    Council meeting

  • Budget hearing odds and ends

    As budget hearings wound down last Wednesday, the Los Alamos County Council considered citizens’ requests and a list of “unmet needs” submitted by various departments.
    Many residents have objected to the decision to discontinue the print version of the county’s newsletter, “The County Line.” Council was ready to reintroduce a printed newsletter for those who prefer it. Councilor Vincent Chiravalle argued for sending a print version to every household with their utility bill and seemed to be under the impression that was how the newsletter was delivered in the past.
    Los Alamos County Public Information Officer Julie Habiger explained what reinstituting a print version would entail.

  • Burgess satisfied with hearings

    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.”
