Los Alamos County is done with its budget hearings for another year. The hearings related to the proposed biennial budget for FY 2010 concluded Tuesday night in council chambers.
The Tuesday meeting had been tentatively scheduled in case talks did not wrap up on April 23. During last night’s meeting, budgets for the Public Works Department, as well as the Administrative Services budget, were discussed.
In addition, financial policies and a request for funding from UNM-LA were also discussed.
During his presentation to council on the Public Works budget, Chief Financial Officer Steven Lynne said that the biggest change was an addition of $300,000 for the transportation master plan.
“That’s the biggest variance,” he said. “The transit fund is consistent with the transit master plan. We will add two new administrative positions and five operator positions.”
Lynne also said the county will start receiving money from the North Central Regional Transit system in the fall and that money will be used for expanded service. However, he also said that if the amount of money is significantly different from what they are expecting, the expansion will not occur.
