ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Albuquerque City Council has decided not to return to in-person meetings next week as previously planned. The council president says in light of the increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the state and the fact that Bernalillo County is considered an area of substantial COVID spread, they want to remain vigilant. It’s not uncommon for hundreds of people to attend council meetings.
