    Because of a technical repair and replacement needed for the County’s video streaming equipment, there will be no streaming broadcast of tonight’s Council meeting in Chambers. This malfunction only relates to streaming - there will still be a televised broadcast on PAC 8 television, and video capture for later playback on demand should still be available and posted on the County’s website after the meeting.

  • Council discusses CIP projects Tuesday

    On March 1, the Los Alamos County Council will discuss the public input received over seven meetings held in the last two months regarding capital projects, and determine a path forward for selection and funding.

    Council has considered over 14 hours of public comment on a variety of topics and needs related to Quality of Life, Parks & Recreation, Economic Development and Infrastructure.

    The format for Tuesday’s meeting (6 p.m., council chambers) will focus upon creating a final list of projects. That list – which will be created in real time with a spreadsheet calculating spending as projects are selected – will be displayed on the large screen in council chambers for the public to view. Viewers streaming the meeting will also be able to see the screen updated as council makes changes.

    The Council will consider new requests that were brought forward in the last two months, as well as the projects that were already on the list as of the Dec. 8, 2015 council meeting.

    Project supporters are strongly encouraged to have at least one representative available at the March 1 meeting to answer any clarifying questions that council might have during discussions and prioritization of the list.
