The Mosquito and the Elephants
By Laura Sanchez
The mayor-Council showdown over a tax cut delay amounting to about $9 million headlined the June 4 meeting. Three other bills, all deferred, put the amount involved into context. A proposed new software system for the administration would cost $25 million. A proposed restriction on tax increment development districts in fringe developments could keep hundreds of millions in the city's tax base. And tighter energy conservation standards for construction would lower city utility bills for decades.
Teens and kids won out with approval of a city-APS-CNM property swap that provides land for a sports complex in the northwest quadrant. Councilor Brad Winter said, "This shows what happens when all the governments work together."
