FARMINGTON -- The Davis County Legacy Events Center, with corner frontage facing the traffic in and out of the Station Park development, is capitalizing on its location, location, location.
For the first time, the events center will temporarily lease, for $750, a vacant parcel of land on the northeast corner of its property at 151 S. 1100 West in Farmington.
"It is on our property. It's pretty much right on Clark Lane," Legacy Events Center Director of Marketing Mike Moake said of the parcel.
The county commission Tuesday approved a contract with Olympus Fireworks, allowing the business to set up a fireworks stand on unincorporated county property within the events center's boundary.
Commissioner Bret Millburn raised the concern whether the county would run into any additional liability risk as a result of approving the 30-day contract for the stand.
Millburn was assured by County Chief Civil Deputy Attorney Bill McGuire that approving the contract would not expose the county to any additional liabilities.
The Syracuse businessman who owns the stand will operate under the same state restrictions that apply to all fireworks sale businesses, Moake said.
The fireworks stand will be allowed to sell merchandise from June 27 through July 7, and again from July 19 to July 27.
The business owner has other fireworks stands throughout the county, Moake said.
Before the stand opens, its operator will have to obtain a business license from the Farmington City Council.
City Manager Dave Millheim said the business license request has yet to come before the council, where a prerequisite for receiving the license is that the applicant must already have the permission of the property owner to place the stand. He expects the license request will come before the council within the next few weeks.
And Millheim anticipates the council will approve the license.
"I don't see any issue as long as he (the business owner) complies with the codes."
