ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Albuquerque City Council is expected to vote on two key issues during their Monday meeting.

New Mexico United stadium proposal

The council is expected to vote on the proposed New Mexico United stadium. If approved, Albuquerque voters will decide the project’s fate in November

The proposal would set aside $50 million to fund the project through a massive tax revenue bond measure.

A recent study highlighted several potential locations near downtown.

Three city councilors are planning to introduce a new proposal Monday to look into additional locations — on the West Side.

Free bus fare pilot project

The council is also expected to vote on the free bus fare pilot project.

If approved, the project would set aside $3 million in federal funds to make all Albuquerque bus ride fares free for a year, starting October 1.

People can submit their comments ahead of the 5 p.m. meeting
