Rio Nuevo director’s job eliminated in city’s 2010 budget

Rio Nuevo director Greg Shelko will be out of a job June 30 as his position was eliminated from the 2010 fiscal budget that starts July 1, interim City Manager Mike Letcher announced Friday afternoon.

Letcher sent a memo to the City Council with the Shelko decision about a half hour after the Rio Nuevo Multipurpose Facilities Board launched the process to regain control of Rio Nuevo management and finances.

“It is essential that the (Rio Nuevo) District take a larger public role and work collaboratively with diverse stakeholders to achieve its goals,” Shelko said in a prepared statement. “I applaud their initiative today.”

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
