Live Fit expands with offerings

Live Fit in Fairmont recently absorbed Fairmont CrossFit, broadening the number of fitness opportunities for the community. In the three years Live Fit has been opened, it’s partnered with area school districts and organizations and opened up for their use. It’s always nice to see a local business collaborate like this. We’re excited to see how Live Fit grows in the future.

Council turns down rezone request

This week the Fairmont City Council denied the county’s request to rezone a parcel of land to B3 General Business. The county had intended to build a new public safety center on the land. It’s unfortunate that the council made this move because the county had taken all of the right steps in the process and the Fairmont Planning Commission had done its job and looked at the matter and recommended approval to the council. It seems that some council members let their personal beliefs and wants get in the way of the vote.

District details new streaming service

At the Fairmont School Board meeting, Superintendent Andy Traetow spoke of a new streaming service that will be used to capture school games and events. Previously the board had contracted with Gemini Studios for this service before the contract was canceled. It’s interesting that the new contract with Hudl never went to the board for approval. It’s also been said the new service has some glitches. Hopefully that improves.

Bowlmor expands with arcade

The Bowlmor in Fairmont added a new arcade area. This investment ensures that youth will have more to do in the community, especially in the winter months. A bonus is that it may also draw more people to the community as the nearest comparable arcade is an hour away. Thank you, Bowlmor, for investing in our community and adding a fun activity.
