  3. Special meetings of the San Juan SWCD may be called by the chair or a majority of the members with three (3) days’ notice.  Emergency meetings may be called by the chair or a majority of the members with twenty-four (24) hours’ notice.  Although the Board of Supervisors will avoid emergency meetings whenever possible, such circumstances which demand immediate action by the Board may occasionally arise.  Parties who have requested a notice of meetings in writing will be notified by telephone.

  4. Pursuant to Section 10-15-1 (E) NMSA 1978 the San Juan SWCD may close a meeting to the public if the subject matter of such discussion or action is included in Subsection E of the Open Meetings Act, Section 10-15-1 NMSA 1978.  If any Board of Supervisors meeting is closed pursuant to Section 10-15-1 (E) NMSA, such closure:

  (a)  If made in an open meeting, shall be approved by a majority vote of a quorum of the Board of Supervisors and authority for the closure shall be stated in the motion calling for the vote on a closed meeting.  The vote on a closed meeting shall be taken in an open meeting and the vote of each individual member is to be recorded in the minutes.  Only those subjects announced or voted upon prior to the closure by the Board of Supervisors may be discussed in a closed meeting, and;

(b) If called for when the Board of Supervisors are not in an open meeting, the closed meeting shall not be held until public notice, appropriate under the circumstances, stating specific provision of law authorizing the closed meeting is given to the members and to the general public.
