The Tuesday evening county council meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. at the Community Building, and the proceedings will be televised on PAC-8.

The results of a recent lamonitor.com online poll show that 85.6 percent of respondents are opposed to the proposed electricity rate hike, yet there was no citizen opposition voiced when the Board of Utilities considered the measure at its meeting several weeks ago.

Aside from the question regarding whether to proceed with an electricity rate increase of 10 percent, the council also has a public hearing set to finalize the addition of 11 questions for voters to consider on the November ballot that would amend various sections of the county charter.

Other items on the agenda for councilors Tuesday include consideration of a joint powers agreement that would establish a Regional Coalition of LANL Communities that would include Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Espanola, and Taos.
