Angel Fire Voters Say Yes To General Obligation Bonds

Angel Fire, NM, September 14, 2016 – The $4.5 million General Obligation Bond for improvements to the Village roads and water and wastewater systems was approved by voters on September 13, 2016, sending a clear message that the public, undoubtedly, is supportive of infrastructure improvements to the Village of Angel Fire.

The votes were canvassed on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 by Village Clerk, Terry Cordova and a canvassing committee. Results of the canvass were as follows:

1. Shall the Village of Angel Fire issue up to $3 million of general obligation bonds for the purpose of improving municipal streets and roads?

Yes = 273, No = 85

2. Shall the Village of Angel Fire issues up to $1.5 million of general obligation bonds for the purpose of improving the Village’s water and wastewater system?

Yes = 256, No = 73

Now that the bond issues have passed, an engineering study will be conducted by HDR, the Village engineering consultants, to give an overall view of the needs of the Village, set priorities for the water system, wastewater plant and road upgrades, and begin to implement the program. It is important to note that the construction will be managed by HDR, the company that was the lead engineer for the recent PID construction. The Village staff will manage HDR. Most of the construction will be performed by experienced contractors.

There will another election in three years to renew the program and issue a further $4.5 million with no increase in taxes. This pattern of elections will occur every three years until the project is complete. If the voters disapprove at any election point, the program will end and taxes will revert back to current tax levels. The total project for improvements is expected to be $31.5 million and will take twenty years to complete.
