Fairfield supervisors discuss shortfall
Fairfield Township supervisors approved a motion at the September meeting to use money from the general fund to cover any possible shortfall in the state's aid to municipalities for the Minimal Municipal Obligation, the township's retirement pension plan, for 2013. President Vaughn Tantlinger proposed the possibility of extending the water line across Route 271 so residents living along Ross Mountain Park Road could be included.
Tantlinger said he discussed the extension with The Engineering, Architecture and Design Services Engineer Ben Faas and was told the extension would be addressed next year.
In other business:
• Supervisors approved a $50 donation to Cub Scout Pack 1123.
• A plan was approved for a sewage module for the Samuel and Yvette Saxton Jr. subdivision.
