Council members split over parks survey


Maybe if a couple of campground were in the proposals, things might be a little easier. As it is stands right now, there two sets of opinions when it comes to parks facility needs in Farmington, and it's all a matter of which camp is bigger.

That's why the Farmington City Council voted 3-2 Monday to spend $10,900 for a community survey to find out how residents feel about a possible bond referendum in November to pay for parks and recreation facilities and upgrade.
