KRWG News This Week - Slow Flooding Recovery; Las Cruces Jobless Numbers Exceed National Average

Aug 27, 2021

Another busy week of news, and we have you covered.

We begin with the region’s in-depth coverage of flooding in the region.  We’ll hear what local officials are saying about the recovery.  And…why you might want to purchase flood insurance even if you are not in an official flood zone.

And…once again, the job market in the Las Cruces region is far behind the average recovery in the rest of the nation.  We’ll hear about an economic report delivered to the city council.

Plus…commentator Walt Rubel’s thoughts on the Las Cruces City Council decision to impose a mandatory 10-cent paper bag fee and tracking requirements for area retailers.  This will start next year, when the city bans plastic bags at most stores. 

All that, plus the week’s other top stories, special reports, and more.
