In other business, David Hourigan, president of the Mountaintop Hose Company No. 1, reported that the fire department responded to 44 calls in December and that 2017 was its busiest year to date. Santa Claus, who toured Fairview Township neighborhoods aboard a fire truck in mid-December was well received, he added.

The Fairview Police answered 275 calls in December, reported Orloski, including 22 calls for suspicious persons, vehicles, or circumstances, three fights, and one of the following counts: theft, narcotics possession, and criminal mischief. Police also issued 12 traffic citations and 28 warnings. Orloski continued that police assisted with 11 motor-vehicle accidents, as well as helped EMS workers 10 times, the fire department four times, and other agencies four times. Officers also attended training in various areas.

Township road crews were out for hours on Christmas day plowing the streets, reported Roadmaster Russ Marhold. No major accidents were reported from that snowfall and crews spent the rest of the month maintaining equipment, among other tasks.

In December, the township brought in $1,904 in zoning permits and fees, stated Zoning Officer John Doddo. One stop work order was issued and two notices of violation were also resolved last month. Outstanding issues still remain with a partially-constructed home on Dale Drive, he said, and no permits will be issued until those problems are handled.
