Why is this measure important?

Additional Information

  1. Article IX of the State of NM Constitution generally prohibits public funding to be used for private gain, hence the requirement for local government ownership of the capital improvement and/or equipment requested by a non-governmental agency when they seek capital outlay funding.
  2. Bernalillo County annually evaluates if accepting an appropriation and owning a capital improvement and/or equipment, on behalf of and to be used by a non-governmental agency, fits within the Bernalillo County Strategic Plan. The County considers the ongoing, long-term operational and maintenance budget impact of owning a capital improvement and/or equipment before making the commitment to the non-governmental agency and the State of NM Department of Finance and Administration.
  3. Bernalillo County annually holds a workshop in the spring for non-governmental agencies where all aspects of capital outlay funding are explained. This workshop is intended to get agencies to understand capital outlay requirements, to think critically about their needs, and how well their needs are planned before asking Bernalillo County to accept and administer funding on their behalf.
