The Los Alamos Board of Education took a big step Friday in its quest to buy its own building.
Although there still are details to be worked out, the school board passed a resolution 3-1 to move ahead with purchasing the complex at 2075 and 2101 Trinity Drive and assuming the accompanying leases.
The lone dissenting vote came from school board president Melanie McKinley.
“I just don’t want to spend any money right now,” McKinley said after the meeting. “I respect my colleagues for making the decision they did. They want to get rid of the lease payments.”
School superintendent Gene Schmidt, meanwhile, was happy with the vote.
