The City of Gallup discussed a budget increase for the Church Rock Lighting Extension Project at the Oct. 9 regular meeting.

Gallup Fire Department Chief Eric Babcock spoke for the item. He requested approval for an increase of $90,000 to fund project change orders, with $25,000 of that amount set aside for project contingencies.

“[I want to] get this job done and some lights on those streets,” Babcock said during the meeting, adding this is one of many projects he’d like to tend to.

Contractor Murphy Builders, Inc. will install approximately 8,100 linear feet of two-and-a-half-inch conduits, quadruplex aluminum conductors, over two dozen 30-foot-tall street lights and two 200-amp services.

The total estimated increase to the original $115,000 budgeted for the project is $65,000 to be funded through the existing Enterprise Fund Balance, plus $25,000 set aside for project contingencies.

Babcock said, with approval, the project would begin early November.

The item was approved with a 5-0-0 vote.
