Commissioner Wayne Johnson encourages the community to shop local this holiday season, which will create jobs and help small businesses, the backbone of the economy in New Mexico.
Commissioner Johnson’s announcement at Bigglesnorts Toys in the Northeast Heights on Nov. 27 highlighted the positive impact of shopping locally: The money stays in the community, creates and maintains jobs, and supports families.
Commissioner Wayne Johnson kicks off Bernalillo County’s 2013 Shop Local for the Holidays Campaign just before the biggest retail season of the year.
Bernalillo County is proud to support small businesses, which are the main job creators and backbone of the local economy.
From creating jobs to investing in our community, Bernalillo County’s small businesses are the heart and soul of our economy.
Bernalillo County is diverse in its beauty - and it's also diverse in its weather conditions. What could be a beautiful day in the South Valley could be a snow-packed day in the East Mountains or other areas. Beginning in Nov. 2013, we will be providing a new way to get information to county residents about inclement road conditions.
“When the temperatures drop, the East Mountain and canyon areas feel it the most, both at home and on the road,” says Commissioner Wayne Johnson. “Now is the time to plan ahead and prepare in advance.”
On Oct. 10, 2013, the Bernalillo County Fire Department (BCFD) and the Albuquerque Fire Department (AFD) began full implementation of an automatic aid agreement within the metro area that allows the closest fire station to respond to fires or medical calls, regardless of jurisdiction.
Bernalillo County is offering a new service to assist residents on well water systems who have poor quality drinking water. The CONNECT pilot loan program helps residents with financing the cost of connecting their homes to municipal water lines.
