Welcome to Fairview!

We are located in southern Kenton County, primarily along state route 177. The city was incorporated in 1957 to avoid annexation by Covington. Our city’s history is tied to the adjacent railroad, and the name “Fairview” was suggested by one of our residents.

The city of Fairview is zoned agricultural and has a population of under 200. We operate with a mayor/commissioner form of government. The city meeting is held at the city building the second Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm. We meet at the city building (8349 Decoursey Pike) in the heart of Fairview on Route 177.

All are welcome to attend the monthly city meetings! Meetings have resumed with a new start time of 6PM. In keeping with Governor Beshear's guidelines to keep us all safe, masks and social distancing will be required.

The counties of Boone, Kenton, Campbell, and Grant have declared states of emergency in response to the COVID 19 virus. There is a link on the resources page for all you need to know about what should be done in response to this emergency. Check on your neighbors, especially those who may not want to get out, to see if you could run an errand for them or bring them some groceries. As always, implement the following practices:

Tips to prevent illness1

  • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.

Best Way will not be picking up items that are outside or alongside your can. Only items in the provided can will be collected until further notice.
