FAIRBURY – Dates have been set for the 2017 Fairbury Citywide Cleanup. The city council voted Tuesday night to hold the annual event the week of April 24 to 28.
The annual event provides free curbside pickup for residents to dispose of unwanted larger items such as furniture, appliances, rugs, tires and building materials. The business cleanup will be held May 1 to 5.
Also during Tuesday night’s meeting the council appointed members of a steering committee to move forward with the construction of a new swimming pool after residents voted in February to approve a bond issue up to $5 million to replace the existing pool.
Councilman Brad Kuzelka will chair the committee, which also includes councilman Tim Polson and community members Jake Friesen, Sepencer Brown and Jaime Lambert-McDaniel.
The council also approved an agreement with Ameritas to refinance the city’s debt for the filtration plant at Crystal Springs. City Administrator Collin Bielser said refinancing would increase the city’s annual payment, but save money on interest by paying off the debt faster.

The council voted unanimously in favor of the agreement.
