City's franchise fee discussion continues

Email

The idea of implementing franchise fees to pay for the city's annual seal coating projects has been put on the back burner, but Farmington City Council members haven't turned off the heat.

Council members have considered the concept of franchise fees since it was introduced last September. The fees would be added to the gas and electric company bills that residents pay monthly. Those extra fees would be forwarded to the city in the form of additional revenue.
