Town Council Legal & Public Notices
This section provides an archive and record of recent and past Legal Notices for the Town Council, including notices for meetings and events that have already taken place:

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.

Town Response to COVID-19

In a proactive measure to attempt to limit the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus within our community the Town of Silver City has made the decision to close its Museum, Library and Recreation Center beginning on Monday, March 16th, 2020 for a period of 3 weeks.  They will be scheduled to re-open on April 6th, 2020.

We understand that when the Public Schools are not in session places such as the Library and Recreation Center are utilized by families in need of a place for their children to spend time.  However, the Town wants to proceed with an abundance of precaution given the current situation and one way to do that is to discourage the congregation of people within enclosed areas. 

The museum is a popular stop for people who are visiting our community from other areas.  Due to the large amount of people who have travelled from unknown locations spending time in the Museum the Town feels the best course of action is a temporary closure of that facility to the public.

It is also strongly recommended that all our utility customers utilize all off site payment options that are available to our customers.  (ex. On line, drop box, mail, or even calling your payments in.) 

The Town has also made the decision to cancel all events that have been scheduled on Town property, such as in parks and sports facilities, through the end of April.

Any non-governmental meetings that have been scheduled in Town facilities, such as the Town Annex, will be cancelled, postponed or asked to relocate.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation at this time.
