-A A +A

The schools need a reliable revenue stream and new facilities to replace the dark and dingy Quonset huts located along Trinity Drive. The county needs land along Trinity for economic development in the heart of town, to create diversity in the economy and to reduce reliance on the one big employer in the county. The people of Los Alamos need choice in where they shop and more entertainment options to improve the quality of life.Los Alamos County and school board representatives jointly announced that they believe they have reached an agreement for Los Alamos Public Schools to lease their facilities from the county at the Airport Basin site. Assistant County Administrator Tony Mortillaro, who has been negotiating for several months on behalf of the county, and school board member Joan Ahlers, who has negotiated on behalf of Los Alamos Public Schools, held a press conference Thursday to answer questions about the draft agreements.“We are optimistic at this point that we’ve found a solution that works for both the schools and the county,” Mortillaro said.
