• Ben Munoz talked to the Federal Republic Women’s Club at the Pow Wow Inn in Tucumcari about 90 proposed low-cost housing units in the city. Rent would range from $25 to $60 a month depending on the unit’s size. The Tucumcari Housing Authority hopes to have the development a reality by next winter.
