Agenda Whacking: A Contact Sport
By Laura Sanchez
The 800-pound gorilla—another vote on the Paseo del Norte road extension—failed to materialize at the April 19 council meeting. Putting the bill on the evening's agenda would have required a 6-3 majority, and Council President Michael Cadigan did not attempt it.
Councilor Martin Heinrich's bill streamlining approval of city service and housing contracts when there has been no change in cost, service or contractor passed unanimously. Eric Griego's bill adding a 1 percent hospitality tax on lodgings also passed unanimously. The money will fund improvements on the Convention Center and market Albuquerque as a convention and tourist destination. Administration bills raising fees and regulating liquor sales at city golf courses passed.
