Fairfield Notes

(9/2011) The Fairfield Borough Council voted to participate in a Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources feasibility study. The study will look at recreational resources in the region and consider how they can best be used among the southwest Adams County municipalities and Fairifield Area School District.

The borough’s share in the study cost is $167, though this can change based on how many municipalities vote to participate. The hope is that the study will then become a tool that can be used to obtain grants to help enact the recommendations in the study.

Army Corp of Engineers to look at Middle Creek

Council President Patricia Smith told the council that the Army Corp of Engineers would be visiting the area to study the causes of the Middle Creek flooding problem. They will be looking at properties in the flood plain, impacts from higher up in the mountains and the Fairfield Post Office. The study had been estimated earlier at a cost of $50,000 to the borough, but the Army Corp of Engineers found funding within its own budget to cover the cost of the study.
