    • The LLPD speed trailer has been set out on Main Street and is collecting data that will be analyzed to determine the amount of speeding vehicles traveling down Main Street.
    • On Sunday night, several Village departments, including Fire, Police, Parks, Open Space, and Code Enforcement, responded to an emergency call to the River Park for four teens stuck in the river. Dispatch was able to ping their location, and, after about a 30-minute search, the kids were located stuck in the middle of the river. All the teens were reunited with their families about 1.5 hours after the initial dispatch.
    • Community Development staff has drafted a proposed amendment to the Zoning Ordinance that would permit a small encroachment into the rear setback for open patios. The proposed ordinance will be presented to Planning & Zoning Commission and Village Council for consideration in August.
  2. For Week Ending July 7, 2018

    This week in the Village...
    • Great Job and a BIG Thank You to all Village employees, volunteers, and cooperating agencies for planning and carrying out another successful and well-attended 4th of July Community Celebration this week, including a parade, activities at the park, and fireworks!
    • In response to a request for emergency assistance in cleaning up after recent flooding in Belen, the Village of Los Lunas provided various equipment and operators, to include a skid steer, front-end loader, dump truck, street sweeper, and backhoe. Belen Mayor Jerah Cordova expressed appreciation for our assistance.  
    • The Summer Reading Program is going strong at the Los Lunas Public Library. Participation is at an all-time high. Children's Librarian Stephanie Birr introduced the children and their parents to yoga this week. The workout session was coupled with rest breaks that highlight poetry on the moon and the sun that went very well with the poses. The parents had positive comments on the session, reporting that their children were relaxed, but were surprised how out of shape they felt.
