Talk of strained relations between the schools and county over Trinity Site negotiations appeared to settle down during a school board meeting Thursday evening at Chamisa Elementary School.
“I think the county and schools are very much in alignment on all business points … and some people’s perception of things is not correct at all,” County Administrator Max Baker said.
Board member Alison Beckman responded to Baker saying she’s been involved in the project since the beginning.
“I feel the county council is working with us but I have to state that the last round of documents that came to us were really different and they started to stray from our original intent,” she said, adding for that reason she feels a resolution detailing the school’s business points is important.
Rumblings of a rift between the entities surfaced at a school board meeting earlier this month. Beckman said at that meeting that she wanted to stop reading the latest county documents on the project because they were not in keeping with the original intent.
After other board members expressed concern, the board decided to call a joint meeting with county council. That meeting was scaled back to a couple of representatives from each side and took place Feb. 16.
