Fairmont Residents Attend 'Fairmont 101' Class

Posted: Updated:

More than a dozen Fairmont residents came out Thursday for the first "Fairmont 101" class.

The class educates residents about local government and the history of Fairmont.

It's modeled after a program used in Decatur, Georgia.

Each class highlights a different topic, including budget and finance, public safety, utilities, public works and quality of life.

"Between the two classes we are looking from 30-32 who have signed up. So that's not bad for a first year. hopefully those people go out through programs, clips from the news, more things like channel 19, so next year we will have a full class," said Jay Rogers, Fairmont city manager.

The two courses hold up to 20 people each, and will be held over the next eight months.
