While U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., is urging New Mexico police departments to apply for Department of Justice grants to help hire new officers, Los Alamos County is weighing all sides of the government’s various stimulus offers.

County Administrator Max Baker said Thursday county staff continues to monitor a growing list of potential infrastructure improvements and programs that span a wide variety of needs throughout the county.

“We’re considering options under the stimulus package which might be a good source to supplement existing capital projects,” Baker said, adding that the county’s focus would be to fund projects that have already been identified in the upcoming FY 10 budget or the county’s long-range financial plan. “We should not let this change our priorities or add services that we cannot support in the future.”

Information about the stimulus package and how local governments may apply for consideration is a “work in progress,” Baker said.
