Council Meeting Changes Continue Because Of COVID-19



The Los Alamos County Council meeting scheduled in Council Chambers at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 7 will continue using a format that complies with the recent New Mexico Department of Health’s public health emergency order governing mass gatherings because of COVID-19. The format was initially used for the March 31 Council meeting and that process is noted again for public reference below:

 Public in-person attendance Tuesday evening will not be allowed. Minimal County staff will be in attendance to present items and most Councilors will be participating by phone. The agenda has been streamlined to focus on time-sensitive matters. Members of the public interested in watching the meeting can view the agenda and live-stream the meeting from home using this link and accessing the meeting for April 7:

 The meeting will also be broadcast live on cable television on PAC-8, the local community station.

 The County encourages public comment via e-mail at Citizens are asked to type PUBLIC COMMENT in the subject line of the e-mail. Within the body of the e-mail, individuals should include a name, address, whether the comment pertains to a specific item on the agenda, and the comment. Public comments about items will be accepted prior to the meeting, to be read into the meeting at the appropriate time. In addition, the e-mail address will be monitored during the meeting for comments to be received during the live proceedings and read into the record when the Chair calls for public comment.
