Due to the growing concern with the COVID-19 virus and guidance provided by the New York State Governor, Town Offices will be operating with reduced staff and closed to the general public except by appointment only. We are closely monitoring the situation and will update our protocol as warranted. Please contact the Department that you need to speak with directly by using the numbers listed below: See additional Information below.
DOL is also reminding businesses of its Shared Work Program that can provide an alternative to laying off employees during business downturns by allowing workers to work a reduced work schedule and collect partial unemployment insurance benefits for up to 26 weeks. Instead of cutting staff, you able to reduce the number of hours of all employees or just a certain group: https://www.labor.ny.gov/ui/employerinfo/shared-work-program.shtm
The Farmington Town Board meets at least two times a month.

More information will be provided as we get closer to the meeting date. Please note that the public is discouraged from attending in person and can call in to the meeting.
The Public Works committee meets at 7:30 am and Town Operations committee meets at 9 AM both in the Town Hall on Tuesday of the Town Board meeting day. These meetings are also virtual with the above contact information.
As a reminder sewer and water bills be paid on line.Fees for this recent bill will be credited in the next quarters bill for all of those that pay on line.
Earth moving equipment and excavator equipment have been installing the sewer line followed by the water line installation at the park.
More topsoil will be removed as the weather permits. It is actually better to have colder weather to move the topsoil than warmer weather.
We ask that parents please keep children away from the work area. This project will be completed as the weather and emergency work permits.
