Capital projects on the chopping block

-A A +A

The Los Alamos County Council will have a discussion during its Feb. 19 meeting to decide which capital projects approved for design and construction in May 2012 will move forward or be deferred.
The 7 p.m. meeting in council chambers was moved from a work session in White Rock to a regular session in Los Alamos so that the session can be televised.
Due to budget shortfalls, council gave the staff budget guidance on Jan. 29 to defer up to $12.5 million in capital project costs and delay projects up to four years for some of these eight approved projects:
Los Alamos County Administrator Harry Burgess released information about the upcoming Council discussion regarding capital projects.
The only projects that will be considered for deferral are the eight projects approved in May 2012. They are:
• Ashley Pond Park
Improvements
• Teen Center
• Nature Center
• Eastern Area Sound
Wall
• Golf Course improvements
• White Rock Civic Center (as modified)
• Canyon Rim Trail and Ice Rink improvements.
The purpose of the discussion is budgetary— projects will not be revisited during this meeting for a reduction/change in scope of work.
