The Fairfax City Council unanimously approved a resolution to offer zero-charge utilities for the GFW Middle School in Fairfax.  That’s IF the school board decides to keep the school open this fall.  A proposal is on the table from the GFW School Board to close the school in Fairfax as part of a Statutory Ooperating debt plan.  City officials said during a public hearing Thursday night there are two options for the council – do nothing and lose the school or offer the no-charge utilities, keep the school open and the city loses some utility revenues.  The no-charge utility offer would not raise utility rates in Fairfax.   The GFW School Board is holding a public hearing Monday in the Gibbon school gym at 6:30 on the proposed Fairfax closing.  Officials encourage people to attend and present “Facts, not emotions.”
