Mayor Tony Marquez, who has had a penchant for controversy in his two years at the helm, averted one in his final days.
Marquez, who didn’t run for re-election, had scheduled a City Council meeting for this evening, a day after the municipal election.
But he decided Tuesday not to hold it after all.
That was after two council members had said they wouldn’t attend, contending it should be left to the new governing body. Another member said he would have gone in protest.
