Some CIP applications put on hold

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

County councilors’ discussion at their last budget hearing focused on Capital Improvement Projects. Tonight they will switch gears and focus on departments’ operating budgets.

It has been said before that the county spends money freely where capital projects are concerned. In fact, the cost of some CIP projects, such as the Judicial/Police/Jail Complex, have gone up in price, a move that some residents disagree with.

One such resident is Jerry Beery who, at the last budget hearing, spoke out to council regarding his concerns with the county’s spending.

“We shouldn’t be spending at that rate. We’re digging a hole for future generations,” he commented. He continued to discount the possibility of the Trinity Site project coming to fruition.

“Boyer will never sign on. They won’t get the funding to do it.”

Despite Beery’s concerns, a good portion of the CIP projects were approved, albeit tentatively.

Members of the Los Alamos Pony Club also attended the meeting and spoke briefly to councilors about why they needed a covered arena at the horse stables. Despite their comments, the covered arena will have to wait a bit longer.
