Fiesta Council members said Tuesday they wanted to move forward. But they spent a good portion of their monthly meeting talking about the 2009 Fiesta queen.
At one point, a member said city officials were raking the Fiesta Council “over the coals.”
Two months ago, the council halved queen Carmela Montoya’s $500 scholarship, saying she didn’t attend required events, which she sharply disputed. At this week’s meeting, council President Mathew Martinez placed the scholarship back on the agenda.
