Deal paying dividends for city, school
Tuesday, June 19, 2018
A collaborative effort between the city of Fairmont and Fairmont Area Schools has resulted in the creation of Whitetail Ridge, a housing development with 20 residential lots south of the soccer fields in Fairmont.
For each lot sold, the school district gets $10,000, which it will put toward vocational programs at the high school.
Fairmont Area has been looking at expanding its vocational programs the past few years due to the great need for skilled workers in the area and across the country.
