NM Stat § 3-35-1 (2015) What's This?

3-35-1. Fire-fighting facilities; preliminary plans of contemplated improvement; estimate of cost; assessment plat; provisional order.

The governing body of any municipality, when it believes the municipality requires fire stations, fire hydrants or fire-fighting equipment or water, may, by resolution, direct the city engineer or other competent engineer to prepare preliminary plans of the contemplated improvement and a preliminary estimate of the cost. He shall also submit an assessment plat showing the area to be assessed and the amount of maximum benefits estimated to be assessed against each tract or parcel of land in the assessment area, based on a front-foot zone, area or other equitable basis established by the resolution. The resolution may provide for one or more types of construction and the engineer shall separately estimate the cost of each type, either in a lump sum or by unit prices as the engineer thinks more desirable. The total estimate shall also include cost of advertising, appraising, engineering, printing and other necessary expenses. Upon filing with the municipal clerk, the governing body shall examine them and, if satisfactory, make a provisional order that the work of improvement be done.
