County Charter Review Committee to be formed

By Special to the Monitor

The deadline for letters of interest for the soon to be appointed “County Charter Review Committee” is quickly approaching. Letters of interest must be received by the county administrator no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 10. Up to nine citizens will be selected at the next council meeting on Nov. 17. The charter has not been reviewed for many years, and the council is interested in hearing recommendations from citizens about what they think should be changed, updated or added to the charter. They hope to have a broad range of the community represented, such as youth, seniors, White Rock and Los Alamos residents, civic organizations, business owners and others.

Applicants wishing to be considered for appointment to the committee are asked to send a one or two-page letter to the council with their name, address, phone number and e-mail address, along with their employer (if applicable) and any civic organizations they belong to. In addition, they are asked to submit information about “why” they would like to serve on the committee. Applicants should plan to be at the Nov. 17 council meeting. They are encouraged to review the video of the council meeting held Nov. 3 where councilors discussed guidance they plan to issue to the committee about the charter review task. The meeting is available using the Video-on-Demand feature on PAC-8’s web page at www.pag8.org. Discussion occurs near the end of the meeting.

Letters may be e-mailed to lacadministrator@lacnm.us or mailed or hand-carried to the county administrator’s office at 133 Central Park Square.
