The Farmington Town Board met December 2 to prepare their bidding list for many expensive road projects beginning in January 2020. 

Most important on their list of repairs are parts of the following roads: 245, 220, 35, 10, which will be fixed with gravel, spray patching and cement. 

The Board anticipates these repairs at $604,000 but clerk Debbie Swanson explained that, “we have the money to do it.”

Chairman, Dennis Cotter reiterated the grant the board is applying for so they may receive a 90/10 grant from the state, which certifies that Farmington will only be obligated to pay 10 percent of road repair expenses. Cotter declared, “We are hoping to get this grant so that we can fix more roads in Farmington.”

While it is early in the bidding process, Cotter hopes to “get this nailed down in January.”

The board moved to approve three house building permits and meet and sign a new building and electrical inspector, beginning his new position with the town in January 2020.

As the year comes to a close, the board then turned their attention to employee raises. Town employees will be receiving a three percent raise. 

The next Town Board meeting will take place Jan. 6 at 7 p.m.
