Council rejects muncipal building RFP

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

It looks like it’s back to the drawing board for Los Alamos County, as hopes of a new municipal building were squashed last night.

 

The County Council voted 6-0 in favor of rejecting all proposals under RFP No. 2008-1637 and canceling the solicitation with DePonte Investments.

 

Councilors voted in favor of canceling the solicitation with DePonte because of the inability of the proposer (DePonte Investments) to provide sufficient evidence of property ownership of all property at the proposed site and the failure of the proposer to submit to the county an adequate financing commitment with a lender.

 

Council also moved that staff return to the council to discuss further options related to the construction of a municipal building and its location.

 

Problems with the project started in October, when members of the Elks Lodge voted against selling their property on Trinity Drive to DePonte for the purpose of development.
