Curry to finalize infrastructure plan
August 18, 2019
CLOVIS — The Curry County Commission plans to finalize its Infrastructure Capital Improvement Plan during its regular meeting Tuesday morning.
The ICIP is a document every municipality moves on to its state legislators, with hopes the projects identified receive capital outlay dollars in the upcoming legislative session. Municipalities often rank their top five projects, but include numerous others because legislators often will not fund projects that have not been identified on an ICIP.
Curry County has identified nearly four dozen projects for potential capital outlay dollars over the next five years. Entering Tuesday’s meeting, the suggested top five priorities are courthouse reimprovements ($6 million), various road projects ($1.235 million), a 4-H/Extension building ($1 million), and work on Curry Roads P/Q ($660,000) and Curry Road 11 ($793,900).
Other items on the agenda for the 9 a.m. meeting at the Curry County Administrative Complex include:
• An update on the Eastern New Mexico Water Utility Authority from Executive Director Orlando Ortega.
• A request to pay the county’s $29,284 annual obligation for the water authority from its environmental fund.
• A policy update for the county’s foster grandparent program.
