San Jacinto Plaza isn’t done, I-10 is closed on a Saturday causing MASSIVE traffic jams in El Paso, and roads aren’t being repaved. But, at least the City Council is taking all of this seriously by talking about the price of Chihuahua tickets. City Rep. Emma Acosta has added an agenda item to the upcoming City Council Meeting to talk about how ticket prices have increased. Did you know that the City Council sets ticket prices for the Chihuahua games? Of course you didn’t, because they DON’T.
From the El Paso Times: “Acosta said her intent was never to talk about whether the city could collect more revenue from the increased ticket prices. She also said she didn’t have concerns that the increase in prices would impact ticket sales and therefore decrease the funds the city collects from them.” But not to worry, “Acosta said she does not expect any action to come from the discussion.” Well that sounds like a worthwhile WASTE of time.
