The city of Fayette has hired a company to clean and paint the Fayette water tower. The city started draining the water tower on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, so the crews could get started. We are anticipating the process to take approximately a week. During this time, residents may experience low water pressure at times and/or rusty water. Residents may also notice fire hydrants running throughout town. To help with the water pressure, residents should try to avoid running multiple water appliances/water sources at the same time (washing machine, shower, dishwasher, watering the lawn, etc.).

On Wednesday, June 14th at 6PM there will be a City of Fayette Public Forum at the Fayette Elementary School (200 Volga Street). The North Fayette Valley School Board is in the process of gifting the Fayette Elementary School to the City of Fayette. The Fayette City Council would like to know how the residents of Fayette feel about accepting the gift and ideas of what the city could do with the property. Fayette residents are encouraged to attend the Public Forum to ask questions, share their thoughts and provide possible ideas of what could be done with the property. 


The City of Fayette purposes to sell the following described real estate, to-wit:

Lot 2 and the South 16 feet of Lot 3, Block 8, S.H. Robertson’s Addition to Fayette, Fayette County, Iowa.

The property is known locally as 207 Alexander Street, Fayette, Fayette County, Iowa.

The city of Fayette has received an offer to sell its interest in the above-described real estate and such offer shall be contemplated at a public hearing on the proposal to sell that portion of the above-described property. Final approval of the sale will be via resolution following the public hearing.

The public is invited to attend and comment on the proposal at a hearing on the 15th day of May, 2023, at 6:00 P.M. in the Community Room (use back door) at the Fayette Community Library, 104 W. State Street, Fayette, Iowa.
