-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Los Alamos County will soon receive $1,962,217 for the Diamond Drive Phase 3 construction project, thanks to a grant from the federal government.

On Friday, during a special session held in council chambers, county councilors voted to approve a Resolution of Support for use of funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

After a short discussion, the motion made by Council Vice Chair Mike Wismer and seconded by Councilor Vincent Chiravalle, passed 4-0. Councilors Nona Bowman, Robert Gibson and Ralph Phelps were absent.

Resolution No. 09-08 is required for the county to receive awarded American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Funds in the amount of $1,962,217 to offset costs associated with Diamond Drive Phase 3 construction. The resolution was published, as required, on May 14. The method of funding is through a New Mexico Department of Transportation Cooperative Agreement.

Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman said Friday afternoon that there are no specific aspects to the project for which this money will be used. “There’s nothing identified. It’ll just be used to fund part of the project,” he said.
