Council Compass: Preview for Jan. 23

by Carolyn Carlson

— In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Albuquerque City Council will forgo their regular Monday meeting for one on Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 5 p.m.  The short agenda has several items sure to draw people to speak out:

  • Approval to apply for $300,000 in state grant funding to help the city’s crime lab process a backlog of DNA evidence
  • Three appointments to the troubled Police Oversight Commission that should generate lively discussion among members of the public and Council
  • Consideration of a legislative priority wish list to send to lawmakers at the state capitol
  • Amending the Accountability in Government Ordinance so that two-thirds of the Council can vote to remove the city’s internal auditor and/or inspector general

You can check out the agenda, and access webcasts of previous and live city meetings at the City Council website.
