If you have a concern regarding a neighbor. We ask that you first approach your neighbor and attempt a peaceful resolution. If you wish to voice your comments or concerns to the City Council, here is the procedure:
Please briefly communicate your comment or concern in writing to the Mayor, with your name, phone number and address. It is necessary for you to do this at least 48 hours in advance of the City Council meeting, in order for you to be included on the Agenda. The Mayor will advise you on whether this is a “Metro” matter or if it will be brought before the City Council. The City Council meets the 4th Tuesday of each month the Farmington Visitor’s Center at 6:30 PM.
At the beginning of each meeting, each Resident is invited to introduce himself/herself, stating his/her name and address. You will be limited to no more than 5 minutes to voice your concern. The council members and the mayor may or may not discuss options and solutions.
Please note that if your issue is not listed on the Agenda, you will not be allowed to speak at the meeting.
