Taos meeting draws more than 150

January 26th, 2011 in News

Taos Mayor Alicia Weaver addresses a crowd who attended a meeting Tuesday night to discuss the town's sewer project.

What was intended to be a routine Taos Board of Aldermen meeting Tuesday drew more than 150 supporters and opponents of the city's plan to build its own sewer system.

Tensions between residents of the town, population 870, flared briefly, but various calls for civility were mostly heeded.

The crowd showed after a letter circulated in town from an anonymous group of residents who called for the city to put the brakes on the project until their concerns are addressed.
