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.

Learn more about the Open Meetings Act!

    Sponsored by: Councilor José A. Ray, Jr.


    WHEREAS, the Town of Silver City has adopted by ordinance the New Mexico Uniform Traffic Code as its municipal traffic code in Chapter 50, Section 50-1 of the Town of Silver City Municipal Code; and

    WHEREAS, the Town Council has studied and considered measures necessary to promote safety of persons and property within the Town, and concludes that inattention by motor vehicle drivers and bicyclists caused by the use of hand- held cellular and radio-telephone devices while driving is likely to increase the risk of danger to persons and property; and

    WHEREAS, the Town Council finds that regulating the use of hand-held cellular and radio-telephone devices by persons driving motor vehicles and bicycles on the streets and roadways of the Town is in the public interest;  

     
    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE TOWN OF SILVER CTY, GRANT COUNTY, NEW MEXICO THAT:

    Section 12-6-18 and Section 12-8-1 et. seq. of the New Mexico Uniform Traffic Code (2010 Compilation as amended up through July, 2016) and as adopted as the Town of Silver City Traffic Code in Chapter 50, Section 50-1 of the Town of Silver City Municipal Code, is hereby amended as follows:

    (3) “Text message, instant message, data, photographs, electronic images and snapshots” means a digital communication transmitted or intended to be transmitted between communication devices and includes electronic mail, an instant message, a text or image communication and a command or request to an Internet site; but “text message” excludes communications through the use of a computer aided dispatch service by law enforcement or rescue personnel.

    FURTHER:

    Article VIII, Sections 12-8-1 et. seq. is amended to include a new section to be inserted as 12-8-13 with the following sections therein to be renumbered as appropriate, which shall read:

    12-8-13  USE OF MOBILE CELLULAR AND RADIO-TELEPHONE DEVICES

    Any person operating a unicycle, bicycle, or tricycle shall be subject to the provisions and penalties of Section 12-6-18 herein regulating the use of hand-held cellular and radio-telephone devices.

    AND FURTHER:

    Section 50-2 (Penalty assessments) is amended by deleting the Common Name of Offense “Texting while driving” listed as last in the penalty assessment schedule and replacing that offense with “Use of mobile telephone or other electronic communication device while driving”.  The “Ordinance Violated” shall remain 12-6-18 and the “Penalty Assessment” for that offense shall be increased to $200.
