Five months ago, the city let go six of its directors. Now one of those positions is filled.
Last week, the City Council approved the hiring of Robert Pacheco as housing director. He previously served as the director of the Tucumcari housing authority for 14 years.
Pacheco, who is coming out of retirement, told the council that the Tucumcari authority increased its annual budget from $200,000 to $1.2 million on his watch.
