“Improvement” was the theme of the recent workshop for the Elephant Butte City Council, held Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 1 p.m., at the current City Hall location on Water Street.
The council members discussed the local naming of State Highway 195, with the goal of involving Elephant Butte residents in the process.
Mayor Eunice Kent and council members developed the first stages of the previously discussed project for involving its residents in providing feedback to city staff and elected officials.
As such, the staff and council members opted for a simplified version of the memo-board, originally reported by The Herald. For the purpose of naming Highway 195, the city will request residents to drop off their suggested name to a lockbox, which is currently still in the process of being setup at time of print.
For additional information, the city has suggested residents direct their inquiries to City Hall, which can be reached at (575) 744-4892.
Also in the process of development is the renovation of the newly acquired building next to the current Elephant Butte City Hall on Water Street. Previously reported on June 11 by The Herald, the city purchased the location earlier in the year with the plan to expand its offices. The new building will allow for the city to house its growing staff.
