Senior Center To Buy Van For $4,500

By John Severance

The Socorro County Comm-ission held a rare morning meeting Tuesday so the commissioners could attend a hearing regarding the Sun Zia Transmission Project at the Socorro County Fairgrounds later in the day.
The commission passed a resolution to buy a van for the senior center for $4,500. It also passed resolutions to adopt credit card convenience fees, a collective bargaining agreement with the sheriff’s department and investment of funds with Wells Fargo Bank.
The commission also approved donation requests of $45,000 to the New Mexico State University Extension Office, $3,000 to APAS and $21,000 to the USDA Wildlife Services.
It also approved an agreement with a new financial advisor George K. Baum and also refinanced its General Obliga-tion Bond that would save $75,000 over a five-year period.
“That savings would go straight to the tax payer,” County manager Delilah Walsh said. “It’s not a lot, but it’s still important.”
The commission also scheduled a budget workshop for May 10 at 10 a.m. at the County Annex Building and the meeting is open to the public.
In the manager’s report, Walsh said she and commissioner R.J. Griego attended an informational meeting regarding a possible wind farm in the San Agustin plains. Walsh said the ranchers’ co-op along with project coordinator Sherry Faust will make a presentation to the Land Use Commission at its May meeting.
Walsh also reported that most of the tires have been cleaned up in the northern area of Socorro County and shipped to La Joya where they will be bailed and hauled away.
The next county commission meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. on May 11 at the County Annex Building.
