In January, the city of Las Vegas lost $1.2 million for water projects because of confusion over what the state money was for.
More than a week ago, Gov. Bill Richardson signed a bill for water projects, including the $1.2 million that the city had lost, according to a city press release. The funding comes through the Water Trust Board, an arm of the New Mexico Finance Authority.
The press release states that the $1.2 million is for water storage, conveyance and delivery system improvements for the city.
