Turnout was good and expectations were high at the Tuesday night County Council meeting in White Rock. Young and old, supporters and opponents turned out for a chance to defend their views on the skate park location near Mesa Public Library.
And after it was all over, the council voted 6-1 to not take any further action, leaving the project at the library to proceed.
Dozens of concerned residents from White Rock and Los Alamos packed into council chambers to find out whether the skate park issue would be put on the Nov. 4 ballot.
What was supposed to be a discussion about a referendum quickly turned into an outcry for and against the library location.
The council meeting started out as usual, with council asking for public comment.
Los Alamos resident Morris Pongrantz mentioned a couple of events being held to raise money for the United Way Youth Campaign. Dinner over Diamond will be held on Sept. 7, while hamburger night at the Hill Diner will be held on Oct. 7.
Pongrantz also asked council to consider lowering taxes, claiming Los Alamos County taxes are triple the rate of Santa Fe County taxes.
The council then moved on to approving the minutes from the July 22 and July 29 council meeting
Councilor Nona Bowman moved to approve the minutes, which was seconded by Councilor Frances Berting.
