Policy discussions topped the council agenda on Tuesday, with topics ranging from the county’s capital improvement program and long-range financial plan, to an official county stand on the Department of Energy’s plan to transform the nuclear complex, including the production of pits at Los Alamos.Council decided in a 6-to-0 vote to send a letter to the document manager for the DOE, Theodore A. Wyka. The letter comments specifically on the Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement issued by the National Nuclear Security Administration and the DOE in December.It states that council endorses the preferred alternative for Los Alamos National Laboratory as described in the SPEIS, Sec. S 3.17A.“Los Alamos County hereby expresses its strong support for LANL, whose most significant contributions to the nation lie not in the past but in the future,” the letter continues.Councilors wanted to have the letter in place with the DOE before a series of five public meetings begins next week. The public comment period on the SPEIS ends on April 10.Of five public meetings during the week of Mar. 10 through 14, two are planned for Los Alamos: from 6-10 p.m. Wednesday, March 12, and from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. March 13.
