Harry Burgess found his first budget hearings as Los Alamos county administrator very familiar.
“It’s not all that different from place to place,” Burgess said. “It’s always a balancing act. There are always more needs and desires than resources.”
By and large, Burgess was pleased with the outcome.
“Overall, I thought the process went well. We accomplished pretty much what we wanted within the time allowed. We are still within the proposed budget; we still have a plan to continue to provide the same level of service - something very important in this climate - and not reduce staff.”
