Funds for the new city hall, located near the pool just above 200 West, have been set aside already, except for an additional $50,000 officials will add to the new budget for 2010-11 to cover potential shortfalls. The city will hold a public hearing on the budget on Tuesday, June 15 at the current city hall.
“Our plan is to have an open house with the Festival Days,” said Farmington City Manager Max Forbush.
That open house will be held on Saturday, July 10. The current city hall will be closed July 15 and 16 while officials begin moving office supplies to the new building.
Then a silent auction will be held for the rest of the supplies on Tuesday, July 27 at 7 p.m.
“We have to be out by the end of the month because the school district will be moving in,” said Farmington City Mayor Scott Harbertson.
Because they have to move, whatever supplies are left after the silent auction will be sold for the best price on Wednesday, July 28.
City officials plan to be moved into the new city hall and open by Monday, July 19.
