Weekly Village Update

  1. For the Week of August 7

    This week in the Village...
    • Village streets staff pumped remaining water out of storm water retention pond at School of Dreams Academy, and swept up dirt and debris on Main Street, NM 314 to Morris Road, Grant, Hillside, Desert Willow, Canal, Socorro, Capital, Pecos, and all of Valley View. There was a lot of sand and gravel from the recent storm that passed though Los Lunas.
    • The Village is reviewing a Composting Study prepared by Molzen Corbin consulting engineers. A composting facility at the Transfer Station would primarily function as a means for converting green waste (plants, trees, etc.) from the Village and brown waste (waste sludge or biosolids) from the Wastewater Treatment Plant into Class A biosolids for use as a soil amendment on Village-owned parks and other properties.
    • All recycle bins have been transferred to the new Recycle Center from their previous location. We can now close the new center when staff empties and replaces the bins with fresh empty bins. This process takes about an hour, and makes it much safer and easier not to have to maneuver around users of the facility.
  2. For the Week of July 31

    • The Village of Los Lunas hosted and participated in the annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive and National Night Out at Daniel Fernandez Park on Tuesday, August 1st.
