Clark & Kendall’s Weekend Preview – April 20, 2012 [AUDIO]

The Los Alamos Daily Post's events calendar audio webcast, "Clark & Kendall's Weekend Preview."  Carol A. Clark and Greg Kendall co-host this weekly program, which previews each upcoming weekend's events scheduled throughout Los Alamos and White Rock.

Today's Weekend Preview ran about 20 minutes in length because there is so much going on around the community this weekend and beyond that was covered in this webcast.

This program is sponsored by Kristin Henderson for Council (Paid for by Kristin Henderson for County Council, George Chandler, Treasurer, Andrea Cunningham, Co-treasurer.)

Things that didn't make the webcast:

Lynn Bjorklund, Jennifer Sublette, and others from the Santa Fe National Forest have been working to layout out re-routes for sections of the Cañon de Valle and Water Canyon Trails. Volunteers will have to wait to get at these trails, but the New Mexico Volunteers for the Outdoors and REI are sponsoring a volunteer work park on the southern Perimeter Trail (AKA the Reverse Traverse) on Saturday, April 28. Details at http://www.rei.com/event/37480/session/47251 . This is a one-day exemption to the closure order for volunteers. There's plenty of work on that stretch and I'd love to see 50 of us show up ready to bring that great trail back! No need to register, we'll have plenty of tools and hard hats, just where long pants, long-sleeved shirt, sturdy shoes, gloves.

Each class is limited to 10 students, and there are no waiting lists. For more information, visit our website

Council Meeting Tuesday Evening
 
After a week of Budget Hearings this week, the Council gets back to a regular meeting schedule and County business on April 24th. What's on the agenda? Look for the introduction of the first sets of oridinances related to Charter changes (necessary if the Council moves to send the changes to a vote this November), plus, a public hearing on the Chapter 16 Code changes and much more! …download the agenda here…

 
 
Capital Improvement Projects – Oversight Committee Meets on Thursday
 
It's their monthly business meeting – they'll likely be doing a wrap up after the Council discussions about capital projects and budgets last week. The public is welcome to attend – they'll be in Council Chambers at 5:15 p.m. Watch for details about the upcoming special Council meeting considering funding levels and how to fund the long list of CIP projects soon – the meeting will be May 15 at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers.
 
Another Meeting Thursday…
 
We've had a request to add more fencing at the very popular dog park located inside East Park in Los Alamos. The new area would be a smaller spot where younger dogs (or, maybe older, tired dogs!) could play safely. While it isn't much of an expense, Parks Manager Dick McIntyre will meet with park users on Thursday, April 26 at 6 p.m. at the park to review plans and discuss any concerns.
