During the executive session April 24, city council members chose to keep Jeff Looney in his position of city administrator; however, within one week a special meeting was called in which he was fired. According to an affidavit to Mayor Roy Hill and City Attorney Linda Sjogren, Looney was instructed in the April 24 session to write a letter of resignation for his file in case "this ever happened again."

Burl Harrison Tarrant

June 23, 1950

April 23, 2018

Burl Harrison Tarrant, 67, passed away April 23, 2018 at Providence Hospital in Waco. He was born in Ft. Worth June 23, 1950. Who was he...Burl was a devoted son, a faithful brother, a loving husband, father, grandfather, and a loyal friend. Was he a saint? No, but in all things good in heart and in this world, he was. His love for his children and grandchildren filled his life. He was the kindest person; his ability to forgive was only exceeded by his compassion for others. When things went wrong he had an expression: “Oh well, that's life. Let's not agonize over things we can't change.”

The Fairfield Library is celebrating the success of the second Family Game Night on Friday, April 20. Open to all in the community, a Friday evening will be scheduled quarterly – typically on a third Friday – for families to come and play together, bringing their own games from home or playing with those at the library. The Xbox in the teen area is available, as well as the Lego table, checkers and chest in the main area, and tables set up for small group play in the Community Room. We were excited to see two new families being introduced to the library. We may need to formally appoint 6-year-old Harper Nevill, daughter of Sara and Joni Nevill, as our official greeter/hostess because her winning smile and friendly contact definitely won some hearts!
