4/7/2020 City Information and Updates

    • KLOCK’S ISLAND CAMPGROUND CLOSED: The Governor signed a new proclamation yesterday that included closing down campgrounds. Klock’s Island Campground will be closed to campers until further notice. The play equipment is also closed until further notice. The park is still open for walkers, bikers and other recreational activities, however, please practice social distancing and other recommended guidelines to help minimize the spread of COVID-19. The recreational trails will also remain open.
    • FAYETTE COMMUNITY LIBRARY STILL OFFERING CURB-SIDE PICK-UP: The Governor also closed libraries, however, with permission from the Iowa Governor’s office and the State Library of Iowa, we may continue to offer curb-side pick-up for library materials. The Fayette Community Library has many online resources on their newly updated website, fayettelibrary.lib.ia.us. You may also call them at 563-425-3344 to inquire about “curb-side” pick-up materials. Yes, you will still be able to check-out books and movies at this time. The library personnel have a special “disinfection” process they follow for all the materials that are returned to our library.

    • WELCOME JOSHUA BARKER: At last night’s council meeting, the city council hired Joshua Barker as our new Fayette Police Officer. Joshua replaces Sgt. Brian Waid, who recently transitioned to another larger police department.  Joshua is 13-year veteran of the United States Army and started his career in the mental health field. Joshua has been attending Upper Iowa University. He will start working for the City of Fayette this week. Fayette Police Officer Stone Allen has accepted a position with a larger police department. It is always difficult to see great employees move on from Fayette, however, we wish him the best of luck.
    • FAYETTE COUNTY RECYCLING BINS/LANDFILL: The Fayette County Transfer Station/Landfill (10275 Kornhill Road) is closed to the public until further notice. They will only be taking garbage from the garbage trucks and general contractors. The recycling bins located next to the U.S. Post Office will temporarily be removed until further notice to help minimize the spread of COVID-19. You may contact the Fayette County Transfer Station/Landfill at 563-425-3037 if you have any questions.

There is no place like home. And there is no place like Fayette.
