Did you see the new directives for dealing with COVID-19?
Especially this one?
Except for Healthcare Operations in Section 5(c), individuals having traveled 100 miles or more outside the City must upon return to El Paso self-quarantine for a period of 14 days.
Doesn’t City Manager Tommy Gonzalez live in Abernathy, Texas? That’s 365 miles via US 180, according to Google Maps. A little bit less if he charters a plane, but still more than 100 miles.
If he holes up in his vacation house in West El Paso for two weeks after every visit to the fam, how’s he going to run the city into bankruptcy?
Will his Deputy City Managers do it for him? After all, isn’t that what they’re paid for?
I’m not trying to pick on poor TommyG, but I didn’t read an exemption for City Managers.
