Farmington Public Safety Department has renewed a partnership with Silver Dairy that will put coupons for a free ice cream cone into the hands of local kids this summer.

Public Safety officers will distribute coupons while on patrol in subdivisions, apartment complexes, and while on foot patrols in Downtown Farmington.

“The program allows for public safety officers and children in the community to have positive interactions,” said Deputy Director Ted Warthman. “We are thankful for our partnership with the Silver Dairy and owner Jason Smith for his willingness to get involved in the community. It’s a great partnership and initiative.”

Silver Dairy, at 32323 Grand River, opens each year in March and usually closes sometime in October.
