REGULAR COMMISSION MEETING OF 11-27-01 TO BEGIN AT 4 P.M.

The Doña Ana County Board of Commissioners will begin its regular meeting of Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2001, at 4 p.m. with a closed session. The closed session is being moved to the beginning of the meeting to accommodate the amount of business expected to be discussed privately. Normally, closed sessions are held at the end of the regular meeting.

“There are a number of matters that the Commission needs to discuss privately before we move into the open portion of the meeting,” King said. “We know we need at least an hour in closed session, and we believe we can minimize the inconvenience to the public and the press by discussing these matters prior to the regular meeting rather than in the middle of the meeting. A mid-meeting closure would force spectators into the Courthouse hallways for the duration of the discussion.”
