County Approves Hospital Payment

Mountain Mail Reports

SOCORRO – The Socorro County Commission on Tuesday night approved a payment of $161,779.09 in matching funds to the Socorro General Hospital that was requested.
County manager Delilah Walsh said the hospital would get “an additional $25,000 should more money become available after the SCP reallocation in funds.
“So, if other Counties don’t have enough funds to make the SCP matches, the state funds are reallocated to counties who do. We have enough in the hospital mill levy account to make another match should funds be reallocated and available next week.”
The commission also passed an agreement with Tyler Technologies for software for the assessor’s office.
“The commissioners asked if I had made sure that they had a compatible software module available for the Treasurer’s office too,” Walsh said. “Tyler does have such a module and when funds are available we can look at replacing her software too. Additionally, they have converted three other Counties and two off of the Applogix system so Tyler is very familiar with our current database. Lastly, we can run both software programs congruently for testing.
A number of other resolutions also were passed.
The commission approved SCOPE membership as it was submitted, three cooperative agreements with the state department of transportation were made as well as one with the USDA.
Also passed were grant agreements for a truck for the Veguita Volunteer Fire Department – the department does have matching funds available in their fire fund. The second was for equipment at Midway Volunteer Fire Department.
The county also got an additional $15,000 in capital outlay for the Socorro Senior Center and about $29,000 in NSIP funds to purchase food for the center.
