In Loving Memory of Clorinda R. Mares

Our beloved mother and grandmother, Clorinda R. Mares went home to be with the Lord on April 20, 2016 in Elkhart, Indiana.  She was born in Palo Blanco, New Mexico on September 30, 1922, raised in Springer, New Mexico, and a resident of Raton, New Mexico.

Clorinda is preceded in death by her parents Juan and Petra Romero, her three sons Jesus, Louis, and Juan Quintana, daughter Rose Vela, brother Steve Romero and sisters Fedilia Salazar and Isabelle Garcia, grandchildren Jennifer Contreras, Jonathan Quintana and Joanne Quintana, great-grandchildren Nathan Trujillo, Reina Sarinana, Chuck Quintana Jr., and son-in-law, Frank Gonzales.  Widowed twice, she is preceded in death by first husband Louis Quintana and second husband Ezequiel Mares.

She is survived by daughter Lucy Trujillo (Gilbert), son Carlos Quintana, daughter Mary Jean Strohm (Felix), daughter Rita Reynaga (John), daughter Ramona Gonzales, and son George Quintana (Charlotte); along with numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews; and a beloved sister-in-law Cleo Romero.

Clorinda R MaresClorinda was a member of First Christian Church in Raton, NM.  She served as a deaconess and devoted many years of service in the ministry to reaching the lost and giving hope to others.  Her greatest desire was to fulfill God’s plan for her life.  She was a witness and example to her family, always stressing the importance of loving one another, prayer, and reading your bible.  Anyone who knew her loved her.  She was a kind, loving, and generous person and her family will miss her greatly, but her example and love will live on in our hearts.

A memorial service and celebration of life will be held at First Christian Church in Raton, NM on Saturday, May 28, 2016 at 11:00 AM.

Commissioners Hear More News on Budget

By Marty Mayfield

KRNT Multi-Media

 

The Raton City Commission met on Tuesday, April 26th in regular session, and commissioners heard from City Treasurer Michael Ann Antonucci on the third quarter financial report that showed a decline in gross receipts tax, this time by about 3.3% or $76,712. Antonucci reported more bad news indicating that the small cities assistance fund also fell short of budget, due in large part, to the State’s budget shortfall this year.  As commissioners begin the city’s budget process, Antonucci noted it will be a very tight budget and that cuts might have to be made. City Manager Scott Berry noted that they are hoping for only a 10% increase in health insurance premiums but until they hear from the insurance provider that is only a best guess. (Link to Financial Report March 31 2016)  (Link to Budget Adjustment #9)

The Commission approved $5,000 of Lodger’s Tax contingency funds to go to the Raton Little League for hosting the district tournament. It is expected the tourney will draw several hundred people to Raton for upwards to a week. The funds will be used to print programs, t-shirts, supplies and welcome bags.

Commissioners also approved a mutual aid agreement with Colfax county for law enforcement services. The agreement will commission all 12 city officers to operate in the county when needed. Chief John Garcia noted that will be based on availability of officers while still covering the city.

The solid waste department of the New Mexico Environment Department is asking the city to add a fourth water well to monitor ground water at the land fill. Gordon Environmental will continue the water monitoring and will help close the one well and drill the new one. The estimated cost for the work is about $23,500.

The city will also be seeking bids for soil to cover the landfill so water will drain off the site rather than percolate down through the landfill. Then the Solid Waste Bureau is wanting at least six inches of tope soil cover over the entire site which is 24 acres.

Jason Phillips also asked for approval to extend the three-year contract with Midway Landfill for tipping fees. The State of Colorado is now charging an additional $.10 fee for tipping fees to pay for recycling efforts in the state. Midway has agreed to keeping the 3-year tipping fee as long as they can add the $.10 fee which will make the tipping fee $15.98 for the next year. Phillips also noted that the Solid Waste Bureau would entertain a $225,000 grant application if the city would commit to a $25,000 loan to construct the transfer station. That will give the city $750,000 for the transfer station project. The city has already committed to the $500,000 loan for the transfer station and this will make the monthly payment $1500 which Phillips noted is well within the solid waste rates.

The decision to take over the train depot was once again tabled until more information can be obtained from BNSF about moving some equipment and the electrical costs associated with keeping the equipment in the building. The current electric bill is about $500 a month with the bulk of that cost probably coming from the communications equipment. Berry noted that some remodel work will likely need to be done to make the lobby space more usable since a wall in the building is crimping that space to make room for the communications equipment.

The city had an inspector give a cursory look at the building and he reported that there probably isn’t very much asbestos or lead if any in the building but can’t be 100% sure without samples. The report is based on the age of previous work that has been done.

Pat and Carol Mares asked for an easement for a garage that appears to be extending acros the property line by two feet. The title company is asking for the easement so the couple can purchase the property on La Cueva Street and North First.

Commissioners also approved the cost proposal for repaving the remainder of Tiger Drive from Second Street to the railroad tracks. The cost of the project is estimated at $200,000 with $150,000 from the state the city will include $50,000 from the gas tax to do the project.

Commissioners also approved budget adjustment nine for the city as well as a budget adjustment for CCJJACB. It was noted that one of the boy’s counselors had left and that the money used there was being transferred to the girl’s counselors where they have a bigger load instead of filling the boys position.

City Manager Berry also noted that the Northeast Regional Transportation planning organization will meet at the Sweet Shop on April 27 at 10:00 a.m. and then the Northeast Economic Development will meet at the Sweet shop for 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Everyone who is registered to vote as a Republican or a Democrat in Colfax County can vote early at one of the Mobile sites or in the Clerk’s office on the dates and times listed below:
