The City of Fairfield does not discriminate against any individual with a disability. City publications will be made available upon request in the appropriate format to persons with a disability. If you need an accommodation to attend or participate in this program due to a disability, please contact Cynthia Sutterfield, office assistant at 428.7434 or Lynn Don, office assistant at 428.6290.
