Government Update 2020-09-28

Hello, everyone! Time for another Fayette Government Update! We’ll be jumping into October with Education and city/town council meetings! I’m curious about this “Inman Property Consideration” from the school board. And if you’re in the market for surplus Fords, Fayetteville is putting them on the auction block! Early voting is two weeks away!
