Someone please explain to me what exactly the City Council did

According to this story from the Dallas Morning News' City Hall Blog, the Dallas City Council voted to eliminate some of its own expenses. Here is one paragraph from that story:

"The biggest savings comes from an 11-3 vote to eliminate the printing of paper agendas that will save $70,000."

But then later in the same story comes this paragraph:

"The council chose not to cut home delivery of paper agendas because the $6,000 savings could only be realized if the full council agreed to it."

Does anyone else think this doesn't make sense? How could the council not vote to eliminate the home delivery of paper agendas that had already been eliminated by a previous vote?
