UNM-LA site plan, budget and Trinity top agenda

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

All seven county councilors turned out on an icy evening for a work session on Tuesday, where budget guidance, the scope of construction on Diamond Drive and RV storage were the topics placed on the agenda weeks ago. A last-minute addition to council’s agenda was the recommendation to place a barrier fence around the Municipal Building.In response to a letter the county received from the Design Group about the condition of the Municipal Building, council adopted the recommendation that a fence be installed around the 40-year-old building. The letter from architect Gregory Hartman, of the firm hired to assess the condition of the building, states,  “John A. Martin and Associates (engineering firm) believes the Los Alamos County’s decision to vacate the structure was excellent. Due to the potential for collapse, we are also recommending that some form of barrier be placed around the building until such time as the hazard is removed by repair or demolition.” “We hired this company to get a third opinion about the condition of the Municipal building,” Milder said.
