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.

Learn more about the Open Meetings Act!

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE TOWN OF SILVER CITY:

Such wires and other appliances and conductors may be strung upon poles or other fixtures above ground, or at the option of WNM, its successors and assigns, may be laid underground, and such other apparatus may be used as may be necessary or proper to operate and maintain the same. Any and all changes made by WNM solely for the benefit of WNM specific reasons in the location of the poles, wires, cables, underground conduits, manholes and other communications facilities shall not require the Town to pay for the change in any street, roadway or traffic control facility caused by the change of WNM and the cost thereof shall be paid by WNM, subject to the exceptions outlined below and in Section 4.

    SECTION 2.

The work shall be done in compliance with the necessary rules, regulations, ordinances or orders, which may during the continuance of this franchise be adopted from time to time by the Town of Silver City.

    SECTION 3.
