-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Los Alamos County’s Environmental Sustainability Board met for the second time on Thursday in the conference room at the County Annex.

With four new members in place, the board met to discuss goals, programs, achievements, and other items such as budget issues and greening work in progress.

At the Aug. 19 County Council work session held in White Rock, the council voted to appoint four new members to the board.

Two were chosen for a two-year term, while the other two were chosen for one-year terms. Those chosen for two-year terms were Grant Stewart and Brooke Davis.

Those chosen for one-year terms were Mark Jones and Mike Steinzig. In addition to the four new members, the board consists of Jean Burow, Larry Warner, Timothy Neal and Staff Liaison Regina Wheeler.

The purpose of the board is to provide community services in a future with high energy prices, resource limitations and increased regulation; realize benefits including energy security, cost control, cleaner air, healthier lifestyles, vibrant community and economic development; achieve council goals, demonstrate community values, build partnerships and brand Los Alamos as an environmental community.

The board replaces the Solid Waste Advisory Board. The ESB’s fiscal 2009 budget is $40,000.
