Each candidate is currently participating in a one-hour forum that consists of a brief introduction of each candidate, followed by a Q&A session. These sessions began on Tuesday and will conclude on Thursday. We hope members of the community have been able to participate in this important process. If you have any questions or suggestions about this process, please feel free to reach out to our ACCT Search Consultant: Julie Golder, J.D., Vice President of Search Services, ACCT, or (202) 384-5816.


Members of the Carlsbad Police Department have been providing ALICE (Alert Lock Down Inform Counter and Evacuating) training to local schools and businesses. This is very valuable training, based around a study of the Columbine tragedy, which provides individuals with options that may help them save their life in an emergency. Members of the Loving School District and City of Carlsbad employees both received the training last week. For more information, please contact the police department’s non-emergency number at (575) 885-2111 and speak to Lt. Adrian Rodriguez in the Community Services Division.



Due to the size of both Fallapalooza and the HHW/Rx Takeback Day events scheduled for the 8th of October, the Fall ’22 HHW/RX Takeback Day will now be held across the river next to Project Playground off Muscatel Ave. next to the Rec. Center, located at 400 Riverwalk Dr. This will be a chance to get rid of E-waste, tires, chemicals and pharmaceutical items.
