ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Bernalillo County commissioners have called a special meeting Friday morning to consider imposing new restrictions on the treasurer’s investment authority.

The agenda includes a proposal to rescind County Treasurer Manny Ortiz’s authority to sell investments without commission approval. Instead, the treasurer would have to get approval from the county manager.

The meeting is the latest twist in an ongoing dispute between the treasurer and commission over the county’s investment strategy.
