Should something you want be placed beside something you need?
Los Alamos County employees posed this question in regards to the capital improvement project (CIP) process. County councilors wondered the same thing.
During the regular council meeting Tuesday, councilors recommended that Rick Bohn, Community Development director, look into including two parallel processes for CIP.
County Council Chair Mike Wismer explained to the Monitor the council was interested in considering two processes – one for county-driven projects and another process for citizen-driven projects.
Wismer said in the current CIP cycle, the White Rock community is working on a visitor center. In the same process, the deteriorating and unsafe clubhouse at the Los Alamos Golf course is being addressed.
Wismer said the idea is to take existing methods for capital planning and build on that.
Bohn said there will be gray areas between the processes. The council will exercise discretion if a project has a great interest and importance to the community.
There was also some discussion to look further into the cost threshold for projects in the CIP process. Bohn said the current threshold is $50,000. It was suggested to raise the amount to $447,559.
