Fairview Board Sets Onsite Flu Clinic Oct 13

The Fairview Township Board of Supervisors announced at its brief Oct. 4 meeting that an onsite flu clinic will be held at the municipal building. This will provide a convenient way for residents to receive vaccinations, if they desire.

The clinic will be held on Oct. 13, from noon to 5 p. m., in the public meeting room, and will be hosted by Rite Aid Pharmacy. Children aged nine and over can attend and a parent consent form will be provided on site.

The flu shots are not free, but provided to those who have insurance, explained Supervisor Russ Marhold. Those who partake in the vaccinations are asked to bring in their insurance cards and Rite Aid will handle processing the requests.

In other business, the board made a motion to schedule two budget meetings, to prepare the 2017 budget. One was to be held on Oct. 11 and the other on Oct. 17, both at 6 p. m.

The board opened three RFP’s (requests for proposal) for its insurance coverage. The requests ranged from $10,904 to $16,515. Supervisors tabled action until they could review the requests with the township solicitor.

Board members moved to purchase a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, through the co-stars program, at a cost of $40,674, and to have Powells Equipment install plowing hardware to the chassis, at a cost of $32,569.
