City seeking $120M for capital projects

ABQ City Council

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque city councilors want to ask voters later this year to approve nearly $120 million for street repairs and other capital projects.

The bond package includes $2 million for a new library in the International District and $500,000 to design a new library for northwest Albuquerque. It also includes $1.5 million for improvements to redevelopment of the rail yards in Barelas and $4 million to replace police cars.

City councilors unanimously approved the bond package on Monday. The mayor would like nearly $4.5 million for affordable housing which could be used to help the homeless get off the streets. The problem was highlighted by the recent debate over Tent City.
