County appeals summary judgement

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Los Alamos County has appealed a summary judgment issued July 18 concerning a contract the county has with firefighters volunteering for Paramedic School.

The judgment rendered by Judge Daniel Sanchez in First District Judicial Court said the county had “disregarded its own local ordinance in addition to state and federal law.”

The court’s decision concerns a contract the county has with firefighters volunteering for Paramedic School – a decade old program supported and encouraged by the county.

“The county will pursue an appeal of that decision,” County Attorney Mary McInerny said. “The court’s interpretation of the law resulted in two firefighters being relieved of their contract obligation to repay the cost of their purely voluntary and specialized training.”

At issue, McInerny said in a news release, are contracts entered into between the County and individual firefighters wherein the County pays a selected firefighter’s tuition, travel, per diem and other expenses, as well as their full salary, for as much as one year while they attend the specialized school.
