Today’s City Council will not be meeting at City Hall, but rather they will be on the road. The meeting will be held in Northeast El Paso in hopes that more voices in the community can be heard.
The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. at the El Paso County 911 District, 6055 Threadgill Ave. The meeting was moved to a later time so that more people could attend after work. City Council says they hope to update everyone about the capital improvement projects that are happening in Northeast El Paso. They also want to hear where the community thinks that money should go.
“The common thread is that we want to hear we want the input and we hear complaints that folks don’t feel like we’re listening but we are,” said Laura Cruz-Acosta, Communications Director for El Paso City Council.
Cruz-Acosta said that during budget season, City Council worked on the three main topics that they originally heard from the community. With the next budget season approaching, City Council says they hope to hear more input from every community around El Paso.
On the agenda for today, a discussion of funds for several improvement projects. Including ongoing enhancements to the El Paso International Airport. Council will also outline an ordinance to construct a Helipad at Las Palmas Hospital.
Council said they are hoping to visit every community in El Paso. However, they are not sure when the next trip will be.
