FARMINGTON -- The recent growth in the city’s youth basketball program has forced city officials to scramble for facilities and amenities to meet the need.

The city’s Junior Jazz program has expanded and forced the city to begin using space at elementary schools for games, according to Neil Miller, manager of parks and recreation.

As a result, city officials have purchased two multi sport indoor scoreboards for $1,196 to deal with the growth. Purchase of the scoreboards was approved by the city council during a recent meeting as part of the consent calendar.

Miller said the scoreboards will be used for city basketball and volleyball programs.
