Residents Thank Plow Crews
The City appreciates the thank you notes, cards and treats some residents have been providing our snow plow crews. This has been a tough year with many employees going over a month without a day off including Christmas and New Years. This puts a strain on our crews and their families. We are so thankful for the kind cards and notes we have received from grateful residents. While we will not publish all the comments, the following is a thank you we received from a Kaysville resident who works in Farmington which is representative of the thoughts we have received. We know we are not perfect and can do better but we also know we are doing the best we can.
Remember to keep your fire hydrants, mailboxes and address markers clear for emergency personnel. Thank you also to those helping out their neighbors on sidewalks and driveways.
Fire Hydrant Accessibility
The Farmington Fire Department would like to remind you to keep fire hydrants accessible. Every second spent shoveling hydrants during emergencies delays fire suppression and rescue activities. Look for the hydrant nearest your home and make sure that it is accessible. It is in all of our best interests.
- Remove snow and ice
- Clear a wide enough perimeter around the hydrant for firefighters to work (about 3 feet)
- Clear a path from the hydrant to the street
January is often the time when temperatures fluctuate from moderately warm one week to extremely cold the next. This type of weather can lead to frozen or burst pipes, which often result in damage to property and belongings. There are steps homeowners can take to prevent this from happening.
Farmington Canyon Season Closure
Farmington City is cooperating with the Forest Service and locking the City gate above Farmington Pond effective 11/9/16. As we have done for the last several years, our gate is locked once the Forest Service locks the Canyon gate for the winter season which they have now done per the closure order. Only those uses stated in the closure order are allowed through the locked gates. Fines and citations will be issued for any party violating the closure order or caught tampering with the locked gates.
