Farmington Community Library, a district library, serves Farmington and Farmington Hills. Eight trustees, four appointed by each city council, oversee library operations. Last year, a wave of resignations followed the replacement of long-time trustee Bruce Lazar, who represented Farmington Hills.

Farmington Hills regular meeting agenda

Farmington Hills City Council also holds a regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, which includes agenda items from a meeting canceled last month due to inclement weather.

Officials will consider a Notice of Intent to issue up to $25 million in Capital Improvement Bonds. Proceeds will fund the renovation of Harrison High School as a community center and may also fund building repairs at the Costick Activities Center.

The amount is based on estimated costs; officials ultimately may spend less, but not more.

The notice starts the clock on a 45-day referendum period, during which residents can bring the bond issue to a vote with petitions signed by at least 10 percent of registered voters.

Council members will also consider several resolutions, board and commission appointments. and a longer term for a joint task force looking at municipal broadband services. Meeting agendas are posted at
