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.

Supplemental Report on Water Use and Maintenance
The Town of Silver City supplies its municipal water system from groundwater supplied by the Frank?s and Woodward wellfields, and the Anderson and Gabby Hayes wells. The aquifer that supplies the wells is the Gila Group aquifer. The Town of Silver City is interested in sources for future water use and wellfield service life.
An evaluation of wellfield service life based on the widely-applied MODFLOW program is used to estimate future wellfield conditions. The model was developed by the New Mexico Office of the State Engineer and includes hydrogeologic details of the Gila Group aquifer in the Mangas and Mimbres subbasins. The model accounts for water use to supply the Town of Silver City water system, the Towns of Bayard and Central and mining uses at Chino, Tyrone and Cron Ranch. The Town of Silver City water system includes the local water associations of Pinos Altos, Tyrone, Rosedale and the Arenas Valley.
