President Joe Biden

President Joe Biden will be coming to Valencia County Wednesday afternoon to discuss the Inflation Reduction Act’s action to combat the climate crisis and unleash a clean energy and manufacturing boom.

Biden will travel to New Mexico and make his way to the Arcosa Wind Towers facility in the Rio Grande Industrial Park south of Rio Communities.
Earlier this year, Arcosa Wind Towers announced it would be moving into the old Keter facility.

The Belen City Council unanimously approved a resolution spelling out its intent of issuing taxable industrial revenue bonds not to exceed $65 million for Arcosa.

The councilors also unanimously approved another resolution directing the city clerk to publish a notice of intent to consider an ordinance approving the Arcosa Wind Towers, Inc., proposal for economic development project under the Local Economic Development Act. That agreement will be between the company, the city and the state.

While a presidential candidate, George W. Bush visited Bosque Farms Elementary on Oct. 20, 2000.
