Santa Fe mayor will not seek reelection

May 2, 2013

Santa Fe Mayor David Coss has just announced he will not seek a third term in office. That leaves the field wide open for aspiring candidates to the city's top post in next year's election.

Coss says he has yet to make any decisions regarding his future political life but told Hutton Broadcasting this morning that his decision could be seen as clearing a path for seeking other office in the future.

Coss made an attempt to run for New Mexico’s House of Representatives District 46 last year but was defeated in the primary.

Santa Fe has more than a half-million dollars in unpaid water bills, and plans are developing to collect it.  City council's Public Utilities Committee has begun looking at options. An ordinance on the books allows the city to disconnect delinquent customers after 90 days but procedures for doing it are not clear. The New Mexican reports that the city of Rio Rancho begins taking steps to cut off delinquent customers after two to three weeks.

In today's features, a talk with new Santa Fe Airport Manager Francey Jesson as new services begin.  Mora County has a ban on oil and gas extractions -- the first such action in the nation.  And New Mexicans with outstanding warrants are being offered a sort of amnesty.

Court officials have set June 5th to begin the move into the new district courthouse.  Court administrator Steven Pacheco tells KSFR News that the move entails bringing existing courtroom seating from the old courthouse because new seating will not arrive until the end of July.  It was ordered late because of delays in funding.  Because of the move, court will be closed from June 5th, reopening on the 10th.

Santa Fe city council will be getting a draft of next year's city budget in time for a vote on May 8th.  The finance committee has wrapped up work on the spending plan that anticipates about the same amount of income as this year.  The New Mexican reports the budget provides no wage increases and would eliminate some city jobs that are currently vacant. The plan also doesn't call for increasing taxes.  

On Monday's midday report:  The Lamy Rail Road and History museum has told the Legal Tender restaurant that operates in the museum to shut down. We'll speak with the museum's president to find out why...A Santa Fe-based think tank responsible for any number of new state laws and policies is on a new quest to open up New Mexico's primary elections to all registered voters, not just those in the two major parties...And details on the police department's giveaway of free gun locks...headlines...60 Seconds with Christopher Hagen...

Former police chief Arik Wheeler is under investigation on allegations he improperly released a pickup truck from the city's impound lot. The vehicle had been seized in a DWI incident.  The allegations say that Wheeler released the vehicle to the owner without authority.  Wheeler is now a police captain who served for a little more than a year as chief.
