The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Los Alamos County has offered to give Santa Fe County about 2 square miles (5 square kilometers) of Santa Fe National Forest land in exchange for the mesa land and a tract that contains a Los Alamos County well field.

With the forest land, Santa Fe County could collect about $2,800 per year in federal compensation for nontaxable forest land.

Some Santa Fe County commissioners expressed doubts about the trade on Tuesday.

Most commissioners asked for more information before they make a decision.
