City stalls
sister city
garbage
truck

By ELIZABETH ATKINS
A garbage truck provided by Ann
Arbor for its sister city in Juigalpa,
Nicaragua may not depart until
August because the Ann Arbor City
Council vetoed a proposal to buy

ently erroneously, that this was an
activity taken on by the city and
that they would follow through,"
Eckroad said. Last month, Republi -
can Mayor Gerald Jernigan vetoed a
resolution that would have extended
the Central America Sister City
Task Force charter with the city.
But Eckroad remains optimistic.
"I'm comfortable that it will be
sent. It's still going to happen but
more running round," he said.
