Yes, OK. Yeah. So we'll let you speak when we get to the zone change. So we'll we'll make sure that you have the opportunity at 00:04:44
that point, OK. There is nobody else. So we'll go ahead and pass that down. 00:04:48
OK. We'll move on to item number 5. This is discussion non action items. We have employed the month Mr. Montoya. 00:04:56
Good evening, Mr. Chairman. Members of the Commission, thank you once again for your support in our Employee of the Month program. 00:05:10
It's been real beneficial for us as far as, you know, recruitment and retention is concerned, and tonight's a prime example of 00:05:15
that. I think we're within 5 vacancies at the Sheriff's Office. The chief told me something like 3 vacancies, which is probably 00:05:21
the best we've done, you know. 00:05:27
In the last 10 years or so. So it's really good news for us. And this program is just one of the many things that we've been 00:05:33
doing. And once again, I'd just like to thank you guys for your support. And with that, I'm going to call up a few lieutenants, 00:05:39
Mr. Hall, our chief, Mr. Huron, and Lieutenant all the right there, Lieutenant, all the right there runs pretty much our 00:05:45
recruitment stuff. He's in charge of hiring, and one of their great candidates is our Employee of the Month. 00:05:51
Thank you. Thank you, Orlando. Thank you, everybody. 00:05:59
Sure. So. 00:06:04
Currently we are sending our new hires to the CNM Academy. That's a satellite Academy. Usually you got your DPS Santa Fe Academy. 00:06:07
We are currently sending to CNN Academy. They are currently at class 11. They're going to start class. They just they're going 00:06:14
about to start class 12 here in August. But what we wanted to do is recognize our newest deputy that we have. 00:06:22
Hired Shania Arndondo. 00:06:30
In my tenure here with the agency, nine years, we had not had a valedictorian graduate from either Academy. 00:06:34
And Shania did so very proud of her to do that. As you guys, well, probably most of you know, when you are valedictorian, you have 00:06:42
to give a speech. She had to give a speech in front of all her peers, 22 cadets, classmates, and she did very well. I want to 00:06:49
cover some of the course topics they teach that she was graded on, and that includes domestic violence, traffic enforcement, 00:06:56
investigation, crisis intervention, physical training, constitutional law, criminal investigations, law enforcement, one law 00:07:02
enforcement lab, patrol procedures. 00:07:09
Criminal law. 00:07:16
Her overall average was a 97.7, so she did really well. The other top honors include Top Gun, which is like Top Shot. 00:07:18
Pursuit, driving kind of things of that nature. However, valedictorian obviously is the highest echelon you can, you can receive. 00:07:29
And, and for that, we wanted to do something for Shania and, and, and that's why we're here. 00:07:35
If you want to say something, Commissioner, I'd just like to thank you guys for supporting this and HR for allowing us to continue 00:07:43
with this process. 00:07:46
Yeah. 00:07:51
Thank you. 00:07:59
Thank you. 00:08:03
Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you for for being part of our department and congratulations on your accomplishment so far. 00:08:04
And I see you going a lot further with the law enforcement and hopefully you'll be a member of our service department for a long 00:08:11
time and bring those talents and keep them here locally for us. Thank you, appreciate you. 00:08:18
OK, uh. 00:08:27
Along these the reports there was the annual Nako Conference, National Association of the Counties. This past week it was in Tampa 00:08:30
Bay, Florida. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend. I did participate somewhat via Zoom, but during that conference Valencia 00:08:38
County had a had an appointment to the Board of directors. This was a presidential appointment and it was appointed to our deputy 00:08:45
manager, Jonathan Aragon. And this just goes to show what a. 00:08:53
How involved he's been in Nico for for many, many years and not just as sitting on the sidelines. He's been very involved. He's 00:09:01
made a lot of contacts. He's brought a lot of this Nako information back to the county. It's a very professional organization. And 00:09:07
I don't know, Danny and I were talking earlier, I don't know if there's ever been a presidential appointment for anybody in the 00:09:14
state of New Mexico. You may be the first. But in either case, congratulations. That's quite an honor and we really are proud of 00:09:20
you for for what you've done. 00:09:26
And just your commitment to county government is incredible. So congratulations and thank you. And if you wish to say anything, 00:09:33
please. 00:09:36
I'll just thank you for the the. 00:09:42
The honor of. 00:09:45
Just following that it's it is pretty awesome to. 00:09:48
Have New Mexico on the map. When I first started with Nako, we were kind of we have term limits so we're not as fortunate as some 00:09:54
of the East Coast counties that have had commissioners or elected officials for 20 plus years. So it's really important for us to 00:10:01
keep that continuity going and and if I'm able to help do that, you know yourself as a new board member with Nako, I think that 00:10:08
was a really. 00:10:15
Big thing on on helping us get. 00:10:24
That appointment because they see the need for New Mexico to have a voice in echo and and if I could just help bring that up a 00:10:26
little more, I would really do it. I'm greatly going to do it. So thank you. Thank you again. Congratulations. OK under reports 00:10:34
also the county clerk's office had a recent recount on the treasurer's election, I believe, Mike. 00:10:42
FERC Milam I guess is what I should say if you'd like to just give a little report on that first place. Good afternoon, Mr. Chair 00:10:52
and Commissioners. We had a a recount on the Treasurer's race that we had back in June and our recount was done last week. The 00:11:00
recount numbers were still at the same numbers as they were on election night. We also had a post system auto check that they have 00:11:07
a auditing firm that gives us certain precincts and we have to cross reference our. 00:11:15
Precincts with their numbers and our numbers and everything matched out perfectly. So we did get through the post system monitor 00:11:23
check and also the recount with flying colors. That's all I have to say. Thank you. Thank you. 00:11:28
OK, Commissioners, anything else you any of you would like to bring out this evening? Chair, please, as a veteran? 00:11:35
It's great to see that the veterans are recognized. I. 00:11:44
Post 85, the VFW, we had a young lady who was a long resident of Valencia County, Tamara Long Archuleta. She passed away in a 00:11:50
Black Hawk helicopter and they renamed the VFW Post 85 after her couple weeks ago. And so it's, it's great to see that our 00:11:57
veterans are honored. And as of right now, she is the only female veteran to have a post named after her in New Mexico. So to her 00:12:04
and her family, I want to say thank you and congratulations. 00:12:11
Thank you bringing that up. Anything else, Commissioners? 00:12:19
Seth, is there anything you? 00:12:23
Mr. Chairman, I only have one item in our regularly scheduled next meeting would be August 7th. 00:12:25
And due to having to have a special meeting for our fiscal year closeout since we are closing the books on last year, because we 00:12:31
do our year starts in July and runs through June and we have some sensitive time sensitive business regarding the hospital. We'd 00:12:39
like to change that meeting from the 7th to the 30th, which will be the Tuesday prior if that works for everybody. So it'd be July 00:12:46
30th same time and we get both those items that. 00:12:54
Very time sensitive when you get both from taken care of. So would like to do that if we have the blessing of the Commission. 00:13:03
Commissioners, is there any issues with with cleaning that meeting? 00:13:07
Should be fine. Thank you, Danny. Thank you. Anything else? 00:13:13
OK. 00:13:17
Alrighty. So we'll go ahead and move on. Now to our item number six. This is a presentation the quarterly report from the 00:13:19
Extension office, Missy Arake. 00:13:23
Hello. 00:13:30
So that was a statewide event that all the kids got to come into and it was in Stanley, NM. We went to YGA, which is Youth 00:14:04
Getaway, which is a youth get, which is a youth leadership camp that is for 8/8 to 13 year olds and it is held in Glorietta. We 00:14:10
took about 25 youth to that and also I get to serve as the senior aged leadership adults. So I get to train kids that lead the 00:14:17
younger kids throughout the camp. And so that was really awesome. We had a lot of art. We had several of our kids selected from 00:14:24
our county and we got to teach them. 00:14:30
And they had a really great experience. Our state shoot was held in Raton, NM at the NRA Whittington Center. We had senior age 00:14:37
youth compete in that and archery shotgun, rifle, air rifle and muzzler loader. And for tagging, we tagged 66 beef, 30 dairy 00:14:45
heifers, 113 pigs, 49 sheep and 170 goats. That is up from last year. There's a lot of animals. Our fairgrounds have had some 00:14:53
improvements lately. And so I think this year is going to be a really good fair. So of course invite you to that. 00:15:00
We hosted Northern Livestock School here at Valencia County Fairgrounds, which is a lovely opportunity for our individuals. It's 00:15:09
called Northern Livestock School, so it's actually open to the whole entire state. We had over 90 kids be registered and come and 00:15:16
they learn about sheep, lambs, goats, and we added dairy goats this year. And we actually had Austin who was one of our officers. 00:15:22
He helped be a youth leader and helped youth learn about sheep. We also had Anne and Uriah who are FCS ambassadors and Anne is 00:15:28
also an officer. 00:15:35
We had a really great event. We had over 80 kids compete there, which was awesome. So we it was full. It was great. It was a 00:16:12
wonderful day. And that qualified them for district and state events. And so we had around 20 youth qualified to compete at 00:16:19
district shoot at the Albuquerque Range. That'll be archery, air rifle, shotgun, rifle. 00:16:26
Many of the kids went are here today and we went to Las Cruces, spent the whole week down there. It was awesome. Long, long days, 00:17:04
long nights, but it was very successful. Those were the main highlights of summer. I want to kind of talk about let our intern 00:17:10
talk and then Crystal, of course. So I'm going to allow Crystal to talk, not allow, but I'm have Crystal come up and she's going 00:17:15
to give some of her brief highlights and then our intern is Caitlin and she's going to talk and then we'll wrap up with our 00:17:21
officers. 00:17:27
Good evening. So I'm just going to highlight a few of our projects that I've taken care of over the summer. One is the election or 00:17:37
not the election, the selection of our FCS ambassador team, they're here tonight with me. Their goal was to emphasize the FCS, the 00:17:45
family consumer science in in 4H. They also had a goal of two community service projects. One they did was cookies for the nursing 00:17:54
homes and our Extension Association of New Mexico over in February. And then the other one was a food drive this summer. 00:18:03
Of snack packs which we delivered 66 packages, 20 of them came to our community. Unfortunately the rest of them we decided to take 00:18:13
to Ruidoso with a group of foragers that took some pay and feed over there after the fires. 00:18:21
They also will be doing a lot of work at our County Fair this year with all the indoor exhibits, setting up, tearing down and 00:18:30
completing their final community service project with an adopted shop on October 5th at Wolski Farms Tractor Supply. And then 00:18:36
another big thing that was completed over the summer, which happened yesterday, was our Young Chef's Class series. Over the last 00:18:43
eight weeks on Mondays and Tuesdays, I had about 14 youth, both fouratures and non fouratures that came to class. Learned about 00:18:50
food safety. 00:18:56
They kind of did a little menu for their parents and everything. And then back in May we had a rockets class, which I had 28 00:19:42
community members, both 4H and on 4H members. Again, we invited Doctor Mark to come down. He taught them about rockets, what it is 00:19:49
to be an engineer, what it is to be a rocket science as he calls it. They got to finally put together rockets. Toward the end of 00:19:57
the day, my ambassadors came to help them and then in our parking lot, thanks to. 00:20:04
Everybody that allowed us to relaunched all those rockets that day and they got to take the rocket home with them, which I've 00:20:13
found out some of our kids have relaunched after purchasing more motors. And finally, one of our big things was a Mediterranean 00:20:20
diet on a budget where I had 20 members from the community adults come with the help of some of my ambassadors. We taught them how 00:20:28
to basically buy Mediterranean healthy items on a budget using. 00:20:35
Different benefits from. 00:20:43
The farmers market to what's in season to buying frozen items. They had a full 30 minutes of just education and then the last hour 00:20:44
and a half they cooked for everybody, a sample menu of six different items. And then we sat together as a group in eight all those 00:20:51
samples, which was really wonderful. And everybody's looking forward to more cooking classes. 00:20:59
Hi, I'm Caitlin, I'm the 2024 summer intern for the Valencia County Extension office. I've had a lot of fun in the last two months 00:21:12
learning the insurance and outs behind the programs here and how they're run. I saw and helped with a lot of events like county 00:21:18
contest, the Young Chef series, livestock school, state conference, district contest, food preserving classes, and a lot more. 00:21:24
I'm super grateful for this opportunity and I'm happy to report this has been a very positive experience for me. Thank you. Thank 00:22:03
you. 00:22:06
We're excited. We're like Caitlin can work for us now. She still has a couple more years, but it's OK, we'll get her through it. 00:22:13
So thank you all. Also, our officers are going to come up. 00:22:18
And they're going to deliver an invitation to our dessert auction. Our dessert auction is next Thursday as registration starts at 00:22:23
5:30 and it's at SNJ Sport Sporting Goods. We'd love to see you guys. You just come hang out with the kids, come look at their 00:22:31
desserts. If you want to put in some raffle tickets or some you want to bid, we would be happy to see you there. 00:22:38
Sounds good. 00:22:47
We have another. 00:22:49
And I have some extra that I'll give to Danny and if anybody else wants one, please come and grab them. So thank you guys. Thank 00:22:52
you very much for another good report. I know you guys have been really, really busy, so we appreciate all you for the community. 00:22:57
So appreciate you. Thank you. Thank you. 00:23:02
Thank you, Sarah. 00:23:08
Yeah. 00:23:10
OK, Item number 7, fiscal year 24 CYFD Continuum grant final report. 00:23:13
Vivid. Good evening, Mr. Chairman. Commissioners, that's a tough act to follow, but I'm glad to see that the youth are so involved 00:23:36
in Valencia County. It's kind of leads us into this presentation. So as you gentlemen are aware, we have the CYFD agreement and we 00:23:43
just completed year four of that agreement. Christine's going to get into a little bit more detail, but we're very excited to 00:23:51
start on a new three-year venture with CYFD. This particular presentation is going to be discussing the. 00:23:58
The semiannual. 00:24:07
Update on expenditures and essentially what transpired with the board, the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board from June to December. 00:24:09
So before I introduce Christine, I did want to take a moment to introduce some of our youth subcommittee members. We have Isabella 00:24:17
Medina, Jacob Arginine, and Josiah Vallejos. So as we get to a particular spot within the presentation, they do have some items 00:24:25
that they'd like to distribute to gentlemen. So with that, I'd like to introduce Christine to start the presentation. 00:24:33
Thank you. 00:24:42
Good evening. How are you guys today? I'm not sure why it's not popping up on the screens, but I did share it. 00:24:45
I'm sorry, bear with me. 00:24:54
Are you able to see it on your screens? 00:25:05
OK. 00:25:09
I'm sorry this is like brand new to me. There's like different options. OK, let's try this one. 00:25:14
OK. I'm sorry for the technical difficulties, but I'll just run through it quickly. So this sorry, let me just introduce myself. 00:25:34
I'm Christine Adien. I am the continuum coordinator for the Valencia County under the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board grant. What 00:25:43
I'm supposed to do is make sure that the continuum receives programs for at risk youth. And so I was here in December and. 00:25:53
I shared with you all up to the point from July 1st to December. Now I'm going to share January 2024 to June 2024 as a program 00:26:03
expenditures. And then I also wanted to let you all know that part of this last fiscal year we purchased silicone wristbands and 00:26:10
magnetic buttons that are used subcommittee members will pass out to you. Now these are for community events that we host within 00:26:18
Glen Valenta County anywhere. 00:26:26
Anytime we have youth engagement involvement, we want the youth to engage with the members and pass out stuff that has Yousupp 00:26:34
committee. 00:26:40
Use subcommittee labels. 00:26:46
So for the next slide, we have the. 00:26:50
Excuse me, you subcommittee community events. We had one on March 2nd at the Lasunas High School Resource Fair. We had one on May 00:26:54
31st at the Valencia County Torch Run, the La Vida Family Expo, which was the 10th one on June 7th. So all of these events we do 00:27:01
provide our knickknacks that we've provided over the last two fiscal years. 00:27:09
And unfortunately you are unable to see the pictures that I provided for you all. We're working on it. 00:27:18
Maybe I'll go back. There we go. Here we go. We're getting them. OK. So maybe I should share differently. 00:27:25
OK, So then Lavilis Fountain Family Expo. We had the youth there. We were. We had a table and a tent. We were there for our all 00:27:41
day long, to be honest. We were there at 7:00 in the morning just to make sure that we get a good spot and we didn't leave until 00:27:49
close to 2:00. We had a lot of vendors there and there was a lot of community that was involved. We had a ******** and our youth 00:27:56
were engaged and they were able to win prizes. We had. 00:28:04
Ice Popsicles. 00:28:12
And candy and fruit snacks and gummies, all that good stuff. 00:28:13
So then the H2 Gala for H2 Academic Solutions. They have a Youth of the Year award every year and we decided to recognize our 00:28:19
youth member, Josiah Vallejos. He is 15 years old. He goes to school at Dreams Academy. He is a Future Farmers of America in that 00:28:26
chapter. He is a youth subcommittee, of course, the YDI team Court and YDI Teen Outreach program. He is. He has also taken 00:28:34
criminal justice courses at UNNBC, interning at a local law office. 00:28:41
And he is a member of the United Nations. So because of all of his involvement and achievements, we felt that it would be awesome 00:28:49
that he would be recognized at this event. 00:28:55
Which was an awesome event to go to. There was just different youth recognized at the gala. 00:29:01
So the next slide is the Opioid Remediation Collaborative. 00:29:09
For short ORC Shawna Hartley is a liaison for the Collaborative and. 00:29:14
Valencia County is one of seven that signed a joint powers agreement to form the collaborative. The total funding for the seven 00:29:22
counties is $195 million to remediate remediate the opioid epidemic. The reason why I'm bringing it up because our youth were 00:29:29
allowed the opportunity to create a flyer to. 00:29:36
Bring awareness to opioid and so the top three were picked. However, I'm not exactly sure which one was is hanging up in the 00:29:44
hallways of New Mexico schools. 00:29:50
So the slogan that we have here is save your brain too much to gain. So the top two are vertical and then we have another one that 00:29:57
is horizontal. And each of the little pieces were brought together by all of our youth subcommittee members. 00:30:05
Next, the fun stuff. So we did the These are the graphs for the monthly program and match expenditures from January 2024 to June 00:30:16
2024. 00:30:22
The blue represents the programming expenditure and the red represents the match expenditures. The next slide is showing the 00:30:29
entire year, the fiscal year in September, you see that the red is skyrocketing to almost $80,000. That is because our youth 00:30:36
subcommittee, I'm sorry, my excuse me, not the you subcommittee, the Attendance for Success subcommittee partnered with Belen 00:30:43
Schools to host attendance. 00:30:50
Resource Fair. 00:30:58
The families out there, it was a huge event. It was wonderful. 00:31:00
Umm, then I'm sorry. 00:31:05
So we have FY24, the fiscal year 24, we were awarded 600 and $468,769.70. We were, we are happy to say that we are reverting 00:31:09
$687.70. This includes a youth subcommittee funding, 15% program support, restorative justice programming and boys Council 00:31:18
sessions. 00:31:27
And for also in FY24, our match amount was $194,708 and we exceeded that amount by $97,450.77 for a total of $292,158.65 that were 00:31:38
used by Valencia County. 00:31:48
Here you see the survey comparisons from FY23 to FY24. These surveys are. 00:32:00
Provided by CYFD and are required that we fill them out, have the staff fill them out and have the youth fill them out at the end 00:32:08
of services. And FY23 we served 1266 youth and of those total we there were 724 youth that filled out 757. This fiscal year we 00:32:16
serve 782 youth with 395 filling out 426. 00:32:24
So this fiscal year we met a lot of the marks were 100% was completed, the program was satisfaction. 00:32:33
I pushed the button. I'm so sorry. 00:32:49
So we applied for a new three-year grant in December and the amount that we had applied for is 2,640,948 to cover the requested 00:32:53
programs of four sites and rack a day reporting center. Boffin Life skills One circle is the umbrella for Boys Council, Girls 00:33:00
circle and Unity Circle and restorative justice. 00:33:07
So we were actually awarded $2,178,657.60. So a total for each year would be $769,629 with a grant match. I'm sorry, a grant 00:33:16
amount of 549 dollars, $735 and the Valencia County would be responsible for 40% of that match, which is $219 and 894. I'm sorry, 00:33:26
I said that's so wrong, 219,000. 00:33:36
$894. 00:33:47
So again, we did apply for two new programs and we did get those two new programs a day, Reporting Center and Unity Circle. 00:33:49
The Day Reporting Center is a program that Valencia County has been wanting to have. 00:33:57
For the As long as I can remember, we want to partner with law enforcement agencies, juvenile probation and local school districts 00:34:05
serving youth 12 to 17 years of age. We will be The intention is to be open 365 days out of the year and to reflect a school day, 00:34:12
a work day for the parents especially. 00:34:18
For these youth, they are long term suspended, expelled, or who are looking to complete their GED or alternative school 00:34:26
equivalency. While the youth are at the DRC program, they're not only going to receive schooling, but also resources that help 00:34:33
them meet their goals. So JPRJPO referrals our priority and the the offenses include weapon offenses, violent outbursts, severe 00:34:40
substance misuse, suicide, ideation, behavior, health concerns. 00:34:47
And with this program, we hope to serve 60 youths in the fiscal year. 00:34:54
The Unity Circle is a new program. It is a program much like Boys Council and Girls Circle. However, it the content will 00:35:00
degenerate to allow for LGBTQ community to be involved. One session per week for 52 weeks and with a combination of Boys Council 00:35:07
and Girls Circle we hope to serve 90 youth. 00:35:15
Thank you so much for your time. I apologize for my mistakes and mishaps. My name is Christina and I am the Continuum coordinator 00:35:24

them individually, of course. First one item number 8 is a zone change 2024-029. Applicant is Dean The Hill. If there's anybody 00:35:55

going to speak on your. 00:36:06
Just go ahead and stand to be sworn in. 00:36:14
Do you swear, affirm, that this testimony you will give in this case will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the 00:36:20
truth, under the penalty of laws to help you God? 00:36:23
OK, Ryan, it's all yours. 00:36:29
Good evening, Chairman. Commissioners, for you this evening is a request for a zone change number 2024029. This is District 5 00:36:35
Planning and Zoning Commissioner Montoya Board of County Commissioners out of going. 00:36:40
I apologize. Those are both vacant seats. As soon as I said auto go and I realized I'm going to take that. Those are vacant. 00:36:49
Currently, both P&Z and Board of County Commissioners Dean V Hill has requested his own change from Rural Residential District 2R2 00:36:57
to Rural Residential District 1R1 to split the property into five lots. Legal description follows on the what is listed on the 00:37:04
agenda. And I do stand. Excuse me. This was presented in front of the PNZ Commission on April 23rd. 00:37:12
It was approved with a vote of recommended for approval with a vote of four to zero. And I do stand for any questions, if there's 00:37:20
any questions of Mr. Bucket. 00:37:24
Appearance there is done. We have the applicant here, Mr. B Hill. Is there anything you'd like to add to that? 00:37:31
Go ahead and come on up with it. 00:37:39
Any questions of the applicant, Mr. Vihil, Commissioners? 00:37:42
Here's the resemblance. We'll be making a decision on this after our executive session this evening. OK, thank you. Thank you. 00:37:47
OK. Item number 9, also zone change 2024-034. Applicant is Eric Hernandez. If there's anybody that's going to give any testimony 00:37:55
on this particular zone change, please stand so you can be sworn in. Mr. Chair, if there was somebody on the last item. 00:38:03
Go ahead and come back up. I'm sorry I didn't see you raise your hand. I apologize. Go ahead and come back up to the podium, 00:38:14
please. 00:38:17
Thank you for catching that. And they'll need to be sworn in. I don't think they stood for that. 00:38:22
OK, so go ahead and come back up to the podium and you'll need to be sworn in. 00:38:28
I. 00:38:42
OK, if you'll each state your name and address for the record please Anna Level I live at 256 Kirkman Rd. 00:38:47
Elizabeth Espinoza, 252 Kirfman Rd. 00:38:56
OK, is this. 00:39:01
Right, I was looking at the address now. 00:39:05
OK. So we'll be getting to you guys in a second. Was there somebody that wanted to speak on the zone change for Dean De Hill, the 00:39:07
previous one? We're neighbors, OK. 00:39:13
OK. And you can go ahead and move the microphone down a little bit so you can, yes. So we had questions about what it means to 00:39:19
move from RR1TO RR 2 and if that affects our property. 00:39:25
Mr. Baca, would you please come forward to answer that? 00:39:33
So Chairman, commissioners, so for a little clarification, it is the request is to go from RR2 to R1. What the big thing that the 00:39:41
requester is hoping to change here is the dwelling densities. The one in RR1 stands for one dwelling unit per acre. RR 2 is for 00:39:49
two dwelling units per acre. So they will excuse me, one dwelling unit per two acres. So with an RR one for, they will be able to 00:39:57
split their property down to a single acre. Whereas with RR 2, the smallest lot size would be two acres. 00:40:05
May stand for any additional questions. Did that answer your question? 00:40:13
Well, we just needed to know if that's going to affect anything to do with a well, sewers or any kind of utilities, livestock. 00:40:18
There'll be any changes that affect us on that. 00:40:28
The Chairman, commissioners, so for the difference there, the use permitted uses are going to basically be the same. It's just the 00:40:32
lot size will be the difference here in this situation. So there will be the dwelling density will change as well as the minimum 00:40:37
lot size. 00:40:42
As far as effect on your property, I don't know that we have that answer, Mr. *****. 00:40:47
I mean, Mr. Chairman, I certainly we can't advise on that as you're just, you're sitting as a judicial board. I mean, you can 00:40:54
review the evidence presented and make that determination for your, you know, on yourself, by yourself. But basically it, yeah, it 00:41:00
basically means that theoretically you'll have more neighbours because they'll be. 00:41:06
The lots will be smaller. That's really what's at the heart of it. 00:41:13
OK, since we don't have any say so on it basically certainly you have every right to if you did you let me ask, did you receive a 00:41:19
notice in the mail? OK, you certainly have a you have the right to advise the board of why you don't think that should happen. And 00:41:27
the applicant can ask questions of you and you can ask questions of the applicant pursuant to the the chairman's authorization and 00:41:34
you can you can say why you don't want that to happen, but that's you have every right to do that right now. 00:41:42
The road's gonna go with in and out that property. Is that so this is a for a zone change. You know, we're just changing the, the 00:41:50
zoning. That just means how it is, how it is legally put up. Now what how that happens, it'll you know, how the roads are 00:41:56
configured, all that sort of thing. That is a question for another day. We're just changing. They're just looking at changing the 00:42:02
zoning. So that would be another process that would not happen right now. This would just mean you're changing what is allowed on 00:42:08
that property. 00:42:13
OK, well my main concern is if that's going to affect anything to do with. 00:42:21
Water our whales or sewage and anything down the future as far as regulating any what kind of animals we can have or not as being 00:42:27
a smaller, I mean dividing the property of bringing more people in. That's all I needed to know. 00:42:36
I do believe Mr. Dances, all of those questions that you're having will be addressed when they apply for the permits for the use 00:42:48
of for their wells and septic. Is that correct? 00:42:52
Yes, I mean if depending on what processes they go through and and the subdivision application, they'll be. This is basically just 00:42:58
whether whether or not the the conditions. 00:43:03
The conditions require a zone change, which means, you know, of course, we we've discussed all the time, but you know, how many 00:43:09
similar zones are there in the area you know, is it changing? 00:43:14
Is it that sort of thing right? 00:43:20
OK. Thank you. 00:43:24
OK. Is there anybody else that wishes to speak on this before I move on to the next one? Mr. B Hill, is there anything you wish to 00:43:32
say at this time? 00:43:36
OK. I think we're good, Mr. Chair. Yes. Could Ryan bring up the map to so they can see where the other closest RR ones are so 00:43:42
these people can see it? 00:43:48
Account The highlighted property is in blue. 00:45:01
Or purple, that is the RR 2 districts and the nearest RR one would be here to the West, approximately 28 miles. 00:45:04
Answer your question. 00:45:20
Any other questions for me, if I might just to clarify, Ryan? 00:45:22
So the the nearest one. 00:45:27
It's right here. 00:45:32
That's the nearest R&R and it's the properties in blue. 00:45:34
Are all of. 00:45:43
Are all of those lots? What's going on with the other lots though, that it looks like they're smaller on the map? 00:45:45
It's a little subdivision off Miller Rd. correct? So Chairman, Commissioners, there are approximately 1 acre lots directly to the 00:46:26
West. These would be off of Merced Road and Manana Road. And then as well as some of the lots just South of this on Kirfman, those 00:46:33
are also one acre lots as well. Approximately. It's basically surrounded by one acre lots of South and West. Definitely is. East 00:46:39
is the highway and then N is, I believe the prison. 00:46:46
And what is, what is that? And what are the lots highlighted in green? 00:46:55
That less Mid Valley Airpark. 00:46:59
I'm sorry, which lots was that lots in green cross 3-4. So Chairman commissioners that would be part of the airpark. They are 00:47:03
zoned commercial one. Their lot sizes are a little different requirements on that. 00:47:10
Any other questions? 00:47:20
OK. Thank you, Mr. Brock. Thank you. 00:47:24
I'm going to go ahead and just stay up there. OK, we'll go. You'll start item number 9 now. 00:47:27
Zone Change 2024-034 Applicant Eric Hernandez, Is there anybody with us this evening that is going to give any testimony on this 00:47:34
particular zone change? If so, I'll need you to stand so you can be sworn in. 00:47:41
OK. 00:47:50
Not yet. They need to swear you in for this. 00:47:54
OK, Mr. Buck. 00:48:07
Or just move it. 00:48:12
Good evening, Chairman, Commissioners. 00:48:17
Before you this evening is as a request for Zone change number 2024034. Once again this is District 5. Both Planning and Zoning 00:48:20
and Board of County Commissioner seats are vacant currently. Eric Hernandez requests his own change from Rural Residential 00:48:28
district to RR 2 to Neighborhood Commercial District C1 with a conditional use to park semi trucks and trailers. Legal description 00:48:36
is listed on the agenda. This one was heard April 23rd. This was recommended to be denied with a vote of four to zero. 00:48:44
At that time for the meeting on the 23rd of April, there were two individuals in favor of the request, which were. 00:48:53
Some of the neighbors directly to the north and then we also had two in opposition. Some of their concerns had to do with the 00:49:01
safety by the additional vehicles and commercial vehicles entering and exiting that location and also the additional traffic 00:49:06
that's going to be with the commercial zoning and. 00:49:11
This is a, this isn't also one that we've been working on for a little while. They, this is brought to our attention because it 00:49:17
was tagged by code enforcement. They were already using it for this purpose. So we have tagged them and now they are working with 00:49:22
us to try to come into compliance. And that's what the request is here for today. And I stand for. Any questions, Commissioners, 00:49:27
Any questions, Mr. Buckley? 00:49:32
Not at this time and is the applicant. I did not see the applicant or any of the representatives today. OK. 00:49:41
So we have two people that want to speak on this, ma'am, if you go ahead and come forth. 00:49:48
Are you Sir? Are you together? 00:49:53
OK. 00:49:57
OK, you go ahead and speak first and then he could he could come up after again. State your name and address for the record, 00:49:58
please. Elizabeth Espinoza, 252 Kirfman Rd. Speaking to the microphone, please. Oh, sorry. Elizabeth Espinosa. We live at 252 00:50:03
Kirkman Rd. OK, and you did receive a letter? 00:50:09
There is a lot of traffic with the trucks and stuff and couple times. 00:50:17
We almost hit. So I was really concerned because I have small grandkids and you know, the dogs are always barking. I know that's 00:50:23
just annoyance in that part, but we. 00:50:28
Really don't want that around there because it's really a nice neighborhood, you know, but. 00:50:33
I don't know how you guys do this stuff so and just. 00:50:38
This is annoying. 00:50:44
For me, you know. 00:50:46
So I don't know what else. 00:50:48
You know what else it can, you know, contain? I'm nervous. I'm sorry. 00:50:51
So we just want the quiet neighborhood and they they should be in another area and they had been doing it for a while so. 00:50:58
I don't know. That's it. Thank you. Thank you very much, Sir. 00:51:08
And you'll also state your name and address for the record. 00:51:18
My name is Rex Level. I live at 256 Kirkman Rd. OK. And you did receive a certified letter regarding the zone change? Did you 00:51:22
receive a letter regarding? Yes. Thank you. Go ahead. 00:51:27
A concern I have is. 00:51:35
Doing a maintenance on sometimes they do they have done maintenance on that property. You know chemicals, you know you're it's a 00:51:39
diesel trucks diesel and. 00:51:45
Transmission fluid, any other things for a vehicle, if they have a spill there, it's going directly into the dirt. There's no 00:51:52
asphalt or or concrete or anything. 00:51:59
Also it's. 00:52:07
The noise, sometimes it's pretty loud when they come in and they Jake break and do stuff, so that's the concerns I had. 00:52:09
It's a quiet neighborhood. We like to keep it quiet. 00:52:22
And there are children around there. There's quite a few that go to school there. 00:52:26
That go to elementary school. 00:52:32
Not high school. They're elementary kids. And. 00:52:34
Though those were our concerns in our neighborhood that I heard from other people. 00:52:39
So I just needed those addressed. 00:52:47
OK. 00:52:52
Thank you very much. Thank you, Chair. Yes, Sir. Sir, Commissioner has a question for you since the applicants not here. 00:52:53
It's several there's. 00:53:03
**** quite a few. 00:53:06
It's not just one. 00:53:08
No, no, it's a multiple trucks. I can count 1. 00:53:10
Two trailers that have their mobile homes that the the the tractor, their tractor trailers so the tractor pulls up, which is a 00:53:18
semi truck it pulls up and then they they have a bunch of trailers that they parked there and at times I see there's. 00:53:28
Up to 6-7. 00:53:39
Trucks and trailers there. 00:53:42
There's quite a few. It's not. It's not just one guy, just not one guy driving in and out. 00:53:45
Any other questions? 00:53:50
Thank you, Sir. 00:53:54
Thank you, Mr. Bucket. 00:53:55
Does this request fall within the guidelines of the Comprehensive Plan? 00:54:01
So, Chairman, Commissioners. 00:54:04
This one, it's, it's kind of a tougher 1 to save on this. It's not part of a priority growth corridor. It's it is on a state 00:54:07
highway. So it does provide some access to good services that the community does request through the through the comprehensive 00:54:13
plan. However, it doesn't fit into a priority growth corridor, priority growth region. So there are some things that do fit, some 00:54:19
things that might not quite fit exactly. 00:54:25
Very good Commissioners. Any questions, Mr. Buckner? 00:54:33
Mr. Chairman, of course we'd like to see the map one, but two, just confirmation did the applicant. 00:54:37
Receive actual or or or legal notice that this meeting was happening. For the record. So chairman, Commissioners, they did receive 00:54:45
the certified letter. 00:54:51
I don't have my my certified letters the the copy of that for the receipt, but I can verify that if you'd like. But we did send to 00:55:04
the applicant as well as all the residents within 300 feet of the property. 00:55:10
OK. But did you verify it already when you already looked? Yeah, I did. I did look at that and it was, it was confirmed receipts. 00:55:18
That's correct. OK, thank you. 00:55:22
Anything else, Commissioners? 00:55:30
Just for clarification one more time, the applicant is not with us this evening, correct? I have not seen the applicant or any 00:55:32
representatives this evening. OK, very good. This would also be making a decision after our executive session. 00:55:38
OK. Item number 10 also zone change 2024-052I. 00:55:45
This is a zone change applicant Elizabeth Steinke. Mr. Baca, would you go ahead and present, please? 00:55:53
And if there's anybody that's going to give any testimony on this zone change, I would ask that you please stand at this time to 00:56:02
be sworn in. 00:56:04
Yes, I do. 00:56:18
And so Chairman, Commissioners, I just wanted to provide a little clarification on that last question. I was able to verify Eric 00:56:22
Hernandez did receive his notice of public of public hearing today. And so this evening before you as a request for the zone 00:56:30
change number 2024052 District 4 PNZ Commissioner sublet Board of County Commissioners Bozell Elizabeth Stanky requests a zone 00:56:38
change from rural residential district to RR 2 to agricultural preservation AP to operate a micro dairy. 00:56:46
Legal description is listed in the agenda. This case. This was heard on May the 28th and it was recommended for approval with a 00:56:55
vote of four to zero I. 00:57:00
And today the applicant did provide a little bit more additional information for some questions that were brought up during the 00:57:06
PNC meeting. She has provided us with a map showing the water rights that she currently does hold. And I believe she also just 00:57:11
mentioned something that she does have some of her. 00:57:16
New Mexico Environmental Department discharge statements and stuff, so she would like to possibly present those to you as well 00:57:21
this evening as further proof of her intentions with the property. 00:57:25
Nice point for any questions, Any questions, Mr. Baca? 00:57:31
I believe we have the applicants here with us this evening. 00:57:35
If you go ahead and come forward and state your name and address for the record, please. 00:57:37
Good afternoon, chairman and Commissioners. My name is Elizabeth Stanky and I live at 9 Guillema Lane, Belina, New Mexico 87002. 00:57:42
And as the applicant, you did receive notice, legal notice of the hearing tonight? Yes, it is. Yeah, go ahead. I would just like 00:57:49
to present to commissioners the letter from New Mexico Environmental Department and the process of getting our Grade A dairy 00:57:55
certification. There are several steps we have to go through as far as making sure they won't have any impacts on the environment. 00:58:00
We have a very small herd of goats. 00:58:05
I'm sorry I had to say thank you. 00:58:43
Questions. Commissioners for sure, please. So with that discharge permit through your barns and stuff, you won't have you just 00:58:46
take the. 00:58:49
Get some of that compaction down. 00:59:26
Increase the water and water infiltration in the soil and hopefully make it a lot less water to be able to water the soil. So in 00:59:28
five years we'll have a much better piece of land for everyone to enjoy as well As for our goats to enjoy. 00:59:33
Any other questions, Commissioners? 00:59:41
Mr. Chair, with the with the goats, what are the requirements? Are they going to have to have a special conditional use if they 00:59:43
get a bigger herd? Are you planning on getting any kind of bigger herd or anything like that? Because we're, it's just my husband 00:59:47
and I were very small, so. 00:59:51
Thank you. 01:00:26
And those letters that she brought with you, you need copies of those, or have you received copies, right? 01:00:27
For the discharge part, that one we will look at if approved, we'll start looking into that during the site design review as well. 01:00:34
Good enough. 01:00:38
OK. Commissioners, any other questions? 01:00:42
OK, here's your sensor. Where are you going to speak also? 01:00:46
Again, if you'll just state your name and address for the record, same address for my wife and you know. 01:00:50
Anything else you want to ask me? Is there anything you wish to share with us? He's got everything, OK? 01:00:57
OK. Thank you very much. 01:01:03
OK. We will be making a decision on this zone change also after our executive session. OK, lesson change, this is an appeal 01:01:06
2024-080 Mr. Baca. 01:01:13
Good evening again, Chairman, Commissioners. 01:01:25
Before you this evening is a request to appeal #2024 Zero Dash 8, this is District 3 PNC Commission, Moran Board of County 01:01:27
Commissioner Sparkman. 01:01:31
Nolan Petrie requested an appeal of Valencia County Planning and Zoning Commission's denial of a 40 foot variance. This was 01:01:37
variance number 2024051. This is a variance to the set back requirement for an accessory structure and you in order to build an 01:01:42
auxiliary shop. 01:01:48
The legal description follows on the agenda and this was heard on May 28th and at that time it was was denied with a vote of three 01:01:54
to zero. 01:01:59
And for the for that. 01:02:06
Some of the reasoning was that it wasn't shown to be a hardship or that there weren't other options for the applicant. And so that 01:02:09
was kind of the basis of that denial. And I stand for any questions, any questions of Mr. Bucker. 01:02:15
There's none at this time. If there's anybody that's going to give any testimony on this, I would ask that you please stand at 01:02:24
this time and so you can be sworn in. 01:02:28
Sir, are you the applicant? 01:02:46
OK, please come forward and for the record, please state your name and address. 01:02:48
Good afternoon, Chairman. Commissioners, I'm Nolan Petrie. My address is 40 Venetaria Circle, Belen, NM 87002. 01:02:57
And I'm here, one of the things that one of the reasons it was also denied was they asked me in the meeting if I had a home 01:03:08
occupancy permit and I said I didn't because I didn't recognize that. And when I went to apply for it, I found out I did have it 01:03:14
after all, it was part of my business license. 01:03:21
I just forgotten what all it included, so that was one of the reasons it was denied. 01:03:28
And since I was always in compliance, I'm asking. 01:03:35
That's one reason I was, I'm appealing the decision of the Planning and Zoning Commission, but I'm here for any questions if you 01:03:39
have them. OK. 01:03:44
Any questions of Mr. Petrie? 01:03:49
You have one for Mr. Buck, if you don't mind, Certainly. 01:03:53
So what do you have all the reasons why they decided to deny this change? 01:03:58
So Chairman, commissioners, based on the review requirements for a variance, what they determined was that this was not considered 01:04:04
a hardship, that there were other options for locations that he could place this. The the use of the structure was discussed 01:04:10
during the planning and zoning meeting. The use was going to be used to store some cement equipment for a construction company or 01:04:16
excuse me, for a home occupation. 01:04:22
So when that was brought up, there were some questions to verify whether or not the business registration was in place, that he 01:04:29
did have the proper home occupation registration. So during that time there was a little confusion. I don't believe Mr. Petrie, 01:04:35
just the wording of it, I think got him a little confused on that. I don't. The Commission did not state that that was a reason 01:04:40
for their denial at any point, but it did get brought up during the meeting. 01:04:46
Zaheer, thank you. 01:04:53
Mr. *****? Yes, Mr. Chairman. 01:04:55
And for the applicant, of course, or the appellant in this situation, since this is. 01:04:58
I'd like to run through the the criteria for a variance and then maybe you could speak to why why these would apply to you to 01:05:03
inform the board. 01:05:06
Basically, one special conditions and circumstances exist which are peculiar to the land, building or structure. The granting 01:05:12
would be in the public interest. 01:05:17
The variance would result in a minimal detriment to the vicinity. 01:05:24
The variance requested is the minimum variance that would make it possible. 01:05:28
The special conditions and circumstances. 01:05:33
On which the application is based do not result from negligent or knowing violations of the zoning code and it wouldn't violate 01:05:36
state environmental regulations. So I can read back any of those if you want. But really the most important I think that needs to 01:05:41
be spoken to are what special circumstances exist which are peculiar to your land, building or structure that require a variance 01:05:47
other than following the regular law. 01:05:53
Are you asking me to answer them? I'm asking you to yes, Sir, to explain to the Commission. 01:06:00
Part of the reason is to facilitate. 01:06:06
Vehicle traffic and trailer parking on my property. 01:06:09
It will keep it over against the. 01:06:14
Property line Another thing that's peculiar about my property is that we're basically at the end of the road up against the BNSF 01:06:17
Railway, so there's very little traffic for. 01:06:23
No traffic by my place. 01:06:29
So as far as. 01:06:32
It really impacts very, very few people. I do have one neighbor. He was going to send an e-mail of his approval. 01:06:35
Of this I don't know if he sent it or not. He told me he was going to. 01:06:43
OK, he might have forgotten. 01:06:49
But he isn't. He is in favor of it. 01:06:51
Anything else, Commissioners? Mr. Chair, just a quick question for the applicant. I see your this site plan part of this. 01:06:59
Where is the entrance to your property? Is it on the material circle or on Las Vegas Rd. At this time it is on Las Boregas. Las 01:07:09
Boregas is maintained by the county. Vena 30 is not. 01:07:15
So this our address has been a Teriya, but since Las Bodegas is maintained, that's where we come in off of. 01:07:23
Anything else, commissioners? Miss Richardson, Anything else? 01:07:37
Richard, was there anything else? Are you still studying that I'm good. Are you sure? 01:07:59
Take some time if you need to look it over. 01:08:05
OK. 01:08:08
Very good. 01:08:10
OK. And I don't believe there's anybody else that was going to give any testimony on this appeal. 01:08:12
Mr. Buck, is there anything else for me? 01:08:18
OK, very good. We'll make a decision on this after our executive session also. 01:08:20
OK. At this time, we're going to go ahead and move on into our action items. At this time, I need a motion to adjourn as Board of 01:08:26
County Commissioners reconvene as indigent board, please. So moved. 01:08:31

May 8th through June 30th, 2024 in the amount of $8,405,590.49. That's a lot of money to spend in two months. 01:11:33
I recommend approval of this item and stand for any questions you may have. Any questions of Miss Trujillo? 01:11:46
There be none as a recommendation. 01:11:56
Sure, I'd like to make a motion to approve. 01:11:58
2nd I have a motion and a second for approval. Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 01:12:00
There be none, Commissioner Rich, in your vote, yes, Mr. Bazaar, vote yes, Mr. Spark, in your vote yes. Yes, it's approved. 01:12:04
OK. So we'll get that signed, clerk. We'll get that presented for signature before the meeting is over, OK. 01:12:59
OK. 01:13:10
Thank you, Dan. 01:13:20
OK, Item 14, consider consideration of resolution state bars. Mr. Hill. Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, this state bars that I am 01:13:44
presenting to you today is in art. In preparation for fiscal year and reporting to the Department of Finance, we are not allowed 01:13:51
by state statute to report any negative budget balances within our final fiscal year end reporting. So we do have to take care of 01:13:59
everything that we overspend slightly from the budget. 01:14:07
This is what this will do and also there are. 01:14:15
Or three items in which we needed to, I'm sorry, what 345 items in which we needed to? 01:14:19
Temporarily loan money to grant funds. 01:14:27
In order not to report a negative balance at the end of the fiscal year. So we've requested reimbursement on on this grants we you 01:14:35
know spend the money and they are in a reimbursable reimbursement has been requested, but we did not receive the reimbursement 01:14:41
prior to fiscal year end. 01:14:46
So we borrow from the general fund, or in one of the cases we borrow from another grant within the same state fund. 01:14:52
To in order not to report a negative balance and as soon as we get that reimbursement in July, we then put the money back into the 01:15:02
to the general fund. 01:15:08
OK. Any questions of Mr. Hu? 01:15:16
Mr. Chair, please, when we borrow money from 1 grant to another, does that cannot affect? 01:15:19
The reporting, I mean, is it better just to borrow it from the general fund than compared to 1 grant to another? Mr. Chairman, 01:15:25
Commissioner Bozell, normally over the years we borrowed from the general Fund all the time. However, lately some of the grants 01:15:33
give us 100% of the money up front, and reporting to the state is a little different than our funds. So, for instance, all the 01:15:41
capital appropriations we get, we report all of them under one state fund. 01:15:49
They're all in there. So if we got additional, if we got the full amount of the grant, if we got the money up front, there's 01:15:57
always enough to cover those ones that have a negative balance on our books. It doesn't have one at the state level. It does on 01:16:05
our book. So we just do that temporary transfer or temporary loan until we get that money back. It it's just a operational 01:16:12
procedure. It doesn't cost any issues. I guess my question would be, would we ever get in trouble for? 01:16:20
Or if they say we're trying to. 01:16:28
Misused funds, even though it's paying one grant to another grant. Would it, Would it, Mr. Chairman, Commissioner Bezel, no, we 01:16:33
will not. No, as if it's on a temporary like one month basis that that's not an issue. If we're going to do it long term, then 01:16:40
then I do need to get that approval from them, if I may. It's easier for accounting purposes too, right? It is much easier for 01:16:48
accounting purposes to do it internally within the state. The same state fund them from other funds and the state allows again. 01:16:55
We're not getting in trouble later on for for. 01:17:03
I understand that's some of the books. 01:17:07
And yes, Mr. Chairman, Commissioner Bozell, yes, if I was going to go from 1/4 to another with that temporary loan, then it would 01:17:14
become an issue. But if we take care of it within one quarter, it's not an issue. OK, thank you. Any other questions? 01:17:22
There be none is our recommendation. Please, Sharon, I'd like to make a motion to approve second for approval. Any discussion on 01:17:32
the motion of the 2nd? 01:17:36
They're being done. Commissioner, Vote Commissioner Pizzelli, vote. Commissioner Spark in your vote Yes. I vote yes as approved. 01:17:41
Mr. Chairman and Commissioner, is this resolution is 2024 Dash 41. 01:17:45
OK, Item 15, consideration of resolution. Local bars. Mr. Hill. Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, as with the state bars, this local 01:18:09
bars that I brought before you are to address negative budget balances within the fund itself. So the money is not involved. It 01:18:17
doesn't involve the transferring of money. It's all within the same fund. It's just moving from one account to another within the 01:18:25
same fund. This requires your approval. It does not need to go to Department of Finance Borough. 01:18:33
Any questions, Mr. Hill? 01:18:43
There'd be none. As a recommendation, please, Mr. Chair, I'd like to make the motion to approve. Second, we have a motion and a 01:18:46
second. Any discussion on the motion of the second? There being none, Miss Rich, in your vote, Commissioner Sparkling, your vote 01:18:53
yes is approved. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Commissioners, this resolution is 2024, Dash 42. 01:18:59
OK, item 16, acceptance to be added to the county maintained list. Benavides, Good evening Chairman. Commissioners, we received a 01:19:28
a petition requesting Kaya Fort to be added to the county maintain list. This is located in District 4. We do have the residents 01:19:35
here for any questions they are requesting to be part of benefit all the current residents on California. Parts of the road are 01:19:43
also impassable especially after rainfall. 01:19:50
That is the comment from the residents. Again, they're here for any questions. I do recommend approval and stand for any questions 01:19:58
as well any questions of Miss Benavides. They're also requesting for the improvements to be waived just as any other Rd. request 01:20:02
that we get in. 01:20:07
OK. 01:20:13
And that is your recommendation also, yes, right now we won't do any improvements other probably than just grading and bringing 01:20:15
them some dirt material just to bring it to the best we can for now, very good. 01:20:21
Any questions of Miss Benavides? 01:20:27
We have a couple of people with us tonight that live on the road is there. Would you like to address us? 01:20:30
You'll just state your name for the record to each of you when you speak. Linda Carlisle, 6 Calle Huerta, Belen, NM 87002. 01:20:40
OK. Stephanie Perales, 10 call Forte, Belen, NM 87002, OK. 01:20:50
Go ahead. I think our main concern is how bad the road actually is. I know when we had talked to Miss Benavidez Lindas done most 01:20:57
of that communication, but. 01:21:04
It's bad. It's a lot of the area is mainly in the past we've had high traffic of 18 Wheelers and we still have that. One of our 01:21:12
neighbors drives home nightly so he brings that and my husband and I personally in front of our property. 01:21:20
It's, it's the I guess the holes are, I have pictures I brought are very, very deep. And so we've watched cars bottom out in that 01:21:29
area. And then if we try to fix it once the storm comes in, which I know we don't get very often, but it washes it completely out. 01:21:37
So it's unpassable. A lot of people don't even know that those. 01:21:44
Holes, I guess you would say are even there. So we we're just grateful if you if it is accepted because. 01:21:54
We definitely need it. Our cars are not doing well either. It's it's bad and we were kind of told we were left in the the middle 01:22:02
like the where there's no back and forth. So this is our only option because nobody can afford to take care of the whole Rd. 01:22:11
Very good. OK. 01:22:22
Do you have anything you want to add to that? I'm the same as what she said. There's area in front of her house and a little 01:22:24
farther down where there's a empty lot and people are going around the holes and going into there and it's become more wider. And 01:22:31
it's really even in not the rain. It's so rutted. You can't really drive down. The people that live at the other end, you know, 01:22:37
they come down, but it's must be really hard. I live further up, but it must be really hard for them to try to dodge all those 01:22:43
holes. 01:22:49
Russ well, thank you for sharing your concerns with us. We appreciate that. 01:22:57
I just have one other question. I know you said it in the beginning that right now the process is you guys will bring in dirt I 01:23:01
guess and, and great. And then in the future it would qualify for if we get money for paving or base course or anything like that. 01:23:09
But for right now it'll just be maintaining it. 01:23:16
OK, Commissioners, we have that request for the recommendation from our Public Works Director to add this road to the county 01:23:24
maintain list. 01:23:28
Any questions of Miss Benavides, Mr. Chair, please? Currently this is a This is a private road now that it's a public Rd. but it's 01:23:32
not county maintained. 01:23:36
Any other questions? 01:23:45
Chair, please be about $12,000 for you to just bring the dirt in. Yeah, it will bring it in from our pit, but that's just an 01:23:47
average of what it would cost the county, yes. 01:23:52
And getting getting ready to get me into monsoon season. When do you think if it were accepted that you could start, I would have 01:23:57
to get with Louie. He is working on other projects now, but I. 01:24:03
I could get with him and then get back with you. Just depends on his schedule. Yeah. 01:24:10
But do you think this year, next year? Oh no, it would probably be done within a month or two at least to bring in the dirt and 01:24:14
stuff and put in our routine grading list. 01:24:18
Any other questions, Miss Benavides? 01:24:24
There be none. It's a recognition, Mr. Chair, you'd like to make a motion to approve and accept this road Second. 01:24:28
Have a motion second for approval. Any discussion on the motion of the second There being none, Commissioner, it's in your vote. 01:24:33
Fisher bizarre. Your vote yes. Fisher sparks on your vote yes, vote yes. 01:24:38

Mr. Chairs, you're signing that? I'd just like to make a comment about the program this year. 01:32:56
We did. We had fifty kids around the building and. 01:33:02
You'd think bunch eighteen 1718 year olds would be messing around or whatever. They really worked hard. They got a lot of things 01:33:06
done in many of the offices such as filing, and actually clean up some of our director's desks pretty nicely. So they really 01:33:13
worked hard. I think it's a worthwhile program. 01:33:20
And all the coordinators are very happy with the production of the students. And obviously we saw the the GAL from the extension 01:33:28
office earlier. They're just they're making career. 01:33:35
They're potentially making career choices based off this couple week program that they're making here going into county government 01:33:41
or or the office that they're they're filling in. And so I think it's a very successful program. I hope we continue in the future. 01:33:48

Good evening, Mr. Chairman. Members of the Commission, thank you once again for your support in our Employee of the Month program. 00:05:10
It's been real beneficial for us as far as, you know, recruitment and retention is concerned, and tonight's a prime example of 00:05:15
that. I think we're within 5 vacancies at the Sheriff's Office. The chief told me something like 3 vacancies, which is probably 00:05:21
the best we've done, you know. 00:05:27
In the last 10 years or so. So it's really good news for us. And this program is just one of the many things that we've been 00:05:33
doing. And once again, I'd just like to thank you guys for your support. And with that, I'm going to call up a few lieutenants, 00:05:39
Mr. Hall, our chief, Mr. Huron, and Lieutenant all the right there, Lieutenant, all the right there runs pretty much our 00:05:45
recruitment stuff. He's in charge of hiring, and one of their great candidates is our Employee of the Month. 00:05:51
Thank you. Thank you, Orlando. Thank you, everybody. 00:05:59
Sure. So. 00:06:04
Currently we are sending our new hires to the CNM Academy. That's a satellite Academy. Usually you got your DPS Santa Fe Academy. 00:06:07
We are currently sending to CNN Academy. They are currently at class 11. They're going to start class. They just they're going 00:06:14
about to start class 12 here in August. But what we wanted to do is recognize our newest deputy that we have. 00:06:22
Hired Shania Arndondo. 00:06:30
In my tenure here with the agency, nine years, we had not had a valedictorian graduate from either Academy. 00:06:34
And Shania did so very proud of her to do that. As you guys, well, probably most of you know, when you are valedictorian, you have 00:06:42
to give a speech. She had to give a speech in front of all her peers, 22 cadets, classmates, and she did very well. I want to 00:06:49
cover some of the course topics they teach that she was graded on, and that includes domestic violence, traffic enforcement, 00:06:56
investigation, crisis intervention, physical training, constitutional law, criminal investigations, law enforcement, one law 00:07:02
enforcement lab, patrol procedures. 00:07:09
Criminal law. 00:07:16
Her overall average was a 97.7, so she did really well. The other top honors include Top Gun, which is like Top Shot. 00:07:18
Pursuit, driving kind of things of that nature. However, valedictorian obviously is the highest echelon you can, you can receive. 00:07:29
And, and for that, we wanted to do something for Shania and, and, and that's why we're here. 00:07:35
If you want to say something, Commissioner, I'd just like to thank you guys for supporting this and HR for allowing us to continue 00:07:43
with this process. 00:07:46
Yeah. 00:07:51
Thank you. 00:07:59
Thank you. 00:08:03
Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you for for being part of our department and congratulations on your accomplishment so far. 00:08:04
And I see you going a lot further with the law enforcement and hopefully you'll be a member of our service department for a long 00:08:11
time and bring those talents and keep them here locally for us. Thank you, appreciate you. 00:08:18
OK, uh. 00:08:27
Along these the reports there was the annual Nako Conference, National Association of the Counties. This past week it was in Tampa 00:08:30
Bay, Florida. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend. I did participate somewhat via Zoom, but during that conference Valencia 00:08:38
County had a had an appointment to the Board of directors. This was a presidential appointment and it was appointed to our deputy 00:08:45
manager, Jonathan Aragon. And this just goes to show what a. 00:08:53
How involved he's been in Nico for for many, many years and not just as sitting on the sidelines. He's been very involved. He's 00:09:01
made a lot of contacts. He's brought a lot of this Nako information back to the county. It's a very professional organization. And 00:09:07
I don't know, Danny and I were talking earlier, I don't know if there's ever been a presidential appointment for anybody in the 00:09:14
state of New Mexico. You may be the first. But in either case, congratulations. That's quite an honor and we really are proud of 00:09:20
you for for what you've done. 00:09:26
And just your commitment to county government is incredible. So congratulations and thank you. And if you wish to say anything, 00:09:33
please. 00:09:36
I'll just thank you for the the. 00:09:42
The honor of. 00:09:45
Just following that it's it is pretty awesome to. 00:09:48
Have New Mexico on the map. When I first started with Nako, we were kind of we have term limits so we're not as fortunate as some 00:09:54
of the East Coast counties that have had commissioners or elected officials for 20 plus years. So it's really important for us to 00:10:01
keep that continuity going and and if I'm able to help do that, you know yourself as a new board member with Nako, I think that 00:10:08
was a really. 00:10:15
Big thing on on helping us get. 00:10:24
That appointment because they see the need for New Mexico to have a voice in echo and and if I could just help bring that up a 00:10:26
little more, I would really do it. I'm greatly going to do it. So thank you. Thank you again. Congratulations. OK under reports 00:10:34
also the county clerk's office had a recent recount on the treasurer's election, I believe, Mike. 00:10:42
FERC Milam I guess is what I should say if you'd like to just give a little report on that first place. Good afternoon, Mr. Chair 00:10:52
and Commissioners. We had a a recount on the Treasurer's race that we had back in June and our recount was done last week. The 00:11:00
recount numbers were still at the same numbers as they were on election night. We also had a post system auto check that they have 00:11:07
a auditing firm that gives us certain precincts and we have to cross reference our. 00:11:15
Precincts with their numbers and our numbers and everything matched out perfectly. So we did get through the post system monitor 00:11:23
check and also the recount with flying colors. That's all I have to say. Thank you. Thank you. 00:11:28
OK, Commissioners, anything else you any of you would like to bring out this evening? Chair, please, as a veteran? 00:11:35
It's great to see that the veterans are recognized. I. 00:11:44
Post 85, the VFW, we had a young lady who was a long resident of Valencia County, Tamara Long Archuleta. She passed away in a 00:11:50
Black Hawk helicopter and they renamed the VFW Post 85 after her couple weeks ago. And so it's, it's great to see that our 00:11:57
veterans are honored. And as of right now, she is the only female veteran to have a post named after her in New Mexico. So to her 00:12:04
and her family, I want to say thank you and congratulations. 00:12:11
Thank you bringing that up. Anything else, Commissioners? 00:12:19
Seth, is there anything you? 00:12:23
Mr. Chairman, I only have one item in our regularly scheduled next meeting would be August 7th. 00:12:25
And due to having to have a special meeting for our fiscal year closeout since we are closing the books on last year, because we 00:12:31
do our year starts in July and runs through June and we have some sensitive time sensitive business regarding the hospital. We'd 00:12:39
like to change that meeting from the 7th to the 30th, which will be the Tuesday prior if that works for everybody. So it'd be July 00:12:46
30th same time and we get both those items that. 00:12:54
Very time sensitive when you get both from taken care of. So would like to do that if we have the blessing of the Commission. 00:13:03
Commissioners, is there any issues with with cleaning that meeting? 00:13:07
Should be fine. Thank you, Danny. Thank you. Anything else? 00:13:13
OK. 00:13:17
Alrighty. So we'll go ahead and move on. Now to our item number six. This is a presentation the quarterly report from the 00:13:19
Extension office, Missy Arake. 00:13:23
Hello. 00:13:30
So that was a statewide event that all the kids got to come into and it was in Stanley, NM. We went to YGA, which is Youth 00:14:04
Getaway, which is a youth get, which is a youth leadership camp that is for 8/8 to 13 year olds and it is held in Glorietta. We 00:14:10
took about 25 youth to that and also I get to serve as the senior aged leadership adults. So I get to train kids that lead the 00:14:17
younger kids throughout the camp. And so that was really awesome. We had a lot of art. We had several of our kids selected from 00:14:24
our county and we got to teach them. 00:14:30
And they had a really great experience. Our state shoot was held in Raton, NM at the NRA Whittington Center. We had senior age 00:14:37
youth compete in that and archery shotgun, rifle, air rifle and muzzler loader. And for tagging, we tagged 66 beef, 30 dairy 00:14:45
heifers, 113 pigs, 49 sheep and 170 goats. That is up from last year. There's a lot of animals. Our fairgrounds have had some 00:14:53
improvements lately. And so I think this year is going to be a really good fair. So of course invite you to that. 00:15:00
We hosted Northern Livestock School here at Valencia County Fairgrounds, which is a lovely opportunity for our individuals. It's 00:15:09
called Northern Livestock School, so it's actually open to the whole entire state. We had over 90 kids be registered and come and 00:15:16
they learn about sheep, lambs, goats, and we added dairy goats this year. And we actually had Austin who was one of our officers. 00:15:22
He helped be a youth leader and helped youth learn about sheep. We also had Anne and Uriah who are FCS ambassadors and Anne is 00:15:28
also an officer. 00:15:35
We had a really great event. We had over 80 kids compete there, which was awesome. So we it was full. It was great. It was a 00:16:12
wonderful day. And that qualified them for district and state events. And so we had around 20 youth qualified to compete at 00:16:19
district shoot at the Albuquerque Range. That'll be archery, air rifle, shotgun, rifle. 00:16:26
Many of the kids went are here today and we went to Las Cruces, spent the whole week down there. It was awesome. Long, long days, 00:17:04
long nights, but it was very successful. Those were the main highlights of summer. I want to kind of talk about let our intern 00:17:10
talk and then Crystal, of course. So I'm going to allow Crystal to talk, not allow, but I'm have Crystal come up and she's going 00:17:15
to give some of her brief highlights and then our intern is Caitlin and she's going to talk and then we'll wrap up with our 00:17:21
officers. 00:17:27
Good evening. So I'm just going to highlight a few of our projects that I've taken care of over the summer. One is the election or 00:17:37
not the election, the selection of our FCS ambassador team, they're here tonight with me. Their goal was to emphasize the FCS, the 00:17:45
family consumer science in in 4H. They also had a goal of two community service projects. One they did was cookies for the nursing 00:17:54
homes and our Extension Association of New Mexico over in February. And then the other one was a food drive this summer. 00:18:03
Of snack packs which we delivered 66 packages, 20 of them came to our community. Unfortunately the rest of them we decided to take 00:18:13
to Ruidoso with a group of foragers that took some pay and feed over there after the fires. 00:18:21
They also will be doing a lot of work at our County Fair this year with all the indoor exhibits, setting up, tearing down and 00:18:30
completing their final community service project with an adopted shop on October 5th at Wolski Farms Tractor Supply. And then 00:18:36
another big thing that was completed over the summer, which happened yesterday, was our Young Chef's Class series. Over the last 00:18:43
eight weeks on Mondays and Tuesdays, I had about 14 youth, both fouratures and non fouratures that came to class. Learned about 00:18:50
food safety. 00:18:56
They kind of did a little menu for their parents and everything. And then back in May we had a rockets class, which I had 28 00:19:42
community members, both 4H and on 4H members. Again, we invited Doctor Mark to come down. He taught them about rockets, what it is 00:19:49
to be an engineer, what it is to be a rocket science as he calls it. They got to finally put together rockets. Toward the end of 00:19:57
the day, my ambassadors came to help them and then in our parking lot, thanks to. 00:20:04
Everybody that allowed us to relaunched all those rockets that day and they got to take the rocket home with them, which I've 00:20:13
found out some of our kids have relaunched after purchasing more motors. And finally, one of our big things was a Mediterranean 00:20:20
diet on a budget where I had 20 members from the community adults come with the help of some of my ambassadors. We taught them how 00:20:28
to basically buy Mediterranean healthy items on a budget using. 00:20:35
Different benefits from. 00:20:43
The farmers market to what's in season to buying frozen items. They had a full 30 minutes of just education and then the last hour 00:20:44
and a half they cooked for everybody, a sample menu of six different items. And then we sat together as a group in eight all those 00:20:51
samples, which was really wonderful. And everybody's looking forward to more cooking classes. 00:20:59
Hi, I'm Caitlin, I'm the 2024 summer intern for the Valencia County Extension office. I've had a lot of fun in the last two months 00:21:12
learning the insurance and outs behind the programs here and how they're run. I saw and helped with a lot of events like county 00:21:18
contest, the Young Chef series, livestock school, state conference, district contest, food preserving classes, and a lot more. 00:21:24
I'm super grateful for this opportunity and I'm happy to report this has been a very positive experience for me. Thank you. Thank 00:22:03
you. 00:22:06
We're excited. We're like Caitlin can work for us now. She still has a couple more years, but it's OK, we'll get her through it. 00:22:13
So thank you all. Also, our officers are going to come up. 00:22:18
And they're going to deliver an invitation to our dessert auction. Our dessert auction is next Thursday as registration starts at 00:22:23
5:30 and it's at SNJ Sport Sporting Goods. We'd love to see you guys. You just come hang out with the kids, come look at their 00:22:31

We have another. 00:22:49

So appreciate you. Thank you. Thank you. 00:23:02
Thank you, Sarah. 00:23:08
Yeah. 00:23:10
OK, Item number 7, fiscal year 24 CYFD Continuum grant final report. 00:23:13
Vivid. Good evening, Mr. Chairman. Commissioners, that's a tough act to follow, but I'm glad to see that the youth are so involved 00:23:36
in Valencia County. It's kind of leads us into this presentation. So as you gentlemen are aware, we have the CYFD agreement and we 00:23:43
just completed year four of that agreement. Christine's going to get into a little bit more detail, but we're very excited to 00:23:51
start on a new three-year venture with CYFD. This particular presentation is going to be discussing the. 00:23:58
The semiannual. 00:24:07
Update on expenditures and essentially what transpired with the board, the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board from June to December. 00:24:09
So before I introduce Christine, I did want to take a moment to introduce some of our youth subcommittee members. We have Isabella 00:24:17
Medina, Jacob Arginine, and Josiah Vallejos. So as we get to a particular spot within the presentation, they do have some items 00:24:25
that they'd like to distribute to gentlemen. So with that, I'd like to introduce Christine to start the presentation. 00:24:33
Thank you. 00:24:42
Good evening. How are you guys today? I'm not sure why it's not popping up on the screens, but I did share it. 00:24:45
I'm sorry, bear with me. 00:24:54
Are you able to see it on your screens? 00:25:05
OK. 00:25:09
I'm sorry this is like brand new to me. There's like different options. OK, let's try this one. 00:25:14
OK. I'm sorry for the technical difficulties, but I'll just run through it quickly. So this sorry, let me just introduce myself. 00:25:34
I'm Christine Adien. I am the continuum coordinator for the Valencia County under the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board grant. What 00:25:43
I'm supposed to do is make sure that the continuum receives programs for at risk youth. And so I was here in December and. 00:25:53
I shared with you all up to the point from July 1st to December. Now I'm going to share January 2024 to June 2024 as a program 00:26:03
expenditures. And then I also wanted to let you all know that part of this last fiscal year we purchased silicone wristbands and 00:26:10
magnetic buttons that are used subcommittee members will pass out to you. Now these are for community events that we host within 00:26:18
Glen Valenta County anywhere. 00:26:26
Anytime we have youth engagement involvement, we want the youth to engage with the members and pass out stuff that has Yousupp 00:26:34
committee. 00:26:40
Use subcommittee labels. 00:26:46
So for the next slide, we have the. 00:26:50
Excuse me, you subcommittee community events. We had one on March 2nd at the Lasunas High School Resource Fair. We had one on May 00:26:54
31st at the Valencia County Torch Run, the La Vida Family Expo, which was the 10th one on June 7th. So all of these events we do 00:27:01
provide our knickknacks that we've provided over the last two fiscal years. 00:27:09
And unfortunately you are unable to see the pictures that I provided for you all. We're working on it. 00:27:18
Maybe I'll go back. There we go. Here we go. We're getting them. OK. So maybe I should share differently. 00:27:25
OK, So then Lavilis Fountain Family Expo. We had the youth there. We were. We had a table and a tent. We were there for our all 00:27:41
day long, to be honest. We were there at 7:00 in the morning just to make sure that we get a good spot and we didn't leave until 00:27:49
close to 2:00. We had a lot of vendors there and there was a lot of community that was involved. We had a ******** and our youth 00:27:56
were engaged and they were able to win prizes. We had. 00:28:04
Ice Popsicles. 00:28:12
And candy and fruit snacks and gummies, all that good stuff. 00:28:13
So then the H2 Gala for H2 Academic Solutions. They have a Youth of the Year award every year and we decided to recognize our 00:28:19
youth member, Josiah Vallejos. He is 15 years old. He goes to school at Dreams Academy. He is a Future Farmers of America in that 00:28:26
chapter. He is a youth subcommittee, of course, the YDI team Court and YDI Teen Outreach program. He is. He has also taken 00:28:34
criminal justice courses at UNNBC, interning at a local law office. 00:28:41
And he is a member of the United Nations. So because of all of his involvement and achievements, we felt that it would be awesome 00:28:49
that he would be recognized at this event. 00:28:55
Which was an awesome event to go to. There was just different youth recognized at the gala. 00:29:01
So the next slide is the Opioid Remediation Collaborative. 00:29:09
For short ORC Shawna Hartley is a liaison for the Collaborative and. 00:29:14
Valencia County is one of seven that signed a joint powers agreement to form the collaborative. The total funding for the seven 00:29:22
counties is $195 million to remediate remediate the opioid epidemic. The reason why I'm bringing it up because our youth were 00:29:29
allowed the opportunity to create a flyer to. 00:29:36
Bring awareness to opioid and so the top three were picked. However, I'm not exactly sure which one was is hanging up in the 00:29:44
hallways of New Mexico schools. 00:29:50
So the slogan that we have here is save your brain too much to gain. So the top two are vertical and then we have another one that 00:29:57
is horizontal. And each of the little pieces were brought together by all of our youth subcommittee members. 00:30:05
Next, the fun stuff. So we did the These are the graphs for the monthly program and match expenditures from January 2024 to June 00:30:16
2024. 00:30:22
The blue represents the programming expenditure and the red represents the match expenditures. The next slide is showing the 00:30:29
entire year, the fiscal year in September, you see that the red is skyrocketing to almost $80,000. That is because our youth 00:30:36
subcommittee, I'm sorry, my excuse me, not the you subcommittee, the Attendance for Success subcommittee partnered with Belen 00:30:43
Schools to host attendance. 00:30:50
Resource Fair. 00:30:58
The families out there, it was a huge event. It was wonderful. 00:31:00
Umm, then I'm sorry. 00:31:05
So we have FY24, the fiscal year 24, we were awarded 600 and $468,769.70. We were, we are happy to say that we are reverting 00:31:09
$687.70. This includes a youth subcommittee funding, 15% program support, restorative justice programming and boys Council 00:31:18
sessions. 00:31:27
And for also in FY24, our match amount was $194,708 and we exceeded that amount by $97,450.77 for a total of $292,158.65 that were 00:31:38
used by Valencia County. 00:31:48
Here you see the survey comparisons from FY23 to FY24. These surveys are. 00:32:00
Provided by CYFD and are required that we fill them out, have the staff fill them out and have the youth fill them out at the end 00:32:08
of services. And FY23 we served 1266 youth and of those total we there were 724 youth that filled out 757. This fiscal year we 00:32:16
serve 782 youth with 395 filling out 426. 00:32:24
So this fiscal year we met a lot of the marks were 100% was completed, the program was satisfaction. 00:32:33
I pushed the button. I'm so sorry. 00:32:49
So we applied for a new three-year grant in December and the amount that we had applied for is 2,640,948 to cover the requested 00:32:53
programs of four sites and rack a day reporting center. Boffin Life skills One circle is the umbrella for Boys Council, Girls 00:33:00
circle and Unity Circle and restorative justice. 00:33:07
So we were actually awarded $2,178,657.60. So a total for each year would be $769,629 with a grant match. I'm sorry, a grant 00:33:16
amount of 549 dollars, $735 and the Valencia County would be responsible for 40% of that match, which is $219 and 894. I'm sorry, 00:33:26
I said that's so wrong, 219,000. 00:33:36
$894. 00:33:47
So again, we did apply for two new programs and we did get those two new programs a day, Reporting Center and Unity Circle. 00:33:49
The Day Reporting Center is a program that Valencia County has been wanting to have. 00:33:57
For the As long as I can remember, we want to partner with law enforcement agencies, juvenile probation and local school districts 00:34:05
serving youth 12 to 17 years of age. We will be The intention is to be open 365 days out of the year and to reflect a school day, 00:34:12
a work day for the parents especially. 00:34:18
For these youth, they are long term suspended, expelled, or who are looking to complete their GED or alternative school 00:34:26
equivalency. While the youth are at the DRC program, they're not only going to receive schooling, but also resources that help 00:34:33
them meet their goals. So JPRJPO referrals our priority and the the offenses include weapon offenses, violent outbursts, severe 00:34:40
substance misuse, suicide, ideation, behavior, health concerns. 00:34:47
And with this program, we hope to serve 60 youths in the fiscal year. 00:34:54
The Unity Circle is a new program. It is a program much like Boys Council and Girls Circle. However, it the content will 00:35:00
degenerate to allow for LGBTQ community to be involved. One session per week for 52 weeks and with a combination of Boys Council 00:35:07
and Girls Circle we hope to serve 90 youth. 00:35:15
Thank you so much for your time. I apologize for my mistakes and mishaps. My name is Christina and I am the Continuum coordinator 00:35:24
and I stand for any questions that you all have. 00:35:29
Thank you, Commissioners. Any questions? 00:35:34
Piercer is done. Thank you for your report. Thank you so much. Have a wonderful evening. You as well. Thank you. 00:35:38
OK, we'll go ahead and move on now to our public hearing portion of the meeting. We have four public hearings tonight. We'll take 00:35:50
them individually, of course. First one item number 8 is a zone change 2024-029. Applicant is Dean The Hill. If there's anybody 00:35:55

going to speak on your. 00:36:06
Just go ahead and stand to be sworn in. 00:36:14
Do you swear, affirm, that this testimony you will give in this case will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the 00:36:20
truth, under the penalty of laws to help you God? 00:36:23
OK, Ryan, it's all yours. 00:36:29
Good evening, Chairman. Commissioners, for you this evening is a request for a zone change number 2024029. This is District 5 00:36:35
Planning and Zoning Commissioner Montoya Board of County Commissioners out of going. 00:36:40
I apologize. Those are both vacant seats. As soon as I said auto go and I realized I'm going to take that. Those are vacant. 00:36:49
Currently, both P&Z and Board of County Commissioners Dean V Hill has requested his own change from Rural Residential District 2R2 00:36:57
to Rural Residential District 1R1 to split the property into five lots. Legal description follows on the what is listed on the 00:37:04
agenda. And I do stand. Excuse me. This was presented in front of the PNZ Commission on April 23rd. 00:37:12
It was approved with a vote of recommended for approval with a vote of four to zero. And I do stand for any questions, if there's 00:37:20
any questions of Mr. Bucket. 00:37:24
Appearance there is done. We have the applicant here, Mr. B Hill. Is there anything you'd like to add to that? 00:37:31
Go ahead and come on up with it. 00:37:39
Any questions of the applicant, Mr. Vihil, Commissioners? 00:37:42
Here's the resemblance. We'll be making a decision on this after our executive session this evening. OK, thank you. Thank you. 00:37:47
OK. Item number 9, also zone change 2024-034. Applicant is Eric Hernandez. If there's anybody that's going to give any testimony 00:37:55
on this particular zone change, please stand so you can be sworn in. Mr. Chair, if there was somebody on the last item. 00:38:03
Go ahead and come back up. I'm sorry I didn't see you raise your hand. I apologize. Go ahead and come back up to the podium, 00:38:14
please. 00:38:17
Thank you for catching that. And they'll need to be sworn in. I don't think they stood for that. 00:38:22
OK, so go ahead and come back up to the podium and you'll need to be sworn in. 00:38:28
I. 00:38:42
OK, if you'll each state your name and address for the record please Anna Level I live at 256 Kirkman Rd. 00:38:47
Elizabeth Espinoza, 252 Kirfman Rd. 00:38:56
OK, is this. 00:39:01
Right, I was looking at the address now. 00:39:05
OK. So we'll be getting to you guys in a second. Was there somebody that wanted to speak on the zone change for Dean De Hill, the 00:39:07
previous one? We're neighbors, OK. 00:39:13
OK. And you can go ahead and move the microphone down a little bit so you can, yes. So we had questions about what it means to 00:39:19
move from RR1TO RR 2 and if that affects our property. 00:39:25
Mr. Baca, would you please come forward to answer that? 00:39:33
So Chairman, commissioners, so for a little clarification, it is the request is to go from RR2 to R1. What the big thing that the 00:39:41
requester is hoping to change here is the dwelling densities. The one in RR1 stands for one dwelling unit per acre. RR 2 is for 00:39:49
two dwelling units per acre. So they will excuse me, one dwelling unit per two acres. So with an RR one for, they will be able to 00:39:57
split their property down to a single acre. Whereas with RR 2, the smallest lot size would be two acres. 00:40:05
May stand for any additional questions. Did that answer your question? 00:40:13
Well, we just needed to know if that's going to affect anything to do with a well, sewers or any kind of utilities, livestock. 00:40:18
There'll be any changes that affect us on that. 00:40:28
The Chairman, commissioners, so for the difference there, the use permitted uses are going to basically be the same. It's just the 00:40:32
lot size will be the difference here in this situation. So there will be the dwelling density will change as well as the minimum 00:40:37
lot size. 00:40:42
As far as effect on your property, I don't know that we have that answer, Mr. *****. 00:40:47
I mean, Mr. Chairman, I certainly we can't advise on that as you're just, you're sitting as a judicial board. I mean, you can 00:40:54
review the evidence presented and make that determination for your, you know, on yourself, by yourself. But basically it, yeah, it 00:41:00
basically means that theoretically you'll have more neighbours because they'll be. 00:41:06
The lots will be smaller. That's really what's at the heart of it. 00:41:13
OK, since we don't have any say so on it basically certainly you have every right to if you did you let me ask, did you receive a 00:41:19
notice in the mail? OK, you certainly have a you have the right to advise the board of why you don't think that should happen. And 00:41:27
the applicant can ask questions of you and you can ask questions of the applicant pursuant to the the chairman's authorization and 00:41:34
you can you can say why you don't want that to happen, but that's you have every right to do that right now. 00:41:42
The road's gonna go with in and out that property. Is that so this is a for a zone change. You know, we're just changing the, the 00:41:50
zoning. That just means how it is, how it is legally put up. Now what how that happens, it'll you know, how the roads are 00:41:56
configured, all that sort of thing. That is a question for another day. We're just changing. They're just looking at changing the 00:42:02
zoning. So that would be another process that would not happen right now. This would just mean you're changing what is allowed on 00:42:08
that property. 00:42:13
OK, well my main concern is if that's going to affect anything to do with. 00:42:21
Water our whales or sewage and anything down the future as far as regulating any what kind of animals we can have or not as being 00:42:27
a smaller, I mean dividing the property of bringing more people in. That's all I needed to know. 00:42:36
I do believe Mr. Dances, all of those questions that you're having will be addressed when they apply for the permits for the use 00:42:48
of for their wells and septic. Is that correct? 00:42:52
Yes, I mean if depending on what processes they go through and and the subdivision application, they'll be. This is basically just 00:42:58
whether whether or not the the conditions. 00:43:03
The conditions require a zone change, which means, you know, of course, we we've discussed all the time, but you know, how many 00:43:09
similar zones are there in the area you know, is it changing? 00:43:14
Is it that sort of thing right? 00:43:20
OK. Thank you. 00:43:24
OK. Is there anybody else that wishes to speak on this before I move on to the next one? Mr. B Hill, is there anything you wish to 00:43:32
say at this time? 00:43:36
OK. I think we're good, Mr. Chair. Yes. Could Ryan bring up the map to so they can see where the other closest RR ones are so 00:43:42
these people can see it? 00:43:48
Account The highlighted property is in blue. 00:45:01
Or purple, that is the RR 2 districts and the nearest RR one would be here to the West, approximately 28 miles. 00:45:04
Answer your question. 00:45:20
Any other questions for me, if I might just to clarify, Ryan? 00:45:22
So the the nearest one. 00:45:27
It's right here. 00:45:32
That's the nearest R&R and it's the properties in blue. 00:45:34
Are all of. 00:45:43
Are all of those lots? What's going on with the other lots though, that it looks like they're smaller on the map? 00:45:45
It's a little subdivision off Miller Rd. correct? So Chairman, Commissioners, there are approximately 1 acre lots directly to the 00:46:26
West. These would be off of Merced Road and Manana Road. And then as well as some of the lots just South of this on Kirfman, those 00:46:33
are also one acre lots as well. Approximately. It's basically surrounded by one acre lots of South and West. Definitely is. East 00:46:39
is the highway and then N is, I believe the prison. 00:46:46
And what is, what is that? And what are the lots highlighted in green? 00:46:55
That less Mid Valley Airpark. 00:46:59
I'm sorry, which lots was that lots in green cross 3-4. So Chairman commissioners that would be part of the airpark. They are 00:47:03
zoned commercial one. Their lot sizes are a little different requirements on that. 00:47:10
Any other questions? 00:47:20
OK. Thank you, Mr. Brock. Thank you. 00:47:24
I'm going to go ahead and just stay up there. OK, we'll go. You'll start item number 9 now. 00:47:27
Zone Change 2024-034 Applicant Eric Hernandez, Is there anybody with us this evening that is going to give any testimony on this 00:47:34
particular zone change? If so, I'll need you to stand so you can be sworn in. 00:47:41
OK. 00:47:50
Not yet. They need to swear you in for this. 00:47:54
OK, Mr. Buck. 00:48:07
Or just move it. 00:48:12
Good evening, Chairman, Commissioners. 00:48:17
Before you this evening is as a request for Zone change number 2024034. Once again this is District 5. Both Planning and Zoning 00:48:20
and Board of County Commissioner seats are vacant currently. Eric Hernandez requests his own change from Rural Residential 00:48:28
district to RR 2 to Neighborhood Commercial District C1 with a conditional use to park semi trucks and trailers. Legal description 00:48:36
is listed on the agenda. This one was heard April 23rd. This was recommended to be denied with a vote of four to zero. 00:48:44
At that time for the meeting on the 23rd of April, there were two individuals in favor of the request, which were. 00:48:53
Some of the neighbors directly to the north and then we also had two in opposition. Some of their concerns had to do with the 00:49:01
safety by the additional vehicles and commercial vehicles entering and exiting that location and also the additional traffic 00:49:06
that's going to be with the commercial zoning and. 00:49:11
This is a, this isn't also one that we've been working on for a little while. They, this is brought to our attention because it 00:49:17
was tagged by code enforcement. They were already using it for this purpose. So we have tagged them and now they are working with 00:49:22
us to try to come into compliance. And that's what the request is here for today. And I stand for. Any questions, Commissioners, 00:49:27
Any questions, Mr. Buckley? 00:49:32
Not at this time and is the applicant. I did not see the applicant or any of the representatives today. OK. 00:49:41
So we have two people that want to speak on this, ma'am, if you go ahead and come forth. 00:49:48

There is a lot of traffic with the trucks and stuff and couple times. 00:50:17
We almost hit. So I was really concerned because I have small grandkids and you know, the dogs are always barking. I know that's 00:50:23
just annoyance in that part, but we. 00:50:28
Really don't want that around there because it's really a nice neighborhood, you know, but. 00:50:33
I don't know how you guys do this stuff so and just. 00:50:38
This is annoying. 00:50:44
For me, you know. 00:50:46
So I don't know what else. 00:50:48
You know what else it can, you know, contain? I'm nervous. I'm sorry. 00:50:51
So we just want the quiet neighborhood and they they should be in another area and they had been doing it for a while so. 00:50:58
I don't know. That's it. Thank you. Thank you very much, Sir. 00:51:08
And you'll also state your name and address for the record. 00:51:18
My name is Rex Level. I live at 256 Kirkman Rd. OK. And you did receive a certified letter regarding the zone change? Did you 00:51:22
receive a letter regarding? Yes. Thank you. Go ahead. 00:51:27
A concern I have is. 00:51:35
Doing a maintenance on sometimes they do they have done maintenance on that property. You know chemicals, you know you're it's a 00:51:39
diesel trucks diesel and. 00:51:45
Transmission fluid, any other things for a vehicle, if they have a spill there, it's going directly into the dirt. There's no 00:51:52
asphalt or or concrete or anything. 00:51:59
Also it's. 00:52:07
The noise, sometimes it's pretty loud when they come in and they Jake break and do stuff, so that's the concerns I had. 00:52:09
It's a quiet neighborhood. We like to keep it quiet. 00:52:22
And there are children around there. There's quite a few that go to school there. 00:52:26
That go to elementary school. 00:52:32
Not high school. They're elementary kids. And. 00:52:34
Though those were our concerns in our neighborhood that I heard from other people. 00:52:39
So I just needed those addressed. 00:52:47
OK. 00:52:52
Thank you very much. Thank you, Chair. Yes, Sir. Sir, Commissioner has a question for you since the applicants not here. 00:52:53
It's several there's. 00:53:03
**** quite a few. 00:53:06
It's not just one. 00:53:08
No, no, it's a multiple trucks. I can count 1. 00:53:10
Two trailers that have their mobile homes that the the the tractor, their tractor trailers so the tractor pulls up, which is a 00:53:18
semi truck it pulls up and then they they have a bunch of trailers that they parked there and at times I see there's. 00:53:28
Up to 6-7. 00:53:39
Trucks and trailers there. 00:53:42
There's quite a few. It's not. It's not just one guy, just not one guy driving in and out. 00:53:45
Any other questions? 00:53:50
Thank you, Sir. 00:53:54
Thank you, Mr. Bucket. 00:53:55
Does this request fall within the guidelines of the Comprehensive Plan? 00:54:01
So, Chairman, Commissioners. 00:54:04
This one, it's, it's kind of a tougher 1 to save on this. It's not part of a priority growth corridor. It's it is on a state 00:54:07
highway. So it does provide some access to good services that the community does request through the through the comprehensive 00:54:13
plan. However, it doesn't fit into a priority growth corridor, priority growth region. So there are some things that do fit, some 00:54:19
things that might not quite fit exactly. 00:54:25
Very good Commissioners. Any questions, Mr. Buckner? 00:54:33
Mr. Chairman, of course we'd like to see the map one, but two, just confirmation did the applicant. 00:54:37
Receive actual or or or legal notice that this meeting was happening. For the record. So chairman, Commissioners, they did receive 00:54:45
the certified letter. 00:54:51
I don't have my my certified letters the the copy of that for the receipt, but I can verify that if you'd like. But we did send to 00:55:04
the applicant as well as all the residents within 300 feet of the property. 00:55:10
OK. But did you verify it already when you already looked? Yeah, I did. I did look at that and it was, it was confirmed receipts. 00:55:18
That's correct. OK, thank you. 00:55:22
Anything else, Commissioners? 00:55:30
Just for clarification one more time, the applicant is not with us this evening, correct? I have not seen the applicant or any 00:55:32
representatives this evening. OK, very good. This would also be making a decision after our executive session. 00:55:38
OK. Item number 10 also zone change 2024-052I. 00:55:45
This is a zone change applicant Elizabeth Steinke. Mr. Baca, would you go ahead and present, please? 00:55:53
And if there's anybody that's going to give any testimony on this zone change, I would ask that you please stand at this time to 00:56:02
be sworn in. 00:56:04
Yes, I do. 00:56:18
And so Chairman, Commissioners, I just wanted to provide a little clarification on that last question. I was able to verify Eric 00:56:22
Hernandez did receive his notice of public of public hearing today. And so this evening before you as a request for the zone 00:56:30
change number 2024052 District 4 PNZ Commissioner sublet Board of County Commissioners Bozell Elizabeth Stanky requests a zone 00:56:38
change from rural residential district to RR 2 to agricultural preservation AP to operate a micro dairy. 00:56:46
Legal description is listed in the agenda. This case. This was heard on May the 28th and it was recommended for approval with a 00:56:55
vote of four to zero I. 00:57:00
And today the applicant did provide a little bit more additional information for some questions that were brought up during the 00:57:06
PNC meeting. She has provided us with a map showing the water rights that she currently does hold. And I believe she also just 00:57:11
mentioned something that she does have some of her. 00:57:16
New Mexico Environmental Department discharge statements and stuff, so she would like to possibly present those to you as well 00:57:21
this evening as further proof of her intentions with the property. 00:57:25
Nice point for any questions, Any questions, Mr. Baca? 00:57:31
I believe we have the applicants here with us this evening. 00:57:35
If you go ahead and come forward and state your name and address for the record, please. 00:57:37
Good afternoon, chairman and Commissioners. My name is Elizabeth Stanky and I live at 9 Guillema Lane, Belina, New Mexico 87002. 00:57:42
And as the applicant, you did receive notice, legal notice of the hearing tonight? Yes, it is. Yeah, go ahead. I would just like 00:57:49
to present to commissioners the letter from New Mexico Environmental Department and the process of getting our Grade A dairy 00:57:55
certification. There are several steps we have to go through as far as making sure they won't have any impacts on the environment. 00:58:00
We have a very small herd of goats. 00:58:05
I'm sorry I had to say thank you. 00:58:43
Questions. Commissioners for sure, please. So with that discharge permit through your barns and stuff, you won't have you just 00:58:46
take the. 00:58:49
Get some of that compaction down. 00:59:26
Increase the water and water infiltration in the soil and hopefully make it a lot less water to be able to water the soil. So in 00:59:28
five years we'll have a much better piece of land for everyone to enjoy as well As for our goats to enjoy. 00:59:33
Any other questions, Commissioners? 00:59:41
Mr. Chair, with the with the goats, what are the requirements? Are they going to have to have a special conditional use if they 00:59:43
get a bigger herd? Are you planning on getting any kind of bigger herd or anything like that? Because we're, it's just my husband 00:59:47
and I were very small, so. 00:59:51
Thank you. 01:00:26
And those letters that she brought with you, you need copies of those, or have you received copies, right? 01:00:27
For the discharge part, that one we will look at if approved, we'll start looking into that during the site design review as well. 01:00:34
Good enough. 01:00:38
OK. Commissioners, any other questions? 01:00:42
OK, here's your sensor. Where are you going to speak also? 01:00:46
Again, if you'll just state your name and address for the record, same address for my wife and you know. 01:00:50
Anything else you want to ask me? Is there anything you wish to share with us? He's got everything, OK? 01:00:57
OK. Thank you very much. 01:01:03
OK. We will be making a decision on this zone change also after our executive session. OK, lesson change, this is an appeal 01:01:06
2024-080 Mr. Baca. 01:01:13
Good evening again, Chairman, Commissioners. 01:01:25
Before you this evening is a request to appeal #2024 Zero Dash 8, this is District 3 PNC Commission, Moran Board of County 01:01:27
Commissioner Sparkman. 01:01:31
Nolan Petrie requested an appeal of Valencia County Planning and Zoning Commission's denial of a 40 foot variance. This was 01:01:37
variance number 2024051. This is a variance to the set back requirement for an accessory structure and you in order to build an 01:01:42
auxiliary shop. 01:01:48
The legal description follows on the agenda and this was heard on May 28th and at that time it was was denied with a vote of three 01:01:54
to zero. 01:01:59
And for the for that. 01:02:06
Some of the reasoning was that it wasn't shown to be a hardship or that there weren't other options for the applicant. And so that 01:02:09
was kind of the basis of that denial. And I stand for any questions, any questions of Mr. Bucker. 01:02:15
There's none at this time. If there's anybody that's going to give any testimony on this, I would ask that you please stand at 01:02:24
this time and so you can be sworn in. 01:02:28
Sir, are you the applicant? 01:02:46
OK, please come forward and for the record, please state your name and address. 01:02:48
Good afternoon, Chairman. Commissioners, I'm Nolan Petrie. My address is 40 Venetaria Circle, Belen, NM 87002. 01:02:57
And I'm here, one of the things that one of the reasons it was also denied was they asked me in the meeting if I had a home 01:03:08
occupancy permit and I said I didn't because I didn't recognize that. And when I went to apply for it, I found out I did have it 01:03:14
after all, it was part of my business license. 01:03:21
I just forgotten what all it included, so that was one of the reasons it was denied. 01:03:28
And since I was always in compliance, I'm asking. 01:03:35
That's one reason I was, I'm appealing the decision of the Planning and Zoning Commission, but I'm here for any questions if you 01:03:39
have them. OK. 01:03:44
Any questions of Mr. Petrie? 01:03:49
You have one for Mr. Buck, if you don't mind, Certainly. 01:03:53
So what do you have all the reasons why they decided to deny this change? 01:03:58
So Chairman, commissioners, based on the review requirements for a variance, what they determined was that this was not considered 01:04:04
a hardship, that there were other options for locations that he could place this. The the use of the structure was discussed 01:04:10
during the planning and zoning meeting. The use was going to be used to store some cement equipment for a construction company or 01:04:16
excuse me, for a home occupation. 01:04:22
So when that was brought up, there were some questions to verify whether or not the business registration was in place, that he 01:04:29
did have the proper home occupation registration. So during that time there was a little confusion. I don't believe Mr. Petrie, 01:04:35
just the wording of it, I think got him a little confused on that. I don't. The Commission did not state that that was a reason 01:04:40
for their denial at any point, but it did get brought up during the meeting. 01:04:46
Zaheer, thank you. 01:04:53
Mr. *****? Yes, Mr. Chairman. 01:04:55
And for the applicant, of course, or the appellant in this situation, since this is. 01:04:58
I'd like to run through the the criteria for a variance and then maybe you could speak to why why these would apply to you to 01:05:03
inform the board. 01:05:06
Basically, one special conditions and circumstances exist which are peculiar to the land, building or structure. The granting 01:05:12
would be in the public interest. 01:05:17
The variance would result in a minimal detriment to the vicinity. 01:05:24
The variance requested is the minimum variance that would make it possible. 01:05:28
The special conditions and circumstances. 01:05:33
On which the application is based do not result from negligent or knowing violations of the zoning code and it wouldn't violate 01:05:36
state environmental regulations. So I can read back any of those if you want. But really the most important I think that needs to 01:05:41
be spoken to are what special circumstances exist which are peculiar to your land, building or structure that require a variance 01:05:47
other than following the regular law. 01:05:53
Are you asking me to answer them? I'm asking you to yes, Sir, to explain to the Commission. 01:06:00
Part of the reason is to facilitate. 01:06:06
Vehicle traffic and trailer parking on my property. 01:06:09
It will keep it over against the. 01:06:14
Property line Another thing that's peculiar about my property is that we're basically at the end of the road up against the BNSF 01:06:17
Railway, so there's very little traffic for. 01:06:23
No traffic by my place. 01:06:29
So as far as. 01:06:32
It really impacts very, very few people. I do have one neighbor. He was going to send an e-mail of his approval. 01:06:35
Of this I don't know if he sent it or not. He told me he was going to. 01:06:43
OK, he might have forgotten. 01:06:49
But he isn't. He is in favor of it. 01:06:51
Anything else, Commissioners? Mr. Chair, just a quick question for the applicant. I see your this site plan part of this. 01:06:59
Where is the entrance to your property? Is it on the material circle or on Las Vegas Rd. At this time it is on Las Boregas. Las 01:07:09
Boregas is maintained by the county. Vena 30 is not. 01:07:15
So this our address has been a Teriya, but since Las Bodegas is maintained, that's where we come in off of. 01:07:23
Anything else, commissioners? Miss Richardson, Anything else? 01:07:37
Richard, was there anything else? Are you still studying that I'm good. Are you sure? 01:07:59
Take some time if you need to look it over. 01:08:05
OK. 01:08:08
Very good. 01:08:10
OK. And I don't believe there's anybody else that was going to give any testimony on this appeal. 01:08:12
Mr. Buck, is there anything else for me? 01:08:18
OK, very good. We'll make a decision on this after our executive session also. 01:08:20
OK. At this time, we're going to go ahead and move on into our action items. At this time, I need a motion to adjourn as Board of 01:08:26
County Commissioners reconvene as indigent board, please. So moved. 01:08:31

OK. 01:13:10
Thank you, Dan. 01:13:20
OK, Item 14, consider consideration of resolution state bars. Mr. Hill. Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, this state bars that I am 01:13:44
presenting to you today is in art. In preparation for fiscal year and reporting to the Department of Finance, we are not allowed 01:13:51
by state statute to report any negative budget balances within our final fiscal year end reporting. So we do have to take care of 01:13:59
everything that we overspend slightly from the budget. 01:14:07
This is what this will do and also there are. 01:14:15
Or three items in which we needed to, I'm sorry, what 345 items in which we needed to? 01:14:19
Temporarily loan money to grant funds. 01:14:27
In order not to report a negative balance at the end of the fiscal year. So we've requested reimbursement on on this grants we you 01:14:35
know spend the money and they are in a reimbursable reimbursement has been requested, but we did not receive the reimbursement 01:14:41
prior to fiscal year end. 01:14:46
So we borrow from the general fund, or in one of the cases we borrow from another grant within the same state fund. 01:14:52
To in order not to report a negative balance and as soon as we get that reimbursement in July, we then put the money back into the 01:15:02
to the general fund. 01:15:08
OK. Any questions of Mr. Hu? 01:15:16
Mr. Chair, please, when we borrow money from 1 grant to another, does that cannot affect? 01:15:19
The reporting, I mean, is it better just to borrow it from the general fund than compared to 1 grant to another? Mr. Chairman, 01:15:25
Commissioner Bozell, normally over the years we borrowed from the general Fund all the time. However, lately some of the grants 01:15:33
give us 100% of the money up front, and reporting to the state is a little different than our funds. So, for instance, all the 01:15:41
capital appropriations we get, we report all of them under one state fund. 01:15:49
They're all in there. So if we got additional, if we got the full amount of the grant, if we got the money up front, there's 01:15:57
always enough to cover those ones that have a negative balance on our books. It doesn't have one at the state level. It does on 01:16:05
our book. So we just do that temporary transfer or temporary loan until we get that money back. It it's just a operational 01:16:12
procedure. It doesn't cost any issues. I guess my question would be, would we ever get in trouble for? 01:16:20
Or if they say we're trying to. 01:16:28
Misused funds, even though it's paying one grant to another grant. Would it, Would it, Mr. Chairman, Commissioner Bezel, no, we 01:16:33
will not. No, as if it's on a temporary like one month basis that that's not an issue. If we're going to do it long term, then 01:16:40
then I do need to get that approval from them, if I may. It's easier for accounting purposes too, right? It is much easier for 01:16:48
