The Farmington City Council recently said a survey should be conducted to learn what kind of community support exists to enforce codes related to a “cleaner city environment.”
“We have been so busy with development over the past few years that a lot of things, like debris in peoples’ yards, are probably in violation of our ordinance,” said City Manager Max Forbush. “These issues can make our city look a little messier.”
The process would address code priorities such as removal of junk cars, yard cleanup, debris in city street rights-of-way, and more.
The survey will be mailed to city residents within the next few months, the council decided.
Development of a new cemetery was also again discussed. Previous discussions with landowners to purchase ground have not panned out.
