Interested applicants are asked to mail or hand-deliver their letter to Los Alamos County Administrator Harry Burgess in the new Municipal Building at 1000 Central, Suite 350 in Los Alamos.
The council has placed discussion of this item and the letters received by the deadline on its Aug. 13 meeting agenda. Applicants must attend that meeting at 7 p.m. in council chambers (inside the Municipal Building in Los Alamos) and should be prepared to answer questions from the council about their letter of interest and qualifications.
The unexpired term for the position ends Dec. 31, 2014.
