Los Alamos County has added a new “Sunshine” webpage to its County website. The new feature can be accessed by clicking on the sun icon on the home page. (You will also find it in the Helpful Links section at the bottom of this page.) The Sunshine webpage addition is another step toward the County’s goal to build citizen trust by being open and transparent. The new webpage makes more government documents available on-line and offers a more direct way to navigate to key documents that are already offered on the website.
For example, the Sunshine webpage offers new information to residents in a County “checkbook register” showing monthly payments made to vendors. It also links to a procurement page showing all active requests for proposals and bids. In addition, residents can access a searchable database available through the Clerk’s office, allowing them to search adopted ordinances, past Council Meeting minutes, and various documents recorded in the Clerk’s office such as mortgages, judgments, liens and deeds. The webpage also links to frequently requested documents such as the adopted County budget, which has been available on line for many years, but some users have stated that it is not always easy to find.
The Sunshine webpage will be evolving and the County is interested in hearing feedback from residents about other links or government documents that they would like to see featured. Send suggestions via e-mail to email@example.com.
