The City of Farmington could spend $4.8 million on paving projects this year.

AZTEC — The City of Farmington could spend up to nearly $4.8 million on pavement resurfacing and restoration this year.

The City Council approved a contract with Four Corners Materials during its meeting on March 24.

During the meeting, City Manager Rob Mayes said the contract includes approximately 70 projects, however it does not require the city to spend the nearly $4.8 million. Some of those 70 projects could be placed on hold if needed.

He said funding for the resurfacing and restoration comes from bonds and can only be used on road projects.
