During yesterday’s council meeting, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center asked the council to approve a fellowship program for the center. This program would allow these doctors to use the city health department clinics to study infectious diseases. Mayor Martin is in favor of the plan and has expedited the request,

We have a very large medical complex here. It’s one of the pillars of our community as far as economic development and the economy goes, and anytime you can get a fellowship program, [it] really raises the stature of your medical school.”

Mayor Martin also discussed another issue brought up during the meeting,  a zoning issue with a tattoo shop in the North University area. Mayor Martin also answered several listener calls concerning traffic ordinances and the brick streets downtown.
