Why should you care about updating County Charter Article V

-A A +A

Are you aware that a group of volunteer citizens govern a county enterprise that generates more than $60 million in annual revenues, responsible for assets that cost more than $280 million to acquire and would probably cost $400-500 million to replace? That’s the role of the Los Alamos Board of Public Utilities as defined in County Charter Article V.
We’re fortunate to have some very capable and dedicated people on the board today. Their responsibilities are significant and require time and commitment in return for nothing more than the pleasure of serving the community.
Stepping back and looking at the organizational structure of the enterprise as defined in Charter Article V, one realizes that the board exercises broad authority with very little accountability to the county council or the voters. With respect and gratitude for today’s board members, the Los Alamos citizens need to consider whether this organizational structure best serves the community going forward.
