthy discussions, The Council approved a contract with Huit-Zollars Engineering to conduct a study to evaluate the remaining undeveloped property in Fairview regarding flooding issues and to make recommendations to resolve flooding issues. The Council then postponed the zoning request public hearings until the study is complete in about two months.
The Council approved a Local Option Election for the May 2, 2020 General Election. Lincoln Properties recently collected signatures on a petition for such an election. If the Option is passed by Fairview voters, Lincoln Properties can lease property for a craft brewery for on-site alcoholic beverage consumption without food sales and the brewery would be allowed to sell alcoholic beverages for off-site consumption.
