Baker reviews 2007

Max Baker is the county administrator for Los Alamos County, whose job it is to oversee the implementation of all of the policy decisions of the county council, coordinate projects and oversee the daily operations of County staff. Surrounded by boxes in his temporary office in 133 Central Park Square, where the office was moved after the Municipal Building was vacated, Baker reviewed the past year.

As Baker gave an overview of the county’s achievements in the year 2007, and listed the emptying out of the county’s administrative building as one of his least favorite achievements. “It had to be done,” Baker said, in view of the fact that the building has been declared a hazardous structure.

“The highlights of the year for me were the White Rock Fire Station, the wastewater treatment plant, and the Diamond Drive Phase I projects. They were all completed on time and within budget parameters. These were big projects, with very good results," Baker said. “Money left at the end of those projects gets reprogrammed into other projects,” Baker said.
