Good evening. Welcome. This is a regular scheduled public hearing business meeting Valencia County Commission for June 7th, 2023. 00:00:11
Advance, would you please see us in the pledge? 00:00:17
To the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. 00:00:25
One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Thank you. 00:00:30
Welcome everybody. We have quite a few people here, so that's nice to see you. I would ask at this time though, if you would 00:00:39
please silence any. 00:00:42
Phones or any other electronic devices that you may have with you. 00:00:45
Fishers have the agenda before us. Any changes by fellow commissioners? 00:00:51
I would like to make one recommendation is that I've been asked that item 8 be tabled. 00:00:57
And the other thing that we have that's just an announcement that is on the agenda is that our July 5th. 00:01:04
2023 business meeting will be cancelled. 00:01:09
Are there any other changes, Commissioners? 00:01:13
Staff Mr. Chairman, If I might, I'd ask that we or the board consider tabling the public hearing item number six. 00:01:17
As well as action item number seven, additional work is required. We need to work with staff on that sideways ordinance to make 00:01:24
some additional revisions. We anticipate having that back before the board within the next month. 00:01:29
Anything else, Danny? Anything for me? No, Mr. Chairman. That's it. 00:01:36
OK. 00:01:40
If there are no other changes, is there a recommended recommendation to approve the agenda as amended and that would be tabling 00:01:41
item number six, item number 7 and item number 8? 00:01:45

At this point, we'll go ahead and move on to our public comment and we'll get that sheet up here shortly. 00:02:49
Excuse me, my name is Darla Gleason with just one second, please. I'll be calling you up in the order that. 00:03:03
Your names appear on the sheet. 00:03:08
Well OK, one second. I just got this. 00:03:10
So. 00:03:17
OK, sorry Missus Gleason. If you would again just come up, state your name and address for the record. 00:03:25
And I only have 3 minutes, so I'm gonna hurry. 00:03:37
Valencia County zoning rules Ma'am, would you put the microphone down a little bit so we can hear you? 00:03:41
Thank you. 00:03:45
The Ramsey County zoning rules and regulations are illegal and constitutional government overreach. 00:03:46
Causing undue hardship of the residents. 00:03:52
They deny the reality of the grandfather rule. 00:03:56
And this rule has been upheld in higher courts many times. 00:03:59
Therefore, we have a right to challenge in a court of law. 00:04:03
The ordinance requiring its mobile home space in the county. 00:04:06
To be 840 square feet is illegal and as such can't be enforced. 00:04:10
There is another example of government overreach putting an undue hardship on the residence. 00:04:15
The Constitution gives. 00:04:20
We, the American citizens. 00:04:22
Rights that no local governments can infringe upon. It has come to our attention. 00:04:24
Yeah, most of these rules and ordinances have been done during quote executive sessions. 00:04:29
Behind closed doors, that is also illegal. 00:04:34
Under the laws regarding open meetings, there should not be any closed doors. 00:04:37
At all. 00:04:41
Many years after we built our business. 00:04:43
The county zoning comes along. 00:04:46
And it says that we have to tear everything out. 00:04:48
Throw the residents out. 00:04:51
Take down all the power poles and put in underground lines. 00:04:53
This is an unreasonable demand and there's an impossible cost for we the owners, to do. It would also cause us to put people on 00:04:56
the streets. 00:05:00
We built the businesses. 00:05:04
In 1980, under the laws and regulations at the time. 00:05:06
We are grandfathered. 00:05:09
Since we were in business before, there was zoning in Valencia County. 00:05:11
We have complied with every and all requirements. 00:05:15
Including the state EPA. 00:05:18
Now I'm going to skip a little bit here. 00:05:21
My husband is 86 years old and has worked hard all his life to earn an honest living. 00:05:27
We both have been under tremendous emotional and physical mental distress. 00:05:33
The county has passed ordinances and other rules and regulations that should never have been put in place without being on a 00:05:38
ballot. 00:05:41
So that we, the citizens, could vote on them. 00:05:45
Zoning is trying to make us evict many long term residents. 00:05:48
They're living in their RV class mobile homes. That's the only home they have. 00:05:52
We have vets, Native Americans, and several residents. 00:05:57
That are low income and on public health for many reasons. 00:06:00
They are terrified. Where would they go? 00:06:04
We also have residents. 00:06:07
That are healthcare workers on contract. 00:06:09
They live in RV's because they relocate often. 00:06:12
We have workers and Intel, Facebook, Amazon, AUI. 00:06:16
Contract nurses and medical techs. 00:06:20
The rule that they can only stay for four months is a violation of their rights. 00:06:23
The workers have homes in other states. 00:06:27
And the cities, but have jobs here now. 00:06:30
We have kept our rents low so these folks can afford to have a place to live. 00:06:33
With the current situation in America. 00:06:37
Well, I guess I've got my 3 minutes. OK. Thank you. 00:06:40
But I'm going to tell you. 00:06:43
If you pass this. 00:06:46
We lose 4000 of our income. 00:06:48
That's pretty damned hard for two people 80 years old. 00:06:51
Thank you. 00:06:55
Next, Earl Gleason. And again, for the record, if you'll just state your name and address. 00:06:57
Flag. 00:07:06
If you'll just state your name and address for the record, please. 00:07:09
Ohh. 00:07:17
Mr. Bozell has been very aggressive with me about filling out the business. 00:07:18
Form. 00:07:23
But the business forum that you have. 00:07:24
Down here where where you read the bottom. 00:07:27
I wished I had bought my glasses, I guess. 00:07:29
Get ready. 00:07:33
But. 00:07:34
It states that I will comply. 00:07:35
If I get this signed and I think you knew that, it was going to do that to me. 00:07:38
That it was going to trap me. 00:07:43
Because if I comply with signing this. 00:07:45
And then you guys approve it. 00:07:48
You're gonna throw all these people out because you already are asking to do it. 00:07:50
So, so at that point you will even destroy me with two mobile Home Park businesses? 00:07:54
Now I wanted to explain something. 00:08:01
A Commission? 00:08:04
In about. 00:08:05
Well, it it I had a fellow that rented from me. 00:08:07
This is the rental agreement. 00:08:10
His name was Robert Holguin. He had been thrown out of Berlin. 00:08:12
So I came to the Commission and I guess they accepted me then. 00:08:16
To talk to the Commission. 00:08:20
And where you would talk back to me, but. 00:08:22
This way I just talked to you and you don't answer. 00:08:25
But I ran into Robert Goggin and I came before the Commission because Hoss Foster sent the woman down there to #16 lot. 00:08:28
To throw Mr. Robert Olguin out. 00:08:36
And she he didn't go with written thing. He just went with her, sent the woman down there. 00:08:39
And she told him you had to be out in 30 days. 00:08:45
And then some of the other beers that were there listening got into an argument with the lady. 00:08:48
And she came back. 00:08:54
And she came back here. She was a one day employee. 00:08:55
She told fans foster. I quit. 00:08:59
I'm not gonna persecute people. 00:09:02
So she quit and she went to Farmington, where she was from, and went to work in Farmington. 00:09:04
So that that's just one story about Robert Ocean. 00:09:10
Ohh. 00:09:13
Back in. 00:09:16
I've got some notices here too. 00:09:18
In 2012 was when Robert Hogan moved in. 00:09:21
But when I came before the Commission. 00:09:25
The commissioners, I told them what was happening. 00:09:28
And they come. They voted to leave. Robert Hogan lived there. 00:09:32
And so he lived there for about four more years until he had a stroke. 00:09:36
And he was already disabled. But he had a stroke. 00:09:42
So they had to move him in with family in another spot. I don't know where he is, but I talked with Robert the other day and he 00:09:44
told me that they they didn't even give me anything in writing. 00:09:50
But now you guys give it in writing. 00:09:55
And and the the. 00:09:58
Things that are out there is the one in writing to throw out the people. 00:10:00
In in Los Chavez in Mr. Bozelle district. 00:10:05
Mr. Buzzell says he will not talk to me because I happened to mention the word. 00:10:09
Thank you, Mr. Lisa. 00:10:15
OK. 00:10:17
The three minutes, that is. 00:10:19
That people are allowed now. 00:10:22
Is because. 00:10:23
The commissioner was in Richardson's spot. 00:10:25
Basically said, we're 3 minutes are up. Thank you. OK. I appreciate your comments. I know you don't like to hear nothing. 00:10:28
OK, Next Gary Harper. 00:10:35
And again, if you'll state your name and address for the record please. 00:10:43
Gary Harper. 00:10:46
I live in this mobile Home Park to be Gleason's control. 00:10:47
I've never spoken one of these fandangos before. I feel like I'm running a 4 minute mile. 00:10:52
I gave 11 years to the service of this nation. 00:11:00
So that we can live the life that we live. 00:11:03
And now it seems like it's going to be disrupted all of a sudden. 00:11:06
Because a few people want to pass some laws. 00:11:10
I've been 30 years in that mobile Home Park. 00:11:14
My wife died in that mobile park. 00:11:17
We are content with the way that we live. 00:11:20
We just need to leave it be. 00:11:23
Being a veteran. 00:11:26
You've heard that there are many veterans in this park. 00:11:28
Four or five to be exact. 00:11:31
And right now. 00:11:34
We don't need the news finding out the more veterans are being dislodged. 00:11:36
That seems to come up in the news a whole lot. 00:11:41
And the Indians that they were talking about. 00:11:45
Residing in this far capital to be. 00:11:49
Black Mountain. 00:11:52
Apache. 00:11:54
Which are protected under the BIA. 00:11:55
We don't want them to get involved. 00:11:58
But we will push whatever buttons we need to. 00:12:01
Slow the momentum of this Commission. 00:12:04
Got some time left. Thank you much. Thank you, Sir. 00:12:07
Next is Armando. 00:12:12
Zuba, I believe. 00:12:14
Yeah, if you just wait to get up to to the microphone so we can support you. Thank you for your time. Just two points. This reason 00:12:19
covered most of the earth that I was going to say very good. 00:12:23
What you will more likely. 00:12:29
You violating the 1st Amendment. 00:12:31
To these people and the 4th Amendment. 00:12:33
By driving them out. 00:12:36
My only concern other than their my friends and neighbors and choose to live in a smaller residence. 00:12:38
Is that if the Gleesons can't continue the park then myself, I live in a mobile home and my family will be ousted also because 00:12:43
they can't afford to keep the the park. 00:12:48
And I can't afford to move. 00:12:54
I've been there for 20 years. I'm retired. 00:12:56
I've got an injury, I've got the disability and you guys are going to force this issue and. 00:12:58
If that's the case, we need. 00:13:03
I think we should all get a class action suit against you, each one of you. 00:13:05
That's my time. Thank you. 00:13:10
Thank you, Sir. 00:13:11
Daniel had a meal. 00:13:14
Hello County Commission Daniel Hamill, 17, Francis Rd. Los Lunas, NM. 00:13:21
I wanted to come here today and just say thank you to Miss Lena Benavides and her Rd. crew. 00:13:26
Our roads were in that need of attention and they went out and graded those roads and did an awesome job. 00:13:33
And we really appreciate them paying that attention to our roads. So thank you so much, ma'am. 00:13:39
And also that I wanted to add that we look forward and hopefully soon. 00:13:43
Of the execution of a capital outlay grant. 00:13:48
That was received by the county from the State of Mexico in 2022. 00:13:52
For the paving of our roads in godless states. 00:13:58
And so we look forward to hopefully soon seeing that started. 00:14:01
To pave our roads because it again, you guys did receive a capital outlay grant. 00:14:05
To do so, to pay attention to our roads. So again I wanted to say thank you so much for that and hopefully we see something soon 00:14:10
on that. 00:14:13
Thank you. Thank you. 00:14:17
Joe M Moya. 00:14:21
And Mr. Mayor, if you would just state your name and address for the record, please. 00:14:29
My name's Joe Moyer and I live in 197 El Cerro Mission. 00:14:34
I'm going to the tenants there and. 00:14:39
All I gotta say is that it would be devastating to me because I'm from the 67, I'm disabled, I've had a heart attack. 00:14:42
I don't know how. 00:14:52
You start over at this age. 00:14:53
So all I got to say is at the very heart for not just me, but all the tenants. 00:14:57
That's that's about all I got. 00:15:06
And say. 00:15:08
Thank you very much for your comment. 00:15:10
Rose rainwater. 00:15:14
And if you would also state your name for the record, Rose Rainwater, I live at 812 Darla Rd. 00:15:22
I've been living there. 00:15:28
27 years. 00:15:31
My husband died there too. 00:15:33
And I can't go anywhere. 00:15:35
I can't afford to go anywhere. I have a good job now. 00:15:38
But moving that trailer and moving it to somewhere else, it could work for me. 00:15:41
I'm 60 years old. 00:15:45
And my mother. 00:15:48
Is was married to Gary Gleason. 00:15:49
And she died in the park. 00:15:52
And I can't afford to go anywhere else. I mean, I have a good job. 00:15:54
You know, but I can't afford to move my trailer and move it to where I can afford to do anything. 00:15:58
Because the money I'm saving is just to fix what I can fix. 00:16:05
But that's it. 00:16:08
So 27 years in that trailer, It's a long time. 00:16:11
And I am comfortable there. 00:16:15
And I can't. I can't. I don't really want to move because I like it there. 00:16:17
Thank you. 00:16:23
Thank you. 00:16:24
OK, we got a. 00:16:27
Robert Gallegos and the Monique or when are you guys going to be speaking together or separately? 00:16:29
OK. 00:16:34
If you both just come up and state your name and address names and address for the record please. 00:16:36
So I'm only Corona. 00:16:45
And I live. 00:16:49
I live in Middle Lake and. 00:16:50
I live in Solomon Estates, so we are. 00:16:52
Here to represent. 00:16:56
Your guys's blue card. 00:16:58
Union. 00:16:59
So we would like to thank you for taking the time and consideration for our proposal. 00:17:00
It will help with the employee retention. 00:17:05
It will also help with the increase of cost for uniforms due to the type of work our blue collar workers do. 00:17:07
All of us. 00:17:13
All of this will left a great weight off the employees and their family shoulders because of the cost of living nowadays. 00:17:15
Umm. 00:17:21
We've had a very positive and. 00:17:22
Very productive experience negotiating with the county. 00:17:24
And we feel like we've been heard. We feel like they care. 00:17:28
We're just here again to thank you for your consideration. 00:17:31
OK. 00:17:34
Thank you for calling you guys. Appreciate you. 00:17:35
OK. Next. 00:17:38
Christopher Stirling. 00:17:40
Hello, my name is Christopher Sterling. I'm a resident of 812 Darla Rd. SW Unit 16. 00:17:45
I do have a a a prepared statement here, so first of all I'd like to thank the Commission for taking the time to have this meeting 00:17:52
here and allowing us to speak freely on a very pressing issue. 00:17:59
I would like all of you to just please take a moment and look at these people behind me. 00:18:06
Take a look and look into their faces, because this is Valencia County's newest homeless population. 00:18:12
It's a travesty in my opinion. 00:18:19
And I come here today as a partial representative of this community. Obviously they've. 00:18:23
Decided to show up as well. 00:18:28
Currently, the Valencia County Zoning Commission is working towards removing these people from their homes without any 00:18:31
consideration of the adverse effects and hardships that will place these residents under. 00:18:36
The ordinance that affects this community is Ordinance Code 154.173 and 154.172. 00:18:43
The stated purpose of this ordinance is to promote health. 00:18:51
Safety and general welfare of the residents. 00:18:55
Now I ask each and every one of you this. 00:18:59
It does not is denying an elderly couple currently in their 80s their retirement plan. 00:19:02
Promoting health. 00:19:07
Is kicking a veteran. 00:19:09
This room onto the streets promoting safety. 00:19:12
And is contributing to an already overwhelming homeless epidemic truly a move towards promoting general welfare of these 00:19:15
residents? 00:19:20
Our small community is prime is primarily comprised of senior citizens. 00:19:26
Veterans and lower income residents. 00:19:31
Most of whom have found a sense of independence they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. 00:19:35
Excuse me? 00:19:42
Umm. 00:19:43
Some of even some of these folks have worked tirelessly for years to pay off their home. 00:19:46
They now live in. 00:19:51
And for. 00:19:52
And for this council to see it now uninhabitable simply because it has a living space of 750 square feet versus 840 square feet. 00:19:55
I would just like to know how that's justified. 00:20:04
And I would also like to know who tends to who has the expectation of helping these people? 00:20:08
Is it you, Commission Commissioner Richardson? 00:20:15
Is that you, Commissioner Bizzell? That's going to help Gary? 00:20:18
Finding an affordable home. 00:20:22
Understandably, Los Lunas is currently the second fastest growing city in New Mexico. 00:20:26
It's true. 00:20:31
And yes, improvements to our community are necessary, and they will be necessary. 00:20:33
And. 00:20:39
Excuse me here. 00:20:41
And yes. 00:20:42
Change will be inevitable. 00:20:43
But I ask you one last question, excuse me, is growth. 00:20:46
Improvement. 00:20:51
And change? Really worth uprooting the lives of the very residents. 00:20:52
That have contributed to this county for so many years that have kept this county alive for so many years. 00:20:56
Everybody else has had their 3 minutes and you've had yours. I appreciate it. That's the question I leave you with. Is it really 00:21:03
worth it? Thank you. 00:21:06
Harkins. 00:21:13
This is not we're not gonna tolerate clapping and out outbreaks like that during the the meeting. So please just keep your 00:21:18
comments and your applause to yourself for now, please. 00:21:22
Listening to me. 00:21:27
My name is Jeanette Marcus. 00:21:30
I live on. 00:21:33
Darla and Earl's property at 197 Health Settle Mission Rd. 00:21:34
I'm going to make this easy on everybody. I'll be out in October. Not my choice. 00:21:38
But by others. 00:21:43
I cannot keep up with the Joneses since my camper is the smallest one. 00:21:45
And not the prettiest, so I give up. 00:21:49
I can't afford a big, fancy mobile home. 00:21:52
I thought I found my Piece of Heaven on 197 on 7 Mission Rd. Thank you. 00:21:55
Thank you. 00:22:01
Next name, I think it's Paul and I'm not sure about the last name. Is there a Paul that's signed up? 00:22:04
Thank you. 00:22:11
That's correct. I guess I should. 00:22:13
If you'll just state your name and address for the record, please yes, my name is Paul Buki. I live at 812 Darla Trailer 22. 00:22:16
Ohh yeah I'm disabled too, but I was saying that. 00:22:22
Ohh, not trying to take up too much of your time, but I sure don't want to get. 00:22:27
Put out on the street and put homeless or anything like that, it would be devastating for me and. 00:22:31
My girlfriend that we lived there and. 00:22:36
We're just trying to get along with the county. 00:22:39
If they pass a new Valencia County Zoning Ordinance. 00:22:41
I didn't know anything about the 800 square feet or. 00:22:45
The different living. 00:22:49

Commissioners, I'm here to present a subject matter, not your endorsement, not your approval. 00:25:25
But to know that we're having a event regarding prayer at the heart, which is a national. 00:25:31
State, and now we're doing it 20, I mean 33 counties, 23 nations here in New Mexico called prayer at the heart. We're going to be 00:25:37
praying. 00:25:41
At the county fairgrounds on July the 1st. 00:25:46
And what is it all about this prayer? We need prayer. We all need prayer. We need God to intervene in our county. 00:25:49
In our state, and so we're here. 00:25:55
Like I say, to invite you all to participate if you so are inclined. 00:25:58
We're going to, it's going to be from 10:00 o'clock. 00:26:03
Through 4:00 o'clock. 00:26:05
On July the first, so I invite you. I'll leave flowers for you all, but I certainly, if I can pray for you, pray God speaks. 00:26:06
God's love be upon you, God's protection and God meeting the needs of all the people here in Jesus name. Thank you. 00:26:14
Ohh Sir, Mr. Montoya, did you have Flyers? You're gonna leave us? She said. 00:26:22
Well, you could just leave to dance with Danny here. 00:26:27
Thank you. 00:26:30
Thank you. 00:26:33
Thank you, thank you, thank you. 00:26:36
Ohh OK. 00:26:40
All right. We'll move on to item number 5, discussion on action items. Commissioners, is anything you want to bring to the table 00:26:42
tonight? 00:26:45
I didn't see your name on the list, Sir. 00:26:51
OK, let me just get you to. 00:26:56
Get your name on the list, so we have a record of that please. 00:26:59
And I'll give you your time. 00:27:02
Ship that, Sir. 00:27:03
So. 00:27:13
Thank you Sir. If you'll just Sir, if you'll just state your name and address for the record. 00:27:15
My name is Alfredo Gomez. I live on 6/22 and 1/2 Wisconsin out of Valletta, New Mexico. 00:27:21
I am currently the Vice Commander of the American Legion Outpost City One and also the Veteran Service Officer. 00:27:27
I was just recently addressed with the issue of. 00:27:32
Currently zoning issue that is going to be interrupting the lives of like quite a few individuals that include veterans. So as a 00:27:35
veteran service officer my concerns of opiate helping our veterans and our community is one of my highest priorities. 00:27:42
And so a few few items I want to just bring to the attention of the Council. 00:27:50
If you do choose to actually conduct and follow through with this zoning and and eradicate these individuals or have them move to 00:27:55
another location, is there going to be another means that's going to allow for these low income individuals to provide them a 00:28:00
suitable and a provable housing place for them to provide? 00:28:06
And also I understand that the current issue is that it's an RV. The issues with the RV. 00:28:11
And there's RV's. If you look up the the loan and the loan applications for an RV, they could be classified as permanent 00:28:16
residency. And the only thing that classifieds are qualifies for a permanent residency is a bathroom, a kitchen and a sleeping 00:28:22
space. And I believe all these qualify under these homes. 00:28:28
And no matter what type of home we live in, that is our home. 00:28:34
That is what we represent and we stand for. We earned, we we try to build up and make it our own peace and piece of land. 00:28:38
And also if the gentleman that owns the property and he's a sole proprietor and if he has no issues with these, what what gives it 00:28:45
safe for our government to come in and tell them that they can't do this as long as it was is within sanitations everything else 00:28:52
that is covering all the other, I mean for sizing the home by 50 feet by 50 yards. 00:28:59
You know, listening to the stories of these individuals, and I'm new to this topic, I'm, I'm not, I don't know all the details 00:29:06
honestly. My concern is you're going to be kicking out some veterans out of their home and I'm concerned about that. And I and I 00:29:11
promise you if such thing does occur, we will let people know who are the individuals that so decided such a thing for coming up 00:29:16
and coming elections. 00:29:21
Like, you know what? Are these truly the people that we want to be in charge of Our community, our county, and of our community 00:29:27
and our our our community. These are our people, all the people that live here and reside with us. As a veteran, we've stood up 00:29:31
and defended this nation for that flag, for this state. 00:29:36
I know we just want everybody to have their own personal right. 00:29:42
For their own personal view, the liberty and justice their own. 00:29:44
Choice. 00:29:48
And and that is what we defended as as veterans of our country and you're asking individuals not to live their life and kick them 00:29:49
out. 00:29:53
So again, I want to thank you again for your time for taking the time to listen to our. 00:29:57
Disputes and. 00:30:03
And hopefully you guys take to consideration all the different conversations that were spoken today. And I appreciate your time 00:30:05
today. Thank you, Council. Thank you. 00:30:09
OK. At this time, we'll go ahead and now move on to item number 5. 00:30:14
Again, discussion items. Commissioners, is there anything you wish to bring to table this evening? 00:30:19

Mr. Noah. 00:44:53
Under Sheriff Nova. 00:44:55
Chairman, Commissioners, thank you guys for your time. 00:44:57
Last year. 00:45:00
House Bill 68 and 2022 passed the state. The governor signed it and that provided money to. 00:45:03
For law enforcement across the state for recruitment and retention efforts. 00:45:10
Valencia County was awarded $525,000 out of that grant over a three-year period. 00:45:14
Once the county did receive the first year's check for a total of $300,000. 00:45:21
In December of. 00:45:26
21st The Commission met and I presented a resolution to the Commission on how to spend that money. 00:45:28
Among those was hiring 4 deputies, hiring bonuses, referral stipend and a retention stipend. 00:45:35
The money has to be spent by the end of the fiscal year as of the end of this month. 00:45:41
And in that resolution I put that any unspent money out of that would be rolled into the stipend. 00:45:45
The MU in front of you is to distribute that to stipend out to the union members of the Sheriff's Office to. 00:45:51
So we can deplete that money and not have to give it back to the state. 00:45:58
Umm. 00:46:02
Just for your information, the state, I know Dave Patel worked with me a lot on trying to get this on what the requirements from 00:46:06
the state were to pay on this and. 00:46:10
Was very vague and difficult. 00:46:16
But it bottom line, it had to be spent on certified officers and not uncertified. 00:46:19
So being that being said, there would be 34. 00:46:26
Individuals from the Sheriff's Office receiving that money and 24 of them belonged to the union, that ten of them are non union 00:46:30
members. 00:46:33
Umm. 00:46:37
Working with Loretta on the numbers to cover the Medicare cost to the county. 00:46:38
There's a small difference that the county has to pick up, which is $3.69. 00:46:44
I'd rather wanted to round off and not have sense in there, so that's what the counties. 00:46:49
Difference The county has to pick up on this. 00:46:55
And the stipend amount to the deputies comes out to 7590 dollars. 00:46:58
Any questions on any of that questions? 00:47:08
Period. There is none. Is there a recommendation? 00:47:13
Mr. Chair, I like to make a motion to approve. 00:47:16
Second, you have a motion second for approval. Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:47:19
There be none. Commissioner Richard, you vote yes. Mission puzzle. Your vote yes. Commissioner Parking your vote yes, I vote yes 00:47:24
is approved. 00:47:26
Government commissioners, thank you. 00:47:29
You guys. 00:47:32
OK, item number 16. 00:47:45
Direction to staff regarding Mr. GCD Staging request of 1 Set 160 All Sarah Lucas Soonest, New Mexico. 00:47:47
Mr. Neff. 00:47:54
Mr. Chairman, Members of the Commission. 00:47:56
We received a request from the Mr. GCD. 00:47:58
For the temporary use of the property at 160 El Cerro Loop. 00:48:01
And the reason is to store materials. 00:48:06
As a staging area to improve levies. 00:48:09
And basically fill. You know they want to store fill dirt and rip wrap and use it as a staging area to. 00:48:14
Expedite the use in ditch, bank and levy repairs in the area. 00:48:21
And it's basically to reduce the. 00:48:25
Repairs intended and the risk of ditches breaking in for and flooding. 00:48:28
Of course we the county certainly wants to do everything it can to help out its residents and nobody wants to get flooded. So I I 00:48:33
I would recommend that we. 00:48:38
Authorize the use of this property as they requested. 00:48:43
Except with one caveat. They did send us an agreement. Their their form of agreement. 00:48:46
Which? 00:48:51
Is basically, I believe, designed for to send to a private property user. 00:48:52
And it does have a provision in there that requires the release of the RG CD upon execution, which is problematic for a county, 00:48:56
you know, for a government entity. It's really not a government to government agreement. 00:49:02
My suggestion would be that a motion would be in order to direct the county manager to approve the agreement. 00:49:09
Removing the problematic clause and and allowing them to use the property as they see fit at that point. 00:49:14
Questions Mr. *****. 00:49:20
There be none as a recommendation. 00:49:24
Chair. 00:49:26
Please, I'd like to make a motion to approve it as. 00:49:27
Adrian. 00:49:31
Advisors. 00:49:33
We have a motion for approval making the changes from legal. 00:49:34
Is there a second? 00:49:38
2nd. 00:49:39
The motion and 2nd. Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd. 00:49:40
There being none, Commissioners, in your vote yes, they should be your vote yes. Parking your vote yes I vote yes is approved as 00:49:43
amended. 00:49:46
OK. 00:49:51
I got the one upcoming meeting to announce June 21st, 2023. We will have a public hearing business meeting. 00:49:52
At 5:00 O'clock here in the Chambers and also via Facebook live our July 5th, 2023. 00:49:59
Business meeting has been cancelled. 00:50:04
And are there any closing comments from fellow commissioners? 00:50:07
Mr. Chairman, I know I'm not Commissioner, but Mr. Montoya should be right back with those signature pages. 00:50:10
And with that, we are adjourned. Just stick around, sign that document, then we'll be good. 00:50:17
Think of the. 00:50:21

Good evening. Welcome. This is a regular scheduled public hearing business meeting Valencia County Commission for June 7th, 2023. 00:00:11
Advance, would you please see us in the pledge? 00:00:17

Welcome everybody. We have quite a few people here, so that's nice to see you. I would ask at this time though, if you would 00:00:39

Staff Mr. Chairman, If I might, I'd ask that we or the board consider tabling the public hearing item number six. 00:01:17

some additional revisions. We anticipate having that back before the board within the next month. 00:01:29
Anything else, Danny? Anything for me? No, Mr. Chairman. That's it. 00:01:36

Your names appear on the sheet. 00:03:08
Well OK, one second. I just got this. 00:03:10
So. 00:03:17
OK, sorry Missus Gleason. If you would again just come up, state your name and address for the record. 00:03:25
And I only have 3 minutes, so I'm gonna hurry. 00:03:37
Valencia County zoning rules Ma'am, would you put the microphone down a little bit so we can hear you? 00:03:41
Thank you. 00:03:45
The Ramsey County zoning rules and regulations are illegal and constitutional government overreach. 00:03:46
Causing undue hardship of the residents. 00:03:52
They deny the reality of the grandfather rule. 00:03:56
And this rule has been upheld in higher courts many times. 00:03:59
Therefore, we have a right to challenge in a court of law. 00:04:03
The ordinance requiring its mobile home space in the county. 00:04:06
To be 840 square feet is illegal and as such can't be enforced. 00:04:10
There is another example of government overreach putting an undue hardship on the residence. 00:04:15
The Constitution gives. 00:04:20
We, the American citizens. 00:04:22
Rights that no local governments can infringe upon. It has come to our attention. 00:04:24
Yeah, most of these rules and ordinances have been done during quote executive sessions. 00:04:29
Behind closed doors, that is also illegal. 00:04:34
Under the laws regarding open meetings, there should not be any closed doors. 00:04:37
At all. 00:04:41
Many years after we built our business. 00:04:43
The county zoning comes along. 00:04:46
And it says that we have to tear everything out. 00:04:48
Throw the residents out. 00:04:51
Take down all the power poles and put in underground lines. 00:04:53
This is an unreasonable demand and there's an impossible cost for we the owners, to do. It would also cause us to put people on 00:04:56
the streets. 00:05:00
We built the businesses. 00:05:04
In 1980, under the laws and regulations at the time. 00:05:06
We are grandfathered. 00:05:09
Since we were in business before, there was zoning in Valencia County. 00:05:11
We have complied with every and all requirements. 00:05:15
Including the state EPA. 00:05:18
Now I'm going to skip a little bit here. 00:05:21
My husband is 86 years old and has worked hard all his life to earn an honest living. 00:05:27
We both have been under tremendous emotional and physical mental distress. 00:05:33
The county has passed ordinances and other rules and regulations that should never have been put in place without being on a 00:05:38
ballot. 00:05:41
So that we, the citizens, could vote on them. 00:05:45
Zoning is trying to make us evict many long term residents. 00:05:48
They're living in their RV class mobile homes. That's the only home they have. 00:05:52
We have vets, Native Americans, and several residents. 00:05:57
That are low income and on public health for many reasons. 00:06:00
They are terrified. Where would they go? 00:06:04
We also have residents. 00:06:07
That are healthcare workers on contract. 00:06:09
They live in RV's because they relocate often. 00:06:12
We have workers and Intel, Facebook, Amazon, AUI. 00:06:16
Contract nurses and medical techs. 00:06:20
The rule that they can only stay for four months is a violation of their rights. 00:06:23
The workers have homes in other states. 00:06:27
And the cities, but have jobs here now. 00:06:30
We have kept our rents low so these folks can afford to have a place to live. 00:06:33
With the current situation in America. 00:06:37
Well, I guess I've got my 3 minutes. OK. Thank you. 00:06:40
But I'm going to tell you. 00:06:43
If you pass this. 00:06:46
We lose 4000 of our income. 00:06:48
That's pretty damned hard for two people 80 years old. 00:06:51
Thank you. 00:06:55
Next, Earl Gleason. And again, for the record, if you'll just state your name and address. 00:06:57
Flag. 00:07:06
If you'll just state your name and address for the record, please. 00:07:09
Ohh. 00:07:17
Mr. Bozell has been very aggressive with me about filling out the business. 00:07:18
Form. 00:07:23
But the business forum that you have. 00:07:24
Down here where where you read the bottom. 00:07:27
I wished I had bought my glasses, I guess. 00:07:29
Get ready. 00:07:33
But. 00:07:34
It states that I will comply. 00:07:35
If I get this signed and I think you knew that, it was going to do that to me. 00:07:38
That it was going to trap me. 00:07:43
Because if I comply with signing this. 00:07:45
And then you guys approve it. 00:07:48
You're gonna throw all these people out because you already are asking to do it. 00:07:50
So, so at that point you will even destroy me with two mobile Home Park businesses? 00:07:54
Now I wanted to explain something. 00:08:01
A Commission? 00:08:04
In about. 00:08:05
Well, it it I had a fellow that rented from me. 00:08:07
This is the rental agreement. 00:08:10
His name was Robert Holguin. He had been thrown out of Berlin. 00:08:12
So I came to the Commission and I guess they accepted me then. 00:08:16
To talk to the Commission. 00:08:20
And where you would talk back to me, but. 00:08:22
This way I just talked to you and you don't answer. 00:08:25
But I ran into Robert Goggin and I came before the Commission because Hoss Foster sent the woman down there to #16 lot. 00:08:28
To throw Mr. Robert Olguin out. 00:08:36
And she he didn't go with written thing. He just went with her, sent the woman down there. 00:08:39
And she told him you had to be out in 30 days. 00:08:45
And then some of the other beers that were there listening got into an argument with the lady. 00:08:48
And she came back. 00:08:54
And she came back here. She was a one day employee. 00:08:55
She told fans foster. I quit. 00:08:59
I'm not gonna persecute people. 00:09:02
So she quit and she went to Farmington, where she was from, and went to work in Farmington. 00:09:04
So that that's just one story about Robert Ocean. 00:09:10
Ohh. 00:09:13
Back in. 00:09:16
I've got some notices here too. 00:09:18
In 2012 was when Robert Hogan moved in. 00:09:21
But when I came before the Commission. 00:09:25
The commissioners, I told them what was happening. 00:09:28
And they come. They voted to leave. Robert Hogan lived there. 00:09:32
And so he lived there for about four more years until he had a stroke. 00:09:36
And he was already disabled. But he had a stroke. 00:09:42
So they had to move him in with family in another spot. I don't know where he is, but I talked with Robert the other day and he 00:09:44
told me that they they didn't even give me anything in writing. 00:09:50
But now you guys give it in writing. 00:09:55
And and the the. 00:09:58
Things that are out there is the one in writing to throw out the people. 00:10:00
In in Los Chavez in Mr. Bozelle district. 00:10:05
Mr. Buzzell says he will not talk to me because I happened to mention the word. 00:10:09
Thank you, Mr. Lisa. 00:10:15
OK. 00:10:17
The three minutes, that is. 00:10:19
That people are allowed now. 00:10:22
Is because. 00:10:23
The commissioner was in Richardson's spot. 00:10:25
Basically said, we're 3 minutes are up. Thank you. OK. I appreciate your comments. I know you don't like to hear nothing. 00:10:28
OK, Next Gary Harper. 00:10:35
And again, if you'll state your name and address for the record please. 00:10:43
Gary Harper. 00:10:46
I live in this mobile Home Park to be Gleason's control. 00:10:47
I've never spoken one of these fandangos before. I feel like I'm running a 4 minute mile. 00:10:52
I gave 11 years to the service of this nation. 00:11:00
So that we can live the life that we live. 00:11:03
And now it seems like it's going to be disrupted all of a sudden. 00:11:06
Because a few people want to pass some laws. 00:11:10
I've been 30 years in that mobile Home Park. 00:11:14
My wife died in that mobile park. 00:11:17
We are content with the way that we live. 00:11:20
We just need to leave it be. 00:11:23
Being a veteran. 00:11:26
You've heard that there are many veterans in this park. 00:11:28
Four or five to be exact. 00:11:31
And right now. 00:11:34
We don't need the news finding out the more veterans are being dislodged. 00:11:36
That seems to come up in the news a whole lot. 00:11:41
And the Indians that they were talking about. 00:11:45
Residing in this far capital to be. 00:11:49
Black Mountain. 00:11:52
Apache. 00:11:54
Which are protected under the BIA. 00:11:55
We don't want them to get involved. 00:11:58
But we will push whatever buttons we need to. 00:12:01
Slow the momentum of this Commission. 00:12:04
Got some time left. Thank you much. Thank you, Sir. 00:12:07
Next is Armando. 00:12:12
Zuba, I believe. 00:12:14
Yeah, if you just wait to get up to to the microphone so we can support you. Thank you for your time. Just two points. This reason 00:12:19
covered most of the earth that I was going to say very good. 00:12:23
What you will more likely. 00:12:29
You violating the 1st Amendment. 00:12:31
To these people and the 4th Amendment. 00:12:33
By driving them out. 00:12:36
My only concern other than their my friends and neighbors and choose to live in a smaller residence. 00:12:38
Is that if the Gleesons can't continue the park then myself, I live in a mobile home and my family will be ousted also because 00:12:43
they can't afford to keep the the park. 00:12:48
And I can't afford to move. 00:12:54
I've been there for 20 years. I'm retired. 00:12:56
I've got an injury, I've got the disability and you guys are going to force this issue and. 00:12:58
If that's the case, we need. 00:13:03
I think we should all get a class action suit against you, each one of you. 00:13:05
That's my time. Thank you. 00:13:10
Thank you, Sir. 00:13:11
Daniel had a meal. 00:13:14
Hello County Commission Daniel Hamill, 17, Francis Rd. Los Lunas, NM. 00:13:21
I wanted to come here today and just say thank you to Miss Lena Benavides and her Rd. crew. 00:13:26
Our roads were in that need of attention and they went out and graded those roads and did an awesome job. 00:13:33
And we really appreciate them paying that attention to our roads. So thank you so much, ma'am. 00:13:39
And also that I wanted to add that we look forward and hopefully soon. 00:13:43
Of the execution of a capital outlay grant. 00:13:48
That was received by the county from the State of Mexico in 2022. 00:13:52
For the paving of our roads in godless states. 00:13:58
And so we look forward to hopefully soon seeing that started. 00:14:01
To pave our roads because it again, you guys did receive a capital outlay grant. 00:14:05
To do so, to pay attention to our roads. So again I wanted to say thank you so much for that and hopefully we see something soon 00:14:10
on that. 00:14:13
Thank you. Thank you. 00:14:17
Joe M Moya. 00:14:21
And Mr. Mayor, if you would just state your name and address for the record, please. 00:14:29
My name's Joe Moyer and I live in 197 El Cerro Mission. 00:14:34
I'm going to the tenants there and. 00:14:39
All I gotta say is that it would be devastating to me because I'm from the 67, I'm disabled, I've had a heart attack. 00:14:42
I don't know how. 00:14:52
You start over at this age. 00:14:53
So all I got to say is at the very heart for not just me, but all the tenants. 00:14:57
That's that's about all I got. 00:15:06
And say. 00:15:08
Thank you very much for your comment. 00:15:10
Rose rainwater. 00:15:14
And if you would also state your name for the record, Rose Rainwater, I live at 812 Darla Rd. 00:15:22
I've been living there. 00:15:28
27 years. 00:15:31
My husband died there too. 00:15:33
And I can't go anywhere. 00:15:35
I can't afford to go anywhere. I have a good job now. 00:15:38
But moving that trailer and moving it to somewhere else, it could work for me. 00:15:41
I'm 60 years old. 00:15:45
And my mother. 00:15:48
Is was married to Gary Gleason. 00:15:49
And she died in the park. 00:15:52
And I can't afford to go anywhere else. I mean, I have a good job. 00:15:54
You know, but I can't afford to move my trailer and move it to where I can afford to do anything. 00:15:58
Because the money I'm saving is just to fix what I can fix. 00:16:05
But that's it. 00:16:08
So 27 years in that trailer, It's a long time. 00:16:11
And I am comfortable there. 00:16:15
And I can't. I can't. I don't really want to move because I like it there. 00:16:17
Thank you. 00:16:23
Thank you. 00:16:24
OK, we got a. 00:16:27
Robert Gallegos and the Monique or when are you guys going to be speaking together or separately? 00:16:29
OK. 00:16:34
If you both just come up and state your name and address names and address for the record please. 00:16:36
So I'm only Corona. 00:16:45
And I live. 00:16:49
I live in Middle Lake and. 00:16:50
I live in Solomon Estates, so we are. 00:16:52
Here to represent. 00:16:56
Your guys's blue card. 00:16:58
Union. 00:16:59
So we would like to thank you for taking the time and consideration for our proposal. 00:17:00
It will help with the employee retention. 00:17:05
It will also help with the increase of cost for uniforms due to the type of work our blue collar workers do. 00:17:07
All of us. 00:17:13
All of this will left a great weight off the employees and their family shoulders because of the cost of living nowadays. 00:17:15
Umm. 00:17:21
We've had a very positive and. 00:17:22
Very productive experience negotiating with the county. 00:17:24
And we feel like we've been heard. We feel like they care. 00:17:28
We're just here again to thank you for your consideration. 00:17:31
OK. 00:17:34
Thank you for calling you guys. Appreciate you. 00:17:35
OK. Next. 00:17:38
Christopher Stirling. 00:17:40
Hello, my name is Christopher Sterling. I'm a resident of 812 Darla Rd. SW Unit 16. 00:17:45
I do have a a a prepared statement here, so first of all I'd like to thank the Commission for taking the time to have this meeting 00:17:52
here and allowing us to speak freely on a very pressing issue. 00:17:59
I would like all of you to just please take a moment and look at these people behind me. 00:18:06
Take a look and look into their faces, because this is Valencia County's newest homeless population. 00:18:12
It's a travesty in my opinion. 00:18:19
And I come here today as a partial representative of this community. Obviously they've. 00:18:23
Decided to show up as well. 00:18:28
Currently, the Valencia County Zoning Commission is working towards removing these people from their homes without any 00:18:31
consideration of the adverse effects and hardships that will place these residents under. 00:18:36
The ordinance that affects this community is Ordinance Code 154.173 and 154.172. 00:18:43
The stated purpose of this ordinance is to promote health. 00:18:51
Safety and general welfare of the residents. 00:18:55
Now I ask each and every one of you this. 00:18:59
It does not is denying an elderly couple currently in their 80s their retirement plan. 00:19:02
Promoting health. 00:19:07
Is kicking a veteran. 00:19:09
This room onto the streets promoting safety. 00:19:12
And is contributing to an already overwhelming homeless epidemic truly a move towards promoting general welfare of these 00:19:15
residents? 00:19:20
Our small community is prime is primarily comprised of senior citizens. 00:19:26
Veterans and lower income residents. 00:19:31
Most of whom have found a sense of independence they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. 00:19:35
Excuse me? 00:19:42
Umm. 00:19:43
Some of even some of these folks have worked tirelessly for years to pay off their home. 00:19:46
They now live in. 00:19:51
And for. 00:19:52
And for this council to see it now uninhabitable simply because it has a living space of 750 square feet versus 840 square feet. 00:19:55
I would just like to know how that's justified. 00:20:04
And I would also like to know who tends to who has the expectation of helping these people? 00:20:08
Is it you, Commission Commissioner Richardson? 00:20:15
Is that you, Commissioner Bizzell? That's going to help Gary? 00:20:18
Finding an affordable home. 00:20:22
Understandably, Los Lunas is currently the second fastest growing city in New Mexico. 00:20:26
It's true. 00:20:31
And yes, improvements to our community are necessary, and they will be necessary. 00:20:33
And. 00:20:39
Excuse me here. 00:20:41
And yes. 00:20:42
Change will be inevitable. 00:20:43
But I ask you one last question, excuse me, is growth. 00:20:46
Improvement. 00:20:51
And change? Really worth uprooting the lives of the very residents. 00:20:52
That have contributed to this county for so many years that have kept this county alive for so many years. 00:20:56
Everybody else has had their 3 minutes and you've had yours. I appreciate it. That's the question I leave you with. Is it really 00:21:03
worth it? Thank you. 00:21:06
Harkins. 00:21:13
This is not we're not gonna tolerate clapping and out outbreaks like that during the the meeting. So please just keep your 00:21:18
comments and your applause to yourself for now, please. 00:21:22
Listening to me. 00:21:27
My name is Jeanette Marcus. 00:21:30
I live on. 00:21:33
Darla and Earl's property at 197 Health Settle Mission Rd. 00:21:34
I'm going to make this easy on everybody. I'll be out in October. Not my choice. 00:21:38
But by others. 00:21:43
I cannot keep up with the Joneses since my camper is the smallest one. 00:21:45
And not the prettiest, so I give up. 00:21:49
I can't afford a big, fancy mobile home. 00:21:52
I thought I found my Piece of Heaven on 197 on 7 Mission Rd. Thank you. 00:21:55
Thank you. 00:22:01

Ohh yeah I'm disabled too, but I was saying that. 00:22:22
Ohh, not trying to take up too much of your time, but I sure don't want to get. 00:22:27
Put out on the street and put homeless or anything like that, it would be devastating for me and. 00:22:31
My girlfriend that we lived there and. 00:22:36
We're just trying to get along with the county. 00:22:39
If they pass a new Valencia County Zoning Ordinance. 00:22:41
I didn't know anything about the 800 square feet or. 00:22:45
The different living. 00:22:49
I guess, how would you say it? 00:22:53
Conditions at these different. 00:22:56
Houses there, some are bigger, some are smaller. 00:22:58
But well. 00:23:02
We all have issues with like supply chain shortages. I. 00:23:04
Worked all my life and worked hard, but it's mostly a lot of shortages and there's nothing I can really do about that and the 00:23:08
government. 00:23:11
I don't know if they're going to have another COVID-19 and. 00:23:15
Pandemic. 00:23:19
But hopefully not. So that's about all I got to say. I I just don't want to get kicked out of my home. I've been living there. 00:23:21
All my life. 00:23:27
Have a nice day. Thank you. God bless you. 00:23:29

Commissioners, I'm here to present a subject matter, not your endorsement, not your approval. 00:25:25
But to know that we're having a event regarding prayer at the heart, which is a national. 00:25:31
State, and now we're doing it 20, I mean 33 counties, 23 nations here in New Mexico called prayer at the heart. We're going to be 00:25:37
praying. 00:25:41
At the county fairgrounds on July the 1st. 00:25:46
And what is it all about this prayer? We need prayer. We all need prayer. We need God to intervene in our county. 00:25:49
In our state, and so we're here. 00:25:55
Like I say, to invite you all to participate if you so are inclined. 00:25:58
We're going to, it's going to be from 10:00 o'clock. 00:26:03
Through 4:00 o'clock. 00:26:05
On July the first, so I invite you. I'll leave flowers for you all, but I certainly, if I can pray for you, pray God speaks. 00:26:06
God's love be upon you, God's protection and God meeting the needs of all the people here in Jesus name. Thank you. 00:26:14
Ohh Sir, Mr. Montoya, did you have Flyers? You're gonna leave us? She said. 00:26:22
Well, you could just leave to dance with Danny here. 00:26:27
Thank you. 00:26:30
Thank you. 00:26:33
Thank you, thank you, thank you. 00:26:36
Ohh OK. 00:26:40
All right. We'll move on to item number 5, discussion on action items. Commissioners, is anything you want to bring to the table 00:26:42
tonight? 00:26:45
I didn't see your name on the list, Sir. 00:26:51
OK, let me just get you to. 00:26:56
Get your name on the list, so we have a record of that please. 00:26:59
And I'll give you your time. 00:27:02
Ship that, Sir. 00:27:03
So. 00:27:13
Thank you Sir. If you'll just Sir, if you'll just state your name and address for the record. 00:27:15
My name is Alfredo Gomez. I live on 6/22 and 1/2 Wisconsin out of Valletta, New Mexico. 00:27:21
I am currently the Vice Commander of the American Legion Outpost City One and also the Veteran Service Officer. 00:27:27
I was just recently addressed with the issue of. 00:27:32
Currently zoning issue that is going to be interrupting the lives of like quite a few individuals that include veterans. So as a 00:27:35
veteran service officer my concerns of opiate helping our veterans and our community is one of my highest priorities. 00:27:42
And so a few few items I want to just bring to the attention of the Council. 00:27:50
If you do choose to actually conduct and follow through with this zoning and and eradicate these individuals or have them move to 00:27:55
another location, is there going to be another means that's going to allow for these low income individuals to provide them a 00:28:00
suitable and a provable housing place for them to provide? 00:28:06
And also I understand that the current issue is that it's an RV. The issues with the RV. 00:28:11
And there's RV's. If you look up the the loan and the loan applications for an RV, they could be classified as permanent 00:28:16
residency. And the only thing that classifieds are qualifies for a permanent residency is a bathroom, a kitchen and a sleeping 00:28:22
space. And I believe all these qualify under these homes. 00:28:28
And no matter what type of home we live in, that is our home. 00:28:34
That is what we represent and we stand for. We earned, we we try to build up and make it our own peace and piece of land. 00:28:38
And also if the gentleman that owns the property and he's a sole proprietor and if he has no issues with these, what what gives it 00:28:45
safe for our government to come in and tell them that they can't do this as long as it was is within sanitations everything else 00:28:52
that is covering all the other, I mean for sizing the home by 50 feet by 50 yards. 00:28:59
You know, listening to the stories of these individuals, and I'm new to this topic, I'm, I'm not, I don't know all the details 00:29:06
honestly. My concern is you're going to be kicking out some veterans out of their home and I'm concerned about that. And I and I 00:29:11
promise you if such thing does occur, we will let people know who are the individuals that so decided such a thing for coming up 00:29:16
and coming elections. 00:29:21
Like, you know what? Are these truly the people that we want to be in charge of Our community, our county, and of our community 00:29:27
and our our our community. These are our people, all the people that live here and reside with us. As a veteran, we've stood up 00:29:31
and defended this nation for that flag, for this state. 00:29:36
I know we just want everybody to have their own personal right. 00:29:42
For their own personal view, the liberty and justice their own. 00:29:44
Choice. 00:29:48
And and that is what we defended as as veterans of our country and you're asking individuals not to live their life and kick them 00:29:49
out. 00:29:53
So again, I want to thank you again for your time for taking the time to listen to our. 00:29:57
Disputes and. 00:30:03
And hopefully you guys take to consideration all the different conversations that were spoken today. And I appreciate your time 00:30:05
today. Thank you, Council. Thank you. 00:30:09
OK. At this time, we'll go ahead and now move on to item number 5. 00:30:14
Again, discussion items. Commissioners, is there anything you wish to bring to table this evening? 00:30:19
Staff and Mr. Chairman, I'd like to have Mr. Silva come up, if you would. 00:30:26
Good afternoon, Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, thank you for your time today. I want to 1st apologize for not having this 00:30:33
presentation done earlier, but I just wanted to make sure that it was in fact a dream come true. 00:30:39
As you all know. 00:30:46
The Juvenile Justice Advisory Board has been something that. 00:30:47
It's been a difficult route to to navigate through. I'm happy to say that we have since. 00:30:51
Made it through the Muddy Waters and we are now in a solid position. We have an excellent working relationship with CYFD. Our 00:30:57
board is more interactive than ever. We have an enormous. 00:31:03
A push for a youth subcommittee. Everything is. 00:31:09

Mr. Chairman, Commissioners. 00:31:18

A little nervous, but thank you for allowing me to take this time out of your day. 00:32:04

Mr. *****. 00:43:12
Mr. Chairman, Members of the Commission. 00:43:14
Local IF5399 is a newly formed bargaining unit that was approved last year by the public employee. 00:43:17
Labor Relations Board in Albuquerque. 00:43:26
We commenced negotiations. 00:43:29
With the Approved Bargaining Team from both sides. 00:43:31
We have completed an entire contract. 00:43:34
With that also includes includes a raise that is consistent with our with our salary study and within the budget. 00:43:37
The entire contract is. 00:43:44
Very consistent with our. 00:43:47
Other union contracts and personnel policies. 00:43:49
Umm. 00:43:52
Except of course, it has specific provisions that are related to fire, which are are independent, which are different than you 00:43:54
know than most of the other employees. 00:43:58
I think it's a good contract and we worked well with them and I recommend approval. 00:44:02
If any questions. 00:44:07
There be no recommendation. 00:44:09

OK, item number 15. 00:44:45
Approval of an MOA with the Valencia County Deputy Sheriff's Association for payment of premium pay. 00:44:48
Mr. Noah. 00:44:53
Under Sheriff Nova. 00:44:55
Chairman, Commissioners, thank you guys for your time. 00:44:57
Last year. 00:45:00
House Bill 68 and 2022 passed the state. The governor signed it and that provided money to. 00:45:03
For law enforcement across the state for recruitment and retention efforts. 00:45:10
Valencia County was awarded $525,000 out of that grant over a three-year period. 00:45:14
Once the county did receive the first year's check for a total of $300,000. 00:45:21
In December of. 00:45:26
21st The Commission met and I presented a resolution to the Commission on how to spend that money. 00:45:28
Among those was hiring 4 deputies, hiring bonuses, referral stipend and a retention stipend. 00:45:35
The money has to be spent by the end of the fiscal year as of the end of this month. 00:45:41
And in that resolution I put that any unspent money out of that would be rolled into the stipend. 00:45:45
The MU in front of you is to distribute that to stipend out to the union members of the Sheriff's Office to. 00:45:51
So we can deplete that money and not have to give it back to the state. 00:45:58
Umm. 00:46:02
Just for your information, the state, I know Dave Patel worked with me a lot on trying to get this on what the requirements from 00:46:06
the state were to pay on this and. 00:46:10
Was very vague and difficult. 00:46:16
But it bottom line, it had to be spent on certified officers and not uncertified. 00:46:19
So being that being said, there would be 34. 00:46:26
Individuals from the Sheriff's Office receiving that money and 24 of them belonged to the union, that ten of them are non union 00:46:30
members. 00:46:33
Umm. 00:46:37
Working with Loretta on the numbers to cover the Medicare cost to the county. 00:46:38
There's a small difference that the county has to pick up, which is $3.69. 00:46:44
I'd rather wanted to round off and not have sense in there, so that's what the counties. 00:46:49
Difference The county has to pick up on this. 00:46:55
And the stipend amount to the deputies comes out to 7590 dollars. 00:46:58
Any questions on any of that questions? 00:47:08
Period. There is none. Is there a recommendation? 00:47:13
Mr. Chair, I like to make a motion to approve. 00:47:16
Second, you have a motion second for approval. Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:47:19
There be none. Commissioner Richard, you vote yes. Mission puzzle. Your vote yes. Commissioner Parking your vote yes, I vote yes 00:47:24
is approved. 00:47:26
Government commissioners, thank you. 00:47:29
You guys. 00:47:32
OK, item number 16. 00:47:45
Direction to staff regarding Mr. GCD Staging request of 1 Set 160 All Sarah Lucas Soonest, New Mexico. 00:47:47
Mr. Neff. 00:47:54
Mr. Chairman, Members of the Commission. 00:47:56
We received a request from the Mr. GCD. 00:47:58
For the temporary use of the property at 160 El Cerro Loop. 00:48:01
And the reason is to store materials. 00:48:06
As a staging area to improve levies. 00:48:09
And basically fill. You know they want to store fill dirt and rip wrap and use it as a staging area to. 00:48:14
Expedite the use in ditch, bank and levy repairs in the area. 00:48:21
And it's basically to reduce the. 00:48:25
Repairs intended and the risk of ditches breaking in for and flooding. 00:48:28
Of course we the county certainly wants to do everything it can to help out its residents and nobody wants to get flooded. So I I 00:48:33
I would recommend that we. 00:48:38
Authorize the use of this property as they requested. 00:48:43
Except with one caveat. They did send us an agreement. Their their form of agreement. 00:48:46
Which? 00:48:51
Is basically, I believe, designed for to send to a private property user. 00:48:52
And it does have a provision in there that requires the release of the RG CD upon execution, which is problematic for a county, 00:48:56
you know, for a government entity. It's really not a government to government agreement. 00:49:02
My suggestion would be that a motion would be in order to direct the county manager to approve the agreement. 00:49:09
Removing the problematic clause and and allowing them to use the property as they see fit at that point. 00:49:14
Questions Mr. *****. 00:49:20
There be none as a recommendation. 00:49:24
Chair. 00:49:26
Please, I'd like to make a motion to approve it as. 00:49:27
Adrian. 00:49:31
Advisors. 00:49:33
We have a motion for approval making the changes from legal. 00:49:34
Is there a second? 00:49:38
2nd. 00:49:39
The motion and 2nd. Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd. 00:49:40
There being none, Commissioners, in your vote yes, they should be your vote yes. Parking your vote yes I vote yes is approved as 00:49:43
amended. 00:49:46
OK. 00:49:51

And are there any closing comments from fellow commissioners? 00:50:07
Mr. Chairman, I know I'm not Commissioner, but Mr. Montoya should be right back with those signature pages. 00:50:10
And with that, we are adjourned. Just stick around, sign that document, then we'll be good. 00:50:17
Think of the. 00:50:21
