Letter To The Editor: Help Needed For Summer Seasonal Employees Looking For Local Housing

By BRIAN KLIESEN

While we are still in the icy grip of winter, Summer is not that far off and with it will come a small crowd of summer seasonal employees, here to work the season and looking for a place to live. 
 
With the ever tightening housing market in Los Alamos and the requirement for yearly leases, summer employees find it difficult to locate housing. 
 
LANL often dominates the scene with its summer interns and techs that visit for projects during the summer, allowing few opportunities for others. Santa Fe and Espanola have housing available, but the distance and price make it much more costly and less efficient. 
 
Most summer seasonals will start their season in April or May (some even earlier) and finish up in the fall around October. If you have a small apartment, efficiency or room available that you would be willing to rent for less than the usual 12 months, to an outgoing, pleasant, quiet, hardworking (hopefully) person, please let me know and I can pass on this information to those who are looking for a place to stay this summer.
