Los Alamos
Back in August 2013, UNM-LA tried, and FAILED, to stick the property owners of Los Alamos with an increase to their property taxes to pay for whatever the University wanted to spend it on. 
Now they want to try again by including a Mil Levy on the Los Alamos Public School Bond ballot in January, with the blessing of the Los Alamos Public School board.
UNM-LA wants the property owners of Los Alamos to foot the bill for their operation, maintenance, AND capital improvements through a Mil Levy.
