Farmington Considering UTOPIA Membership

After a presentation given at last week's city council meeting, Farmington may want in on UTOPIA. They're considering joining as a non-pledging city meaning that in exchange for not having to bond for the cost of the project, they'd also be considered a lower priority for construction. If Farmington joins this way, construction would be piecemeal throughout the city, likely starting with new developments where installation would be cheaper. They now join Vineyard in the list of cities considering membership, though Vineyard is considering joining as a pledging city to speed up construction. According to city officials in member cities, they've received a lot of inquiries from cities interested in joining since the ban on new members expired on June 30.
