Since the freezing of state capital outlay money what steps has the city taken to access the money?
On October 30, 2009 the City of Tucumcari received a memo from the Department of Finance and Administration outlining the reporting requirements for all capital outlay projects. This reporting had to be done and submitted to the separate funding agencies by November 13, 2009. The city had to prove that it had contracts in place for nine of its current projects. With the contracts obligating most of the capital outlay grants the city has received; we now have to await approval from the funding agencies to see if the contracts will be honored and new agreements issued.
