Squires to be honored by council

ALAMOSA — The Alamosa City Council meeting is scheduled for tonight at 7 p.m. with several items on the agenda.

Sgt. Squires will be honored with a Lifesaving Award for acting quickly the afternoon when Miguel “Rosco” Hurtado was injured in a motorcycle accident. Squires applied a tourniquet to Hurtado’s leg to stop the bleeding. The council will also sign a proclamation for San Luis Pride Day

The two vacancies on the Alamosa Housing Authority and the board interviewed Josef Lucero, Irene Marquez and Jason Vigil.

Also, up for consideration is the first reading of an ordinance that will allow the City of Alamosa and the Colorado State Patrol to enter into an Intergovernmental Agreement to provide Reverse 911 calls and Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) alerts. Both systems would alert residents affected by an incident at no additional charge to the city.

According to the agenda, there is also the request for a motion “authorizing the City Manager to accept ownership of Locomotive 169 and the B1 from the Alamosa Chamber of Commerce.” Actually, it is for the city manager to accept the locomotive on behalf of the city.
