Miami — The Town of Miami’s new sewage treatment plant is going full steam ahead following a ribbon cutting ceremony held last week. Mayor Rosemary Castaneda reported that there were “lots of dignitaries” at the ribbon cutting and it was an opportunity to demonstrate to various grant and funding sources that “our staff has extensive knowledge” about the intricacies of operating the system.
Castaneda went on to praise the town’s wastewater advisory board for its diligence. “We are grateful for the many eyes that are looking at this,” she said.
The council tabled action to appoint Miami Genesis Inc. as managers of the newly remodeled Bullion Plaza Gym. With council members Robert Baeza, Mike Black and Sammy Gonzales absent, the council had a scant quorum of only four people.
Both Castaneda and Vice Mayor Susan Hanson are members of Genesis, so they would have had to recuse themselves from making any decisions. Only Councilmen Don Reiman and Darryl Dalley would have been left, which would not have allowed a decision-making quorum.For the complete article see the 02-05-2014 issue.
