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.

Input sought on Waterworks cleanup and use
The Town of Silver City was awarded a Brownfields Cleanup Grant from the Environmental Protection Agency in 2013. As part of the grant requirements, the Town must prepare an Analysis of Brownfields Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) and obtain public comments on it before cleanup activities can begin.
The ABCA is a screening tool to document the selection of the appropriate type of cleanup for the Waterworks building. The preferred remedial action takes into account past studies and rehabilitation activities, the surrounding environment, potential reuse, and the building’s listing on both the State Historic Register and the National Register of Historic Places.
Your comments on the Analysis are welcome. Please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
