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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
