FARMINGTON — The Farmington City Council will have a closed executive session at the end of its meeting on Tuesday to discuss the Farmington Electric Utility System's solar project, the riparian habitat improvement at the Rock Garden in Berg Park and a transportation hub for Red Apple Transit.

The council will meet at 6 p.m Tuesday at Farmington City Hall, 800 N. Municipal Drive.

The electric utility sent out a request for proposals for developing a small-scale community solar garden. Seven firms responded to the request, and the council could vote Tuesday after the closed session to begin negotiations.

The riparian habitat improvement at the Rock Garden would involve excavation and filling of the river channel, constructing rock habitat and erosion control, removing invasive Russian olive trees and planting native species.

The city is also looking at creating a transportation hub for Red Apple Transit.

The Farmington Municipal School District School Board will meet at 5:15 p.m. Thursday. The board will consider allocating $1.7 million in district funds to make renovations at Country Club Elementary, according to the agenda.
