Budget hike recommended for proposed leisure pool

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

The recreational offerings in Los Alamos could include a leisure pool.
But before any ground gets broken, more funds are required to study this proposed capital improvement project (CIP).
As a result, CIP Oversight and Evaluation Committee recommended that Los Alamos County Council approve an additional $50,000 to the phase one study budget. The recommendation was made during the committee’s meeting Tuesday.
The original budget was $50,000 so the additional funds would bring the total budget to $100,000. The additional funds would come from the unused money from the golf course clubhouse CIP.
Planner Bryan Aragon said the additional $50,000 would cover employee costs for the project managers. The original $50,000 is being used to cover consultant fees.
Capital Projects and Facilities Department Director Anne Laurent added because multiple sites are being evaluated for the pool, soil or geo-technical studies may be needed to accurately compare the costs of the site options.
Currently, a survey is being conducted to gather the public’s input on this project. The survey was mailed out Nov. 9 – the objective is to get 400 responses.
