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.

Small Business Energy Audit Program
SAVE SERIOUS MONEY WITH A BUSINESS ENERGY AUDIT
The Town of Silver City has received a grant to provide energy audits for small businesses in our four county area (Grant, Catron, Hidalgo and Luna counties).
Sluggish sales and hard-to-get loans may blight the business landscape, but cutting energy waste can bring a big payoff to a small company. To shave liabilities off your profit-and-loss statement, aim to slash your power consumption instead of your workforce or the crucial projects that could help your company expand.
An energy audit creates a portrait of the energy demands that matter to your operations, as well as those you can do without. The audit will identify cost-effective energy saving measures that you can pursue to help reduce operating expenses, increase profit and increase the value of the building.
The program funds 75% of the cost of the audit, the business owner pays 25%. Residences and large businesses (greater than 50 employees) are not eligible.
CLICK HERE for an application.
Applicants will be evaluated by eligibility based on a first come first serve basis until funding is exhausted. If you have any questions concerning the process please contact Denise Smith at (575) 519-8987.
Once you have the energy audit report, you can start improving the energy efficiency of your building and operation. The report automatically makes you eligible for a USDA grant (25% of project costs) or loan/grant combination (75% of project costs) from the Rural Energy for America Program Renewable Energy Systems & Energy Efficiency Improvement Program.
