Staff Report

Los Alamos County Council kicked off its FY2019 proposed budget hearings this evening in Council Chambers at the Municipal Building. The FY2019 proposed budget is $188,769,256 but may be amended during the course of the hearings.

As the Council proceeds through each department, they may choose to indicate initial acceptance of each department when that presentation and discussion is complete. Such initial acceptance is subject to further changes during the budget hearings and during final budget adoption.

The complete FY2019 proposed budget was distributed separately and reference copies are available online at the County’s website, at both public libraries and at the Customer Care Center.
