Get coffee with Fairview's City Manager
The new leader at the helm in Fairview City Hall is inviting the community to join him for a cup of coffee and conversation every Tuesday in the month of May.
Philip Morley was unanimously appointed by Fairview City Council earlier this year to fill the position after Nolan Young, who has served the city since 2016, retired. Morley is a 17-year veteran of local government management and is overseeing the 26-employee staff with an annual budget of $30.2 million.
The coffee conversations will be a chance to ask questions about the city of Fairview, make suggestions or raise concerns. If popular, Morley plans on continuing the sessions in future months.
