Open letter to the County Commission:
Just recently, the San Miguel County Public Works Department, along with my company, completed a job in San Ignacio, which included road repair involving the placement of culverts and base material. In order to get the most of out of most of the limited funds for the project, County Manager Les W. Montoya and Public Works Supervisor Harold Garcia agreed to use county employees to place the base material and culverts while my company would supply the base material.
Upon discussion between Les, Harold and myself, we agreed that in addition to supplying the base material I myself would assist the county employees in placing the culverts by helping with the direction of the project.
It was also agreed upon that the project would be done on a weekend, therefore, not interfering with normal county work.
I desired to relay to you that the county employees and the detention center work crew are to be commended. I was really impressed with the leadership skills of the blading crew foreman, Joseph Roybal. I was also truly impressed with the hard and outstanding work of the equipment operators Toby Medina, Nash Roybal, Juan Vigil, James Lopez, not to mention the hard work and cooperation of the detention center work crew.
In addition, I just wanted to state that the success of the project was also due largely in part to the qualitative communication Les and Harold had with me throughout the weekend in facilitating the project.
