Help Farmington officials work through budget issues

Farmington officials have set two public meetings to get residents talking about the city’s challenging financial future.

Residents and business owners are encouraged to participate in the meetings, held at 6:30 p.m. on April 26 and May 16 at the Maxfield Education Center, 32789 W. 10 Mile Rd. in Farmington.

In March, city council member Bill Galvin delivered a presentation that showed the city facing consecutive six-figure budget deficits. A budget forecast reviewed in January showed the city’s unrestricted fund balance, a financial cushion, disappearing within five years if nothing changes.

Officials will review the proposed budget during a 7 p.m., April 24 meeting held at City Hall. Budget approval is expected at the May 21 council meeting. Both meetings are open to the public, and time is allowed for public comment.

The budget document is posted on the city’s website.
