Working behind the scenes

-A A +A

If the lights are on, the water comes out of the tap and the Christmas goose is cooked, there are workers from the Department of Public Utilities to thank for making the holiday a happy one for county residents. The police and fire departments are ready to respond to emergencies, as they do year-round, but there are less visible county workers that keep everything running behind the scenes.Crews from the electric distribution division are standing by this Christmas holiday.Journeyman electricians Sam Martinez and Eric Sanchez both commute from Taos, so Sanchez will be spending the whole of Christmas week in Los Alamos so that he will be in town if the roads are impassable, and be available if needed.“I’m worried about the storms, so I’ll just stay in town,” Sanchez said Friday.Martinez said that he had worked for the county for seven years.
