Discussion for this year’s (FY22) Infrastructure Capital Improvement Plan (ICIP).  The purpose of this meeting was to discuss what we had decided upon as a committee at the April meeting (?).  The focus of discussion was on maintenance of dirt roads (to include blading of the road surface and drainage ditches and associated culverts).

The suggested funds for roads and infrastructure projects in Eldorado, NM for the fiscal year 2022 (FY22) is $400,000.  75% of these funds ($300,000) will be used for the excavation, removal, and replacement of heavily damaged corrugated metal pipes (culverts) with High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) corrugated water drainage pipes, 16” diameter, and associated repair of the driving surface.  The other 25% of these funds ($100,000) will be used for emergency road repair due to extreme weather events.
