Los Alamos County officials told county council Friday they made major headway in two important areas: capital improvement projects and public art.
Anne Laurent, Community and Economic Development Director and Philo Shelton, Public Works Director made the capital improvement projects presentation, updating the council on key projects that included the replacement of concrete and asphalt on 41st, 42nd, 43rd, 44th Streets in Western Area north of Trinity and 43rd Street south of Trinity; the Canada Del Buey Trail extension in White Rock; pavement and concrete repair on Canyon Road to 15th Street; improvements to Ashley Pond; compost site at Bayo Canyon and improvements to N.M. 4.
The most expensive of these projects were the improvements to N.M. 4, the least expensive was the compost project at Bayo Canyon.
The Bayo Canyon project cost taxpayers $800,000, N.M. 4, meanwhile, was $7.2 million.
During the presentation, Shelton added that with all of the projects, the county was able to save anywhere from $34,000 (Ashley Pond Improvements) to $640,000 for the N.M. 4 improvements.
Councilor Pete Sheehey attributed the savings to the hard lessons that learned working on previous projects.
