City council will reach out to Farmington business owners


Farmington mayor Todd Larson is about to learn something new. He's going to learn all about what happens day-to-day in Farmington's business community.

On Thursday, Larson joined Farmington city planner Lee Smick and council member Jason Bartholomay on the first of many visits to Farmington businesses. It's a new initiative that will bring city council and staff into every one of the community's businesses over the next several months.
