Final YESCO Review Endorsed

City of Truth or Consequences

Truth or Consequences (T-or-C) City Commissioners rendered a 3-to-2 decision in support of a motion to finalize a contract with Year-Out Energy Services C o m p a n y (YESCO) during the board’s December 13 session. This proposed con-tract would ensure the replacement of municipal water and electric meters with state-of-the-art digital equipment. Mayor Steve Green entered the motion directing administrative staff to obtain information requested during the morning’s session, assure completion of the contract, and to secure a legal review of the measure. The motion also emphasized that board approval would in no way obligate the city to any future decision.

Getting The Word Out

City of Truth or Consequences

Earlier this year, Truth or Consequences mayor Steve Green gained the city commission’s support to develop a relocation packet, which could be provided or mailed to potential community residents. With the assistance of city staff members and community volunteers, a selection of local brochures, pamphlets and other publications providing a comprehensive view of the city and Sierra County was assembled, and is now available. Each packet also includes a letter signed by the mayor and current city commissioners, which thanks the recipient for their interest and provides an informal overview of the community’s assets and attractions. During a recent gathering of spaceport officials, mayor Green delivered 40 complete packets to representatives of Virgin Galactic. The firm is reportedly poised to increase personnel supporting Spaceport America operations and it is hoped that many will choose to make a home in Sierra County.

T-or-C resident Ron Fenn interrupted city commission proceedings March 28 at the conclusion of the morning’s public comments session. Fenn raised his voice to complain that a written statement he apparently submitted to city officials had not been read into the record. In response, mayor Steve Green called for an immediate recess, during which Police Chief Lee Alirez spoke with Fenn and urged him to abide by meeting protocols. On March 14 board members voted to bar Fenn from participating in public comment for two meetings.
