The Aztec City Commissioners met on March 28, beginning at 5 pm with a workshop to discuss the annual work plan for 2018. City Manager Josh Ray began the meeting by telling commissioners, “We want to have a plan to move forward with the budget process.”

Some of the major plays for the end of 2017 and first half of 2018 include work on the North Main extension, which will include a bus stop, streets and medians; and work at the airport, which is scheduled to be completed by July 1, 2017.

Other items discussed as needs in the city include a plan for keeping streets clean (street sweepers), street maintenance (pothole repair, striping, etc.) police department staffing for better presence on the streets and in school zones, completing the utility rate study, and an economic development strategy. One item listed as high priority was connecting several areas to the city sewer lines. Mr. Ray said these areas were annexed and still need to be connected.

During the regular meeting, the only item listed as business was the final adoption of the ordinance to set solid waste rates. Under the ordinance, residential customers who have one 96 gallon cart picked up once a week will see no change in their monthly utility bill, but will have the option of paying more for having their cart emptied twice a week. Business customers will see a slight increase. The amounts of the increase will be based on the size of the dumpsters and the frequency of pick-ups.

Commissioners also approved Miranda Revesz to be included on the library advisory board as a member at large.

The next regular meeting of the City Commission is scheduled for April 11, beginning at 6 pm.
