Some of the funds leftover from Fairfield’s RAGBRAI event will be used to address the city’s  Emerald Ash Borer infestations. The city’s RAGBRAI committee has dispersed the $17,000 leftover to area non-profits, and gave $6,000 of that to Fairfield’s ash tree project. Member of the committee, Terry Baker, says the money will be used to treat or replace ash trees found around the square and at city parks.
