On July 24th, NMAA will host a workshop for acequias who are interesting in developing an Infrastructure Capital Improvement Plan. The purpose of the ICIP planning process is to help local governments develop 5-year planning timelines for improving infrastructure including identification of infrastructure priorities and possible funding sources. The Local Government Division of the Department of Finance and Administration highly encourages local governments to complete an ICIP prior to requesting Capital Outlay appropriations from their legislators.
The workshop will take place on July 24th in Santa Fe at the State Capitol from 9am through 12 noon. For more information about the workshop call the NMAA office at 995-9644 or contact Janice Varela directly at 231-7752 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For acequias who are seeking information about a current construction project already funded, contact Ray Acosta at the Interstate Stream Commission at 1-800-WATERNM. The ISC staff will provide information about how to access your capital outlay funds including compliance with certain requirements of state government and developing a work agreement, or contract, between the ISC and your acequia.
