Farmington council to hear Warner Mansion update

Governor Warner Mansion interim director Mary Jeanne Shore will talk to Farmington officials during a 6 p.m. council special meeting about activities at the city-owned museum.

The city contracted with Shore in August; she will remain in the position through December 31.

Also during the 6 p.m. meeting, council members will discuss spending roughly $27,000 to move forward with Farmington Hills in implementing a new software for email and other applications. A vote on the expenditure, an amendment to this year’s budget, is on the agenda for the 7 p.m. regular meeting.

At that time, officials will also consider:

  • Refinancing bonds in order to save $750,000
  • Approving payments for the Shiawassee Road storm sewer repair; construction on Flanders Street, Lilac Street, and Chesley Street; and the Shiawassee streambank stabilization project.
  • Purchasing and installation of 400 water meters for homes and businesses east of Farmington Road to the east city limit, from Freedom Road to Grand River
