The Los Alamos County Council is seeking Letters of Interest to fill the newly chartered Nuisance Code Implementation Review (NCIR) Task Force. Letters are to be submitted by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Mar. 16 and may be submitted by any County resident. Adopted at the February 7, council meeting, the charter for the NCIR Task Force requires appointed members to review the implementation and interpretation of the new code; review data and reports for one year; engage affected members of the public and county staff; assess the effectiveness of the program’s communications; and prepare and present a report to the council of issues and recommendations. This Task Force will ideally consist of five diverse members, from different geographic areas of the community.  

The primary purpose of the Task Force is to review the implementation and interpretation of the requirements of the new Chapter 18 Nuisance Code that recently went into effect. The Task Force will serve as an advisory board to Council with a term of one year from April 3, 2023, to April 2, 2024.      

Letters of Interest should explain background and qualifications and include the answers to the following questions:  

1. Why are you interested in serving on the NCIR Task Force?

3. Do you have any personal experience with Los Alamos County Code Compliance?   

4. Have you served on other Los Alamos County boards, commissions, or task forces? If yes, which one(s)?  

5. In what part of Los Alamos County or neighborhood do you live?  

The Letters of Interest should be limited to two pages. ​The group is a working Task Force and the individual appointed can expect to spend time in meetings for the main committee on a regular basis along with other assigned work outside of committee meetings to achieve the work plan set forth in the charter.    

Interested residents should e-mail Letters of Interest to: no later than 5 p.m. on March 16.
