Faith Elementary sees traffic relief, other news from town meeting

Traffic around Faith Elementary School should be less congested this year, according to Mark Cook, chief of the Granite Quarry and Faith Police Authority.
More than half of Faith Elementary’s students ride to school with their parents, and the school uses only three busses.
The police department worked with the school to create a new pick-up and drop off pattern for car riders that will ease some of the problems that come along with such a high volume of vehicles.
Students in kindergarten through third grade will be dropped off at the cafeteria, while older students will be dropped off at the traditional drop off and pick up location, Cook explained to the Faith Board of Aldermen at their Tuesday business meeting.
The police department also worked with the Rowan-Salisbury School System over the summer to prepare for a critical incident.
In addition, the department is bringing the GREAT program to the school again this year.

In other news, the Board of Aldermen:
• Unanimously approved appointing Tyler Helig as a Local Firefighter Relief Fund Trustee.
• Decided to pay the Centralina Council of Governments on a meeting-by-meeting basis, rather than pay the $90 annual fee per participant per year.
• Approved a $125 expenditure for the University of North Carolina School of Government ethics webinar.
• The State of North Carolina’s Office of State Budget and Management estimates the population of Faith is 813.
• The fire department’s Oyster Roast and Fish Fry is this Saturday.
