ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Some business owners impacted by the Albuquerque Rapid Transit construction met with the contractors Thursday, but it’s not enough to ease their concerns.
“Coffee with a Contractor” allows the public to meet with Bradbury Stamm and ask any questions about the controversial new bus line.
Many owners have been vocal about the decline in business and they were hoping to have an open discussion Thursday.
Instead, they got a one-on-one, and they tell KRQE News 13 it wasn’t enough.
“Maybe the next meeting they’ll have a better presentation to give us information as a group, so we can hear what their plan is,” said Larry Rainosek, owner of Frontier Restaurant.
“Coffee with a Contractor” will host these meetings on the first Thursday of every month at different coffee shops along Central.
