Gas company to perform maintenance

New Mexico Gas Company (NMGC) will be performing maintenance/system improvement work on the gas transmission line in the Los Alamos area on Monday through Wednesday.
 The work will require the “blow-down” of the natural gas transmission line near the Forest Service boundary and Solana Road (southwest of the Quemazon subdivision) on Tuesday morning Aug. 19. Depending on wind direction, there is a possibility that area residents may be able to smell natural gas and hear the hissing noise from the release of gas. The actual process will take less than 15 minutes with most of the noise happening early during gas release. This is a routine operation to work on the gas transmission line and the “blow down” does not present a safety hazard to the public.

GOP meeting scheduled for Thursday

The Republican Party of Los Alamos will hold its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at the UNM-LA Wallace Hall, Room 505. The program will be a forum on the proposed charter change to restructure county utilities.
Advocates both for and against will present their cases and respond to questions. A regular business meeting will follow. For more information, call Robert Gibson, 662-3159.
