T-or-C Resident Dianne Lombardo Offers Praise for Animal Shelter

PRO SHELTER – T-or-C resident Dianne Lombardo (at podium) was one of several citizens on hand to share public comments with city commissioners during their October 9 regular meeting. Lombardo offered praise for recent changes at the city’s animal shelter and went on to urge commissioners to seek an experienced professional to fill the now vacant shelter manager post. Lombardo was preceded by several other community residents, who offered their concerns about the board’s recent decision to engage a changeover to “smart meters” and an accompanying Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system.

Highlighting the October 10 regular meeting of the Truth or Consequences (T-or-C) city commission, was board approval of an ordinance seeking a loan agreement with the New Mexico Environment Department for sewer system upgrades. This measure aims to secure a $473,000 loan to rehabilitate the city’s vacuum sanitary sewer system, which commissioners were told has been a central issue in numerous system disruptions over the past several years.

The Tuesday morning session also saw the establishment of March 3, 2020 as the next municipal officer election day. On that day voters will be asked to fill one, two-year and two, available four-year commission posts, as well as to determine a winning candidate for the municipal judge position.

In further action, commissioners cancelled the board’s second regular meetings for the months of November and December, and formally adopted recent revisions in the state’s uniform traffic ordinance.
