FARMINGTON, N.M.- The City of Farmington is hiring.

“We've got a lot of things happening in the City of Farmington, a lot of exciting things, which means a lot of openings. There are a lot of things that we have to fill to make those things happen,” said Tom Swenk, director of human resources for the City of Farmington.

Dozens of positions in the Farmington Fire Department and police department are open. There are also positions open in the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. The city, like many private businesses, is facing staffing shortages, and they will be having a recruiting event on Tuesday at the Farmington Museum.

The need for employees is obvious in some parts of the city. In some parks, residents have voiced concerns about a lack of park restrooms. The city says that’s because they don’t have enough employees to maintain the restrooms.

“We have an expedited application process where we are doing on-site interviews for a couple of positions and really just trying to get the word out there about some of our jobs,” said Swenk.

The recruiting event will be from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. for full and part-time positions. If they don’t fill all the positions, city officials are considering having another recruiting event sometime in the future.
