The Artesia City Council received reports from each city department Tuesday and passed a resolution to publicly show further support for 7024U, a program currently in the works to help at-risk youth in Artesia.
The resolution the council passed was “a show of the council’s support for the 7024U program, indicating that once funding can be secured to assure the city that this is a program that can sustain itself, the council would consider them for the use of the old police station.” … For the rest of the story, subscribe in print and on the web.
“Once funding is secured for the program, then the city would enter into a negotiation regarding a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and that building,” Mayor Phillip Burch said. “I think the intent of the resolution is to say we fully support the program, and we’re behind those organizations that are supporting the program so that they can go out with some degree of accuracy and indicate to the public that they have the City Council’s support of the project. And once they have financial support from the community, they can go ahead and discuss the building and what the terms are, etc.”
