In a unanimous decision, the Los Alamos county council voted Geoff Rodgers in as vice chair Tuesday evening. The position was vacated when Ron Selvage resigned last week.
A procedure for filling Selvage’s council seat also received unanimous support. Staff was directed to solicit letters of intent from those interested in the position, with a deadline of 5 p.m. Aug. 28. Council will appoint one of the candidates in a special session Sept. 6.
Rodgers recused himself from council’s first business item on the agenda: a recommendation regarding a public access and use plan for the Valles Caldera National Preserve. Rodgers’ wife is employed at the preserve.
