Has Elephant Butte chose a Name yet for NM 195 ? The sentinel reporting so . True or false
Alan Briley, City Manager: False - Not officially. The Council was in a workshop last meeting and threw some names around and Butte Blvd stuck and was used in discussion.
The City Council will have to officially make a motion and have affirmative action to rename a street. There is a lot to renaming a street with changing maps, emergency dispatch, changing signage; not to mention to have everyone along Highway 195 change all their address information.
Long way to say no or False - the name is not officially changed. And new street name signs have not been ordered.
Stay tuned - we are still accepting ideas and suggestions for names. There is also a possibility that the Council will elect not to change the street name and leave it Highway 195.
Thanks for the question. I did get comments regarding the newspaper and radio article and sent them the same message that I sent here.

I wanted to submit a name for Highway 195 but could not find anyplace to do so. I recommend America Avenue. How do I officially submit this suggestion?
Alan Briley, City Manager: Thank you for your suggestion. This is an appropriate place to make your suggestions, or our Facebook Page, or coming in and telling us. We have also got suggestions in the mail when they pay their utility bills to the City.

What are the ordinance regarding conducting a business from your residential property? If it is pretty obvious that someone is operating a mechanic repair shop from their garage why doesn't the city take action to make sure the property is zoned for... read more »
Alan Briley, City Manager: Dear Resident -
First of all - a disclaimer - when these questions come to me - I am the only one to see them. So if you want to stay anonymous and give addresses - I can edit or redact names, numbers, etc. and you can stay anonymous.
You did not give an address, so I cannot be specific on the cases we are working on. But in general - there are Ordinances that do reference businesses from a residential property. Some things are prohibited and some are allowed with a conditional use hearing and permit.
There are legal permitted "home garages".. There are some illegal - home garages as well. We have had complaints on some of these in the past few weeks and we are diligently working to shut them down or get compliance of some kind.
We need the public to help us with this. We patrol all the streets, but cannot be all places at all times, and we cannot go on private property to 'snoop' around.
You can report these and not give your name, but if we cannot catch them or see them, sometimes we have asked neighbors to testify what they see.
We understand how neighbors get aggravated and we will investigate all complaints if we have addresses. This is why we require that all home businesses going through permit, have a legal hearing that allows all the neighbors to voice their concerns or at least be notified.
We are also concerned about some follow all the rules and pay their taxes, etc, and some don't and it is unfair to all those who follow the rules. And we want to fix that as well...
For a generic response, I apologize, with more specific information I might be able to give more detail.

Was the funding from NMDOT approved for the pavement or chip seal continuation for Elepahnt Butte ? Thank You
Alan Briley, City Manager: Sorry Mike - i havent gotten back with your comment. I am assuming you are talking about the portion of San Mateo between Cristobal and San Andres.
If it is this section you are referring to , yes the funds have been allocated for the project of San Mateo portion, Black Range portion and all of Mescal and Mescal loop.
The engineering agreement to design this project is on the Council agenda today. Once engineering is done, we will have a better idea of the time frame to complete the project.
Funds may only be able to do a portion of the project, and depending on costs, it could be only San Mateo, only Black Range or only Mescal. We might decide to combine with next years funding and do more, later into next year.
Hope this helps.
