Codes, Fees, and Policies

City Codes

Have you wondered about the laws governing the city of Farmington? The Farmington City Code is a huge compilation of laws (ordinances), and policies that have been adopted since 1872, when the city was incorporated. City codes provide answers to many questions, such as:

  • How is our city government organized?

  • What are the powers of the Farmington City Council and the Mayor?

  • What types of licenses and permits are required here?

  • What is the definition of nuisance and what does the code say about certain nuisances?

  • How is noise regulated in our city?

  • How many dogs can one own?

The city provides web access to the City Code Book, which is continually updated to reflect current Farmington City Council policies. The most recent ordinances are listed in the "pending" link before they are incorporated into the final copy. Before undertaking any action based on the specific content of this site, check with City Hall at 651-280-6800 for the most current information.
