  • Radiation monitoring flyovers set for this week--updated with more info

     The National Nuclear Security Administration plans this week to complete a high-fidelity aerial survey of Los Alamos town site, a dual-step project initiated last fall.
    The survey began Monday and will through Wednesday night. The county release indicated that the NNSA is conducting flights to do aerial radiation surveys over LANL property and the townsite. Residents may notice the silver and blue Bell 412 helicopter flying overhead.

  • Competing agendas vie over future of CMRR

    Analyzing what’s happening in Washington when it comes to funding environmental cleanup at Los Alamos National Laboratory and funding for the Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement can be somewhat of a tricky proposition.

    It seems everybody has their own agenda.

    Last week, the House of Representatives passed its version of the FY13 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill.

    The bill would earmark $215 million for cleanup at Los Alamos National Laboratory and there would be no funding for the CMRR project.

    Congressmen Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) and Martin Heinrich both voted for the measure.

  • Regional Coalition narrows search

    The Regional Coalition of LANL Communities sent out a Request for Proposal (RFP) for its executive director position. And at Friday’s meeting in Los Alamos, four bids were announced.

    Those applying include the Motiva Corp, MVM Group, Than Powi, N.M., LLC and Montoya Consulting. Names of individuals were not made available to the press.

    “All four want to be the executive director and they will be interviewed,” said Los Alamos County Council chair Sharon Stover. “We are tentatively looking at interviews on June 18 in Espanola.”

    Stover said there is a chance a decision will be made that day.

    Input will be gathered from coalition members and congressional staff.
