Why are there no restrictions on the athletic fields?

City of Farmington employees are stewards of the public infrastructure that tax-paying citizens built. During this time of drought, the City is tasked with balancing water restrictions for private residents and appropriately managing and caring for the millions of dollars worth of infrastructure and landscaping that have been purchased by the taxpayers. City management is walking a fine line of keeping the landscape alive for the economic vitality (and aesthetics) of our community, and the enjoyment of our citizens, verses letting it deteriorate; only to be replaced later with additional taxpayer dollars.
