FARMINGTON — San Juan County will discuss a historic bridge in Cedar Hill and infrastructure improvements for the water system that serves the Harvest Gold subdivision during its 4 p.m. meeting Tuesday at the County Administration Building, 100 S. Oliver Dr. in Aztec.

The county has been evaluating an old truss bridge that has been used as a pedestrian path up until the county closed it this year. The bridge has several safety problems, including being anchored into a rock that is cracking. It also has several holes in it.

Residents have asked the county to repair and reopen the bridge as a pedestrian path that connects the community of Cedar Hill. The commission will hear a report about the bridge.

The county is also discussing infrastructure improvements needed in the Harvest Gold subdivision. The county has dedicated $500,000 of capital outlay funding it received from the state to make the improvements in conjunction with the Apple Orchard Mutual Domestic Water Users Association.

Farmington City Council will have a work session at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the executive conference room at City Hall, 800 N. Municipal Dr. The council will hear an application from Los Hermanitos restaurant for a liquor license. 

Aztec Municipal School District School Board will meet at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday in Aztec High School's multi-purpose room. The meeting will include special recognition due to the school shooting on Dec. 7, as well as a special presentation from the Talon, according to the meeting agenda.
