Staff Report

The month of May is dedicated to moving nearly 150 employees into the new Los Alamos County Municipal Building downtown at 1000 Central Ave.

The 311 Customer Care Center will be one of the very last service areas to move to the new building; therefore, they will be the best resource to call (3-1-1 from a land line or 505-662-8333 from a cell phone) for questions about any of the departments. Within each department, at least one staff member has been designated to have a cell phone and to be available to take questions during the move.

Within the new building, signage in the lobby will show visitors where the new departments are located, along with a poster of the move schedule as shown below. Staff in the Public Works department, located just off the main lobby of the new buildling, are also able to help the public with general move questions.

Members of the public are asked to limit access to the building throughout May as it is very busy with movers, boxes, furniture and staff loading and unloading large trucks.

The community will be invited to a Grand Opening and Building dedication, which is set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., June 28. 

Editor’s note: More details will be published in the Los Alamos Daily Post as the event draws closer. .
