Trustee Patrick Garcia asked how can a person inherit someone else's water bill. It was explained that the uncollected water bills stay with the property and the service cannot be reconnected until the outstanding bill is paid. If the property is sold through a realty company the bill is collected from the realty company.

Tim Duran, Field Supervisor, asked the Mayor and the Board if Goyo Rocha could be presented with a plaque for all his years of service. The Board all agreed.

It was mentioned that the Gas Co of New Mexico met with the Chief of Police to advise that they would be moving the meters from the alleyway to the front of Apple, Cherry and Peach streets and would need a little bit of traffic control.
