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.

At City Hall, your opinion matters!
Do you have a great idea for the future of Silver City, or a can't-miss idea to improve the quality of life in your community? If so, the Town of Silver City and Mayor Michael Morones want to know.

Beginning this month, the Town has added an anonymous comment section to the front page of the Town's www.townofsilvercity.org website, with an eye toward encouraging residents to contribute blue-sky ideas, concerns and strategic input.

"We've always had a variety of ways to contact the Town and Council," Morones said, "and we still really enjoy the face to face interaction that comes with meeting residents. At the same time, we want to make sure that folks who are a little more bashful, or who are bringing up sensitive issues or concerns, have a way to contact us."

The new comment section allows web visitors to send comments to the Town without disclosing their name, and without using an email account that identifies them. Morones said the Town continues to welcome input directly to his and Councilors' email addresses, "but this is ideal for folks who want to contribute anonymously yet know that their comments are going right to me and the Council."

Morones said that because the comment section does not collect users' name or email address, the Council can't respond directly to the comments received: "We are looking at these comments with an eye toward the Town's future. These anonymous comments aren't really intended to identify potholes or weedy yards. We do have ways to contact the Town for issues like that," he said.

"But we've already received great input on contentious issues, and I understand that sometimes folks want to be able to comment in a respectful and anonymous way," he said.

The new comment section is on the front page of the Town's web site, under Morones' photograph. Comments are reviewed periodically by the Council and are retained in a database to guide the Town's planning processes.
