Two suspects in the Alvarado shooting were involved in another

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – Just months after opening their new headquarters, Bernalillo County is now asking for millions more dollars to expand. However, some district commissioners say the upgrades would just be a waste of money. The county wants to build on its Alvarado Square site with a new logo, bulletproof windows and an expanded health clinic, but it will all cost more than $4 million.

After more than 10 years of construction, Bernalillo County finally moved into its new headquarters in the middle of downtown Albuquerque last summer. Now some officials are already considering pouring another $4 million into the building. One of the proposals — more than $300,000 to paint a 38-foot county seal on the side of the building — didn’t sit well with some commissioners. Another proposal called for millions to replace the existing original windows in the building.
