SMA has already contracted with the city to prepare the design and construction documents for the project.

According to information in the committee’s agenda packet, cell 4 at the landfill is expected to reach capacity in about five and a half months.

The council will also consider recommending a resolution authorizing development of an Asset Management Plan within four years for the water department. The plan is needed to meet eligibility requirements to request funding from the New Mexico Water Trust Board.

The committee will also hear about the need for an updated water conservation plan that is also required to apply for funds from the Water Trust Board. The plan will be drafted by the Water Maintenance and Transmission Department and will come before the committee for recommendation once it is completed.
