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.

Solar covered carport at Visitor's Center
In case you’ve been wondering what’s on the roof of the carport at the Silver City Visitor’s Center parking lot on Hudson St., it’s an array of photovoltaic panels which convert sunlight to electricity. The 7.6 kilowatt set of panels on the roof are connected to the Visitor Center’s electrical meter and are reducing the Town’s reliance on non-renewable energy from the electrical grid. To maximize local and regional benefit, it was built primarily with local labor, and the 32 photovoltaic panels were manufactured in Albuquerque by Schott Solar.
To increase awareness of the benefits of solar energy, an educational kiosk and display monitor has been installed at the Office of Sustainability, 1106 N. Pope St. Visitors are able to see how much energy the solar array is producing in real time, how much it has produced over time (total production), tons of CO2 emissions avoided by not burning fuel in a conventional power plant, and the equivalent number of trees planted necessary to absorb the CO2 produced from a fossil fuel burning power plant.
