New rules coming for home upkeep in Farmington


A new property maintenance code is one step closer to being approved after Monday’s Farmington City Council meeting.

The proposed Property Maintenance Code is designed to help city officials regulate the condition of homes in the community. More specifically, it will help to identify houses that have exteriors in poor condition. It also gives the city a structured means of getting those homes cleaned up.
