All in all it’s just … another memo about the wall

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

An April 20 memo to the mayor and City Council from Capital Contracting Officer Rolando Fernandez shows that city staff is hard at work implementing a Council resolution that took aim at the border wall along the United States/Mexico border. Council approved the resolution in February, asking the city manager to investigate the economic impact of the proposed wall and require companies that have economic ties to the wall’s construction to disclose those ties with an eye toward using that information to make decisions. It will probably come as no surprise that a task force has been formed to explore the issue, and an initial report will be back at Council by August 7.
