FARMINGTON — San Juan County Commission will consider a lease agreement with the Navajo Nation for use of the Huerfano Substation. The county completed the $511,000 law enforcement substation in 2010 about 30 miles south of Bloomfield.

The commission meets at 4 p.m. Dec. 3 at the county administrative building located at 100 S. Oliver Drive in Aztec.

In addition to discussing the lease agreement, the County Commission may choose to repeal an ordinance banning youth from being in public places without a parent or guardian between certain hours.

The halls of the Huerfano substation are pictured in January 2013.

This ordinance was adopted in 1994 and, according to The Daily Times archives, it prohibited people younger than 16 from being in public from 10:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. without supervision. Under the ordinance, teenagers between 16 and 18 years of age are prohibited from being in public unsupervised from 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 12:30 to 5 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, according to archives.
