The local senior center is suffering a shortfall in its budget, and it is seeking the help of the city government.
Last September, Ser de New Mexico, an Albuquerque-based group, took control of San Miguel County’s three senior centers from the state hospital. The centers are in Las Vegas, San Miguel and Pecos.
Theresa Lopez, the director of the centers, said they ran a deficit of $62,000 in May. “For June, we’re running on no money. We’ve been holding a few fundraisers to supplement the budget,” she said.
