City council to meet this evening

Three public hearings and a special session afterward should comprise most of this evening’s Farmington City Council work session.

The work session, held early each month to line up business for the regular session later in the month, should begin this evening with three public hearings starting at 6:30 p.m. The three hearings will deal with formality private land subdivision matters.

Following the public hearings, a list of seven bills and six resolutions will be reviewed and either rejected or forwarded on to the regular council meeting set for May 16. Among the bills will be a request for an agreement regarding the proposed Farmington Shopping Center to be built at the corner of Maple Street and Maple Valley Drive. The agreement is simply one step in the process of developing the new shopping center. When completed the center should feature a major grocery retailer, specialty shops, and a spacious parking area with manucured green spaces.

Most of the resolutions deal with appointments to various committees and boards with the city, such as Planning and Zoning, Board of Adjustment, Park Advisory Board, and Library Advisory Board.

Following the work session the council will go into a special session to hear an audit presentation given by Greg Shinn, of Thurman, Shinn and Company.

The council will also be asked to vote on three bills – a plat and subdivision approvals for a tract of land near Centene Corporation’s office in the industrial park, an ordinance allowing the mayor to enter into an agreement with the state highway and transportation commission, and the development agreement with Gundaker Commercial Group regarding the Farmington Shopping Center.

The work session will begin immediately following the public hearings, with the special session to following the work meeting.
