Upcoming Community Meetings in Arrey and Truth or Consequences

As a consequence of the Black Fire, which has affected the areas of Winston, Chloride, Kingston and Hillsboro, we understand there is no place available to convene the regularly scheduled annual community meetings to discuss Sierra County projects.

We are therefore inviting all community members to attend either of the two following meetings scheduled for late June:

  • On Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at 5:30PM at the Albert J Lyon Center at the Fair Grounds in Truth or Consequences
  • On Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 5:30PM at the Arrey Senior Meal Site in Arrey

The Public is invited to attend both meetings.
