A Los  Alamos County public hearing tonight will consider three new ordinances.

Two ordinances pertaining to utilities are under review, one that raises the average residential customer’s sewer utility rates by about $4 per month and the other that effectively lowers gas rates by 17-24 percent, depending on the volume used.

A third ordinance spells out a lease agreement with the Administrative Office of the Courts for accommodations within the new Los Alamos Judicial Complex.

In other business, the council will consider approving artwork for the Eco-Station and consider office arrangements for community development and public utility staff who will vacate the Annex Building scheduled to be demolished at the Trinity Site.

Members of a charter review committee to review the county’s Charter will be considered along with a new member of the Art in Public Places Board.

A plan to consider the site selection of the new Municipal Building had been scheduled for this meting, but has been tentatively postponed until the Dec. 15 meeting.

The meeting takes place at the Community Building, beginning at 7 p.m. and is streamed live by PAC-8 television.
