  Exeter Streets are Being Updated
The village of Exeter is in the process of update several of their streets in the downtown area.  There are also plans for new lighting being installed as soon as the light poles and fixtures arrive. 
Sidewalks are also being replaced.  Three feet of the sidewalks are cement and the other part of the sidewalk next to the street is a tan brick-looking surface.  Each sidewalk intersection is now handicapped assessable as well. 
Improving street conditions throughout the Village of Exeter was Goal #4 of the Strategic Plan that started with the first planning meeting in January of 2016 and began implementation with some of the short term goals in 2017 and 2018. 

The FCDC Board Meets in Fairmont
The Fillmore County Development Corporation met in Fairmont for their August meeting.  Board members started by visiting three Fairmont businesses; Red Door Studio, Grant Built Transportation, and CPI-Fairmont.
Amanda and Matt Casey started the photography studio in 2010 and moved it from their home to the main street in Fairmont a couple of years ago.  They do portraits of families, weddings, and senior pictures.  The also do videography.  Amanda said when they set up a senior session it is open for an entire year so if there are special occasions later those pictures can be taken too.
The second stop was Grant Built Transportation.  Chris Grant said he bought his first truck in 2010.  He now as 11 trucks, 13 trailers, and employs 13 plus his wife Aislee who works full-time.
The third stop was CPI (Cooperative Producers Inc.) just west of Fairmont.  Ernesto Montavia, the plant manager, gave an over-view of the operation.  They load 6-7 unit trains a month.  It takes 3 to 4 minutes to load a car and there are around 115 cars per train.  Their load out time is under 10 hours.
Heartland Bank furnished lunch when the board held their business meeting at CPI where they discussed ways to grow the county.

Fairmont Holds Community Strategic Planning Meeting 
The Fairmont Village Board held an open meeting on July 18th and invited the community to give input for a strategic plan for the Village of Fairmont that will carry them through the next ten years. 
A community survey had been sent to all the people with a 68354 zip code to help the JEO consultants, Jeff Ray and Terry Meier, get a feeling for what the people of the Fairmont area are looking for in the future. 
Sixty plus community members attended the meeting.  At the end of the evening the group had selected 10 areas where they wanted improvements and/or growth.  Each of those items were given a time for completion of either short term, 0-3 years, mid-term, 4-7 years, or long term, 8-10 years.  Some of the items also had on-going to the term. 
JEO will prepare the written report and return it to the Village Board and citizens in 6-8 weeks.
