With his call of heads, Executive Director Cedric Page ensured UNM-Los Alamos would get top billing on the ballot for the Feb. 2 joint election with Los Alamos Public Schools. Council Chair Michael Wheeler flipped the coin for Page and LAPS Superintendent Gene Schmidt at Tuesday’s county council meeting.
UNM-LA Advisory Board Chair Marie Chiravalle and LAPS Business Manager John Wolf joined Schmidt and Page at the meeting and spoke to the importance of the upcoming election for both educational institutions.
Councilors approved 5-0 the resolution supporting the joint election for which the college will ask voters to approve a new mill levy and the school district will ask for a continued referendum.
Councilors Michael Wismer and Vincent Chiravalle recused themselves because of conflicts of interest. Wismer serves on the UNM-LA Advisory Board and Chiravalle’s mother chairs it.
Council also unanimously approved the execution of a lease agreement with the schools for various buildings at the Airport Basin.
In a separate vote, councilors approved 7-0, the conveyance of property in the 800 and 900 block of Trinity to the schools. There’s been some unrest about the county and schools exchanging eight acres of land on Trinity Drive for 24 acres on DP Road.
