City council nears a decision on franchise fees
Any way they look at it, the Farmington City Council has realized they need to turn to residents to help keep the city's roads in shape.
Farmington needs residents to help pay for the seal coating process that maintains city streets. Of that, there seems to be little question.
But the question council members have wrestled with is whether to get that funding through a levy increase of $500,000 or so, or whether it is time to start asking residents to pay franchise fees.
