With the city suffering extreme drought conditions, on June 5 councilors quickly passed emergency fire restrictions on open burning or smoking in the city and bosque, fireworks in nonbarren areas, and certain motorized equipment in campgrounds, wildlands or bosque.
A convenience store safety bill Council President Martin Heinrich has been negotiating died on expiration, but Heinrich said changes made by the most severely affected stores had greatly improved the situation, and he hoped to make those changes permanent. Councilor Don Harris' bill passed, creating less restrictive interim design guidelines in the East Central corridor until more permanent guidelines are established.
