FARMINGTON -- Two more people have been approved for membership on a board, which is legally required, but has never met in the 17 years of its existence in this community.

City leaders formally added two members to the Board of Appeals during a recent meeting, voting to appoint Paul Bauer to a four-year term on the board and former city councilman Rick Dutson to a two-year term. The board vacancies came from the recent resignation of Paul Hayward, who was hired as the city’s fire marshal, and the death of Jim Hefner.

The board is set up to hear and decide on appeals of building code interpretations and is required by international building codes.

Mayor Scott Harbertson noted the board has never met, since it was set up 17 years ago.
