SANTA FE (AP) — Santa Fe Mayor David Coss is urging the Los Alamos National Laboratory to analyze and properly dispose of its nuclear waste.

He’s also calling on the New Mexico Environment Department to disallow the creation of a permanent nuclear waste dump.

Coss is chairman of the regional coalition of Los Alamos National Laboratory Communities.

Los Alamos’ proposed remedial plan allegedly leaves nuclear waste buried in pits and trenches at the laboratory’s Area G.

That’s a 63-acre site that started accepting radioactive and hazardous wastes in 1957.

It’s located 18 miles from the Santa Fe Plaza, west of the residential community of White Rock and five miles from the Buckman Well Field near the Rio Grande.

Coss will ask the City Council for approval of his resolution at a Dec. 11 meeting.

Re: Coss wants proper disposal of nuclear waste

In all seriousness, David Coss is a serious nut case who somehow managed to become mayor of Santa Fe. During his mayoral term the city of Santa Fe has declined substantially in economic terms, due in part to Coss's designation of the city as a "sanctuary city", thereby enabling literally thousands of illegal immigrants to flock to the city and live off the government, plus his refusal to do anything about the hundreds of transients who reside in Santa Fe. Such folks live largely by panhandling, selling drugs, and collecting revenue from the clueless Feds.

Coss is a complete disaster, and his advice should be ignored by all.
