Several Fairfield citizens – including former mayor Roy Hill – voiced their opinions at Tuesday night’s council meeting regarding the possibility of a $4 million bond. All four speakers are concerned about the bond amount, as well as payments and the length of the bond. Don Thornton compared the bond to a suffocating person and asked the city to reconsider before “burying Fairfield in debt.”

“Is it morally or ethically right for Fairfield citizens to be strapped with that kind of debt?” asked Barry Capps, owner of Capps True Value. “In my opinion, the council should walk away from this bond.”
