Dedication for Farmington's new public safety complex is scheduled for Thursday, July 12, and will be part of the city's annual Farmington Festival Days celebration.
Although the interiors are not complete, the city's police and fire departments have moved into the building at 100 North and 100 East streets.The $450,000 complex is financed through a $250,000 bond issue approved by voters last summer and $200,000 in fire impact fees and other city funds.
The police and fire departments moved into the two-story building June 15, the police department from the old city hall building at 200 East and 300 South streets and the fire department from the rear half of the old tithing building it had shared with the Farmington Lions Club at Main and 100 North streets.
Formal dedication of the new complex is set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 12, with an open house following the ceremony. The public, including former fire department members and city officials, is invited.
The city's fire department, organized in 1907, has been housed in several buildings around the city.
The old city hall on 200 East will be used to house the city shops, building inspection department, and expanded recreation department.
