FARMINGTON, N.M.- The City of Farmington is replacing some stop lights with stop signs.

"Just the electrical and the operation of maintenance on an unneeded traffic signal is around $12,000 a year, so you're saving the taxpayers' money for things that aren't needed and really that's our responsibility to try to be an efficient organization," said David Sypher, Community Works Director for the City of Farmington.

The plan is to install stop signs at six intersection.

"We check to see if the signals are warranted or not and there are lists of nine warrants that the manual provides and so that's all we do," Sypher said.
