The Fairland Board of Trustees and the Fairland Public Works Authority (FPWA) held a special meeting July 26 to approve business related to the Fairland Industrial Park sewer line project. Mayor Mark Goode will be submitting an application to the Grand Gateway Economic Development Association (GGEDA) for financial assistance from the Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP) fund.

To aid commercial growth in the industrial park the FPWA has agreed to split the cost, up to $10,000, of extending the town's sewer line to the site of the new strip mall in the industrial park with the Fairland Economic Development Authority (FEDA); subject to all legal requirements.

During the meeting Gary Utter PE. of Utter and Associates, Inc. met with the board to present a proposal for preparing engineering plans and specifications for the sewer line improvements in the industrial park and performing any engineering work required for grant applications related to possible replacement or improvement to the main water system line and water tower.

Utter and Associates are consulting engineers from Adair with 30 years of experience in the surrounding counties in Oklahoma. The board voted to hire Utter at a cost not to exceed $5,000. Addressing Utter Goode says, "That's what excites me about working with you is your experience in getting these grants."
