    • The Governing Body and staff participated in a Council Strategic Priorities Planning Retreat on Saturday, February 10, 2018, facilitated by Gus Cordova from The Mercer Group.

    • Los Lunas Museum of Heritage & Arts staff are going through 380 submissions for the Student Art Show from schools in Los Lunas and Belen, which is the largest participation in the history of the event. Submissions will be juried and those accepted into the show will be notified.
    • The Village Utility Billing Office was contacted regarding toilet test kits from the Norlab Company out of Ohio. They were running a special, so we bought three (3) cases and received one (1) free. We created flyers, and will place a notice on our billing statements and on Xpress Bill Pay (XBP) allowing customers to take advantage of the kits while they last. We will hold one (1) case out for the continuous consumption report customers. It could be a leaky toilet and they could pick up a test kit or we can mail to them with our informational booklet of things to look for when they suspect a leak.

The project was well-received, and we were invited by the committee chairman to come back this summer to provide an update. We appreciate the opportunity to make the presentation, and the support we have received, not only locally and regionally, but now at the state level. A follow-up letter was sent to Governor Susana Martinez to update her on the project, and request specific funding for this project in the State budget.
