The town of Hurley held a regular meeting October 10, 2023. Attendance to the meeting included Mayor Ed Stevens, councilors Nanette Day, Reynaldo Maynes and Keana Huerta.
Several residents had come to address the council with concerns. A property on Arizona street has caused concern for their safety. The police have been called many times, but they feel nothing has been done.
Another resident came because she had been having problems with a neighbor's dogs.

Veterans deserve to be honored on Veterans' Day every year, and also every other day.
But if you are offering a discount to veterans on Veterans' Day for any of your services, please email the information to email@example.com by Nov. 8 so we have time to compile the list.
We plan to post a list prior to Veteran's Day.
[Editor's Note: The Grant County Commission meeting on Oct. 10, 2023, lasted just shy of 3 hours, so readers can expect several articles. The first one begins with public input and then goes into county reports.]

After the Grant County Commission at the work session on Oct. 10, 2023, amended the agenda to add the Grant County Community Health Council as a presentation, the commissioners heard public input from Melanie Zipin, co-owner of Zócalo with her family in Arenas Valley. "We've been working on the property for several years. When Covid hit, it delayed our opening until after the lockdown. We've lived in the community for more than 30 years. We saw a need for a place for locals and visitors to gather and listen to music, have events and bring their families. We've seen a very positive impact in the community, especially from the Mining District and the rural areas. We are looking at putting in a fire sprinkler or suppression system, which would protect our patrons, our historic building and the surrounding area."

Silver Consolidated Schools Superintendent William Hawkins, was the featured speaker as introduced by Lt. Gov. Howie Morales speaking from Santa Fe, who said he was waiting to hear what Mr. Hawkins would say. "His accomplishment at Silver Schools is awesome. Wherever I go, he's there not just as a superintendent, but as a parent, an educator, and as a citizen. I'm saying this as a parent, as an educator. He's out cutting weeds at Fox Field. He shows his respect and his commitment to the schools."
Hawkins said he was humbled by that introduction. He introduced as a guest at the luncheon the Assistant Superintendent Luis Alvarez.
