Council Still Seeks DPU Charter Review Committee Members


The County Council is still accepting letters of interest from citizens interested in being appointed to a five member committee to study Utilities-related sections of the County’s Charter.

The Committee will include one member of Council, one member of the Dept. of Public Utilities’ Board and three citizens who meet any one of the following qualifications:

  • A member of the community with Management experience;
  • A member of the community with Accounting experience; and
  • A member of the community “at large.”

Applicants wishing to be considered for appointment to the Committee are asked to send a one or two-page letter to the Council with their name, address, phone number and e-mail address.

They are asked to state which of the three positions they are interested in, and should furnish information about their employer (if applicable), as well as a listing of their qualifications and experience.

In addition, they are asked to submit a paragraph stating “why” they would like to serve on the Committee. Letters may be e-mailed to lacadministrator@lacnm.usor mailed or hand-carried to the County Administrator’s office at 133 Central Park Square in Los Alamos. The deadline for letters of interest is 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19.

The Council plans to make the appointments at the March 5 Council meeting (7 p.m. in Council Chambers, inside the Community Building.)

To review the County Charter, applicants may visit and link on the “Municipal Code” link on the home page.

In addition, the Charter Review Committee has a project webpage hosted under the “County Council” section of the webpage. Applicants may wish to review the work of the Committee and its previous Utilities’ subcommittee.
