Sometimes, the most interesting information that comes out of a city council meeting isn't on the agenda.

Here are a few things we learned during Monday night's Farmington Hills city council meeting: 

1. You may be able to get a credit from Bright House Networks. 

After a month-long blackout of CBS and Showtime programs, Bright House Networks cable customers may be eligible for an adjustment on their bills, depending on their subscription package. City manager Steve Brock said customers should contact the cable company to learn more. 

2. Your signature could go on the city's new water tower.

Brock said the bowl for the 3-million-gallon tower is under construction, and a project under consideration would allow residents to add their names to it in exchange for a donation to a charity. While no one would be able to see the signatures once the bowl is up, a plaque at the base would show who signed. 

3. Avoid the 14 Mile and Haggerty Road intersection. 

Construction is expected to close this area to traffic in about two weeks, but Brock advised motorists to start looking for the closure – and alternate routes – now.
