Budget hearings continue on Monday, April 27 at 6:00 p.m. in Council Chambers. The format will be the same format used for the budget hearings last week that comply with the recent New Mexico Department of Health’s public emergency order governing mass gathering because of COVID-19.
Public in-person attendance will not be allowed. Minimal County staff will be in attendance in person to present their proposed budget items and all Councilors will be participating using the Zoom conference platform. Members of the public interested in watching the budget hearings can view the agenda and live stream the meeting from home using this link below and accessing the hearings for the respective dates listed above:
The hearings will also be broadcast live on cable television on PAC-8, the local community station.
Until the Council adopts the budget, it is still open for discussion and change. Scheduled budget hearings may be cancelled if the budget is adopted at an earlier hearing. A budget hearing for Tuesday, April 28 is still scheduled at this time.
Council will reserve the first 30 minutes of each hearing for public comment on any portion of the proposed budget. Once all comments have been provided, or, after this time has expired, budget presentations and discussions will continue.
Citizens can submit comments in two ways:
- Send U.S. mail to County Manager Harry Burgess, 1000 Central Avenue, Ste 350, Los Alamos, NM 87544
- E-Mail comments to email@example.com in advance and include the words “Public Comment” in the subject line
