Council OKs service projects

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

It’s that time of year when many service contracts come before Los Alamos County Council for renewal.

Following detailed discussion at its regular Tuesday meeting in the Community Building, council approved those services - all but one - unanimously. Councilors Nona Bowman and Mike Wheeler were out of town.

One change was made to the services provided in this year’s general services agreement for PAC 8 Television, which televises council and other important meetings and community broadcasts.

The county has eliminated the television show, “County Forum” based on input from residents that they prefer to see more programming about county projects or issues of interest beyond a studio environment.

Council Chair Jim Hall brought up the channel's poor reception. “I fully support PAC 8..., but the public deserves proper reception,” he said.

Councilor Jim West mentioned he lives in Barranca Mesa and the reception has been terrible. Councilor Ken Milder explained that PAC 8’s website is clear, which means the problem is with Comcast.

PAC 8 Executive Director Jean Gindreau explained the frustration she has felt with the reception problem, especially during the last five months.
