Mayor Ray S. Cordova told the Board that members from FEMA had been in to meet with him in reference to the village being in a flood zone. Mayor Cordova said FEMA was in dismay at how wide and deep the Tularosa Creek is and hopes to change the designation of a flood zone. The Mayor said the process could take up to eight (8) months but they will try to expedite and hopefully do something by April.

There being no further business to come before the Board the Workshop was adjourned with a motion from Trustee Gloria Sainz and a second from Trustee Fred Tyler. The workshop adjourned at 6:30 P. M.
