The Los Alamos County Council took stock of the present and began preparing for the future during a strategic planning session held Friday and Saturday in the Los Alamos Research Park.
Council Chair Mike Wismer said that Friday was spent talking about the governance model and what the relationship between the council and the administrator should be. He added the council also discussed key issues that the council will face in the upcoming year.
Some of the key issues identified during the sessions, he said, included economic development, delivery of services, possible fluctuation in revenues due to taxes and gross receipts tax and infrastructure.
Also, because there will be new councilors on board in January, Wismer said the current council talked about operating styles for the new council.
He explained the discussion on operating styles focused how to develop strategic thinking and study sessions to discuss policies. In the future, Wismer said, there will be a few more study session for issues. The sessions will be purely for discussions and decisions will be made later, he said.
During the second day, Wismer said each department head gave presentations about the current structure in their respective area and the challenges they see in the future.
