Dona Ana County to Build New Maintenance Facility

August 25, 2011

LAS CRUCES, NM - Dona Ana County Board of Supervisors approved August 23 a competitive sealed bid for the construction of a new maintenance facility.

The County currently has two facilities, one for the Sheriff's Office and one for all other vehicles. The new facility will replace the general maintenance facility, but should also be able to take in excess work the other facility, according to Jess Williams, director of public information for the County.

Plans for construction have not yet been revealed.

The Las-Cruces Sun News reported the project will cost $3.37 million.

    Why would any city spend over 3Mil on a new service centre

    when they could purchase a closed New car dealership which

    would be central to all for away less money and have everything

    they need to open with one month.

    because a "new car" facility would not have the necessary elements needed to maintain a variety of equipment; to include graders, loaders, off road water tanks, mobile service equipment, semi's not to mention automobiles and of course the necessary environmental prerequisites of a shop.
