Open Meetings Act Compliance
Public access to the proceedings and decision-making processes of governmental boards, agencies and commissions is an essential element of a properly
functioning democracy. We believe strongly in open government. Meetings held by public officials to discuss public business, particularly when conducted with the public taxpayers’ money, are the taxpayers’ business. The Open Meetings Act is one of New Mexico’s 'good government' laws, and it deserves the full support of all New Mexicans.

Historic District Boundary Increase Amendment
Excerpt from the full report:
"The Silver City Historic District (SCHD, NR#375377), bounded by College Avenue on the north, the ?Big Ditch? on the east, Spring Street on the south, and the alley to the west of Black Street on the west, was originally listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.1 The district is comprised of railroad-era commercial buildings, turn-of-the-century residences, and public buildings such as the Art Deco-style Grant County Courthouse built in 1930 (Photos 1-4). The district also includes resources such as the International and Moderne style Murray Hotel, originally built in 1938 and significantly expanded in 1949. This resource, along with many others, reflects the midtwentieth century growth experienced in Silver City following World War II.
In addition to providing updated information, this amendment seeks to add a block of Bullard Street, which lies immediately south of the original district boundary. The block is bound by Bullard Street on the west, East Spring Street on the north, the ?Big Ditch? on the east, and East San Vicente Street on the south and includes the historic Bullard Hotel, the Texas-Louisiana Power Plant, the Silver Liquor Company Warehouse, the Ice Storage Building, and the Home Furniture Building.2 These five additional resources, which date from 1916 to circa 1950, were not included in the early nomination; however, the buildings compliment the resource types and the railroad-era and community development contexts of the SCHD, thus warranting inclusion in the district as a boundary increase."
