Aztec City Commissioners met for a half-hour workshop before their regular meeting on March 14. The purpose of the workshop was to review with commissioners the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) projects for the summer of 2017 and 2018. For the summer of 2017, the projects will include landscaping around the Family Center/Community Center on near the library on Llano. Old landscaping will be removed and new xeriscaping will be added. The YCC will also work to extend irrigation and landscaping from Hartman Park along Llano and Navajo Ave.

The 2018 projects will include work in Minium Park, around the memorial rose garden and near the river by the new walking bridge leading to Aztec Ruins.

Shade and benches will be built around the splash park and playground in Minium Park; landscaping will be done around the old rose garden area, including lighting and a new concrete pad for the RV dump station; and a parking lot, picnic tables, and a ramp into the river for rafters on the east side of the river will be installed.

At the regular meeting, commissioners voted 5-0 to approve three different “Intent to adopt Ordinances.” The first eliminated golf course fees charged by the city to allow the operator to set his own fees. The second was to approve fees for the use of the HUB Incubator, which were discussed previously; and the third was to make amendments to Governance policies discussed at a workshop held on March 1.

A request for a waiver from Michael Morrison to open a new tattoo business at 111 W. Chaco was also approved by a 5-0 vote. “Tattoo shops aren’t what they used to be,” commented Mayor Sally Burbridge. The waiver is required because there is a residence upstairs in the building, and the regulations states that no body art establishment shall be located within 300 feet of a private or public school, church or residence. There were no complaints, and the waiver was approved.
