Los Alamos used to describe itself as a “temp town, here at the behest of the federal government,” County Administrator Max Baker said Thursday morning. But, he said he hadn’t heard that said in about 10 years.
“The county and the community has decided we’re here for real,” Baker said.”We need to take charge of our destiny.”
Baker gave his third state of the county report to a cordial breakfast meeting of the Chamber of Commerce. He structured his report around the proposed regrouping of the county’s strategic goals and objectives into five categories, set for approval in Tuesday’s regular council meeting.
He credited the council’s wisdom in developing a strategic plan for having given a focus and long-range direction to county government.
In a 40-minute talk Baker gave a view of county business from a fairly high altitude, drilling down to a number of details along the way.
The first goal, for example, is to “stick to our knitting,” as Baker phrased it: maintaining “the quality of routine services and supporting infrastructure, as it is formally expressed.”
