Los Alamos NM – On Tuesday evening, the County Council approved a process whereby citizens interested in being appointed to the currently vacant council seat can submit a letter of interest to the Council. Under the County charter, any qualified person who is a registered voter and resident of the county, but who is not employed by the County, may serve on the Council. Applicants are asked to submit a one or two page letter indicating why they would be interested in serving on the Council. The letter must be received no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 20. Interested applicants are asked to mail their letter to Los Alamos County Administrator Max Baker, P.O. Box 30, Los Alamos, NM  87544. Letters may also be submitted to the County Administrator’s office at 133 Central Park Square in Los Alamos. The Council has placed further discussion of this item and the letters received by the deadline on their Jan. 27 council meeting agenda.

  The vacancy on Council was created in December when Councilor Jim West resigned for health reasons. His term would have expired December 31, 2010.
