County Announces CIP Meeting Format

COUNTY News:

A series of capital improvement project (CIP) public meetings kicks off next Tuesday, and details on the meeting format have been released by Los Alamos County:

As residents enter, they will be asked if they wish to sign in with their name and address on one of three sign-in sheets in order to make public comment. The three lists are:

  • 1) Public Comment on CIP items not on the list at the December Council meeting where this topic was discussed;
  • 2) Public Comment on CIP items already on the list at the December meeting; and
  • 3) Public Comment on funding mechanisms for any of the projects.

Public comment will then proceed by calling the names of each person on each of the three lists to speak at the microphone. Attendees can sign up on all three lists if they wish to do so. The order of public comment taken will be: projects not on the list, followed by projects on the list, and finally public comments about funding mechanisms.

Based on the number of individuals who sign in for public comment, a limit will be placed on length of time for each individual to speak, however, a time limit between two to three minutes should be anticipated. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their comments in writing, and to have a copy to give to County staff. It should be noted that comments in writing given to the County would then be considered a public record.

These meetings are intended to be informal listening sessions that Councilors may attend and no discussion will occur, although Councilors may ask clarifying questions of the speakers.

Attendees do not need to give public comment unless they desire to do so; all meetings are open to the public to observe and listen to comments from others. All meetings – including those held in White Rock — will be streamed live and recorded for later viewing from the County’s webpage:
