1976
City Council instructed city staff today to investigate ways of removing the mini-monorail system from Hemisfair Plaza.  City Public Works Director Mel Sueltenfuss said the monorail, which has run only periodically since 1968, has received little use.
Also today, the City Council unanimously declared the Robt. E. Lee Hotel a public nuisance.  The declaration started in motion proceedings which could have the hotel at 111 W. Travis closed within three to four weeks.
