Newly Elected City Council and Mayor take their spots.

During Tuesday night’s City Council meeting the newly elected Mayor Ginger Nelson and City Council members were sworn in. The newly elected council also passed the second and final reading of the ordinance changing City Ordinance Section 16-3-131 pertaining to exit and entrance of parking establishments in the Central Business District. The ordinance modification will allow for exceptions to the left turn prohibition, particularly in cases where it would make sense from the standpoint of traffic flow and/or circulation. The Council also passed City Ordinance Article 21 section 16-3-1001. This would change southeast 7th avenue which is a one-way street and southwest 8th avenue to a two-way avenue which will better facilitate traffic movement in this area, particularly for vehicles exiting and entering the new City of Amarillo and Xcel Energy parking garages.
