            Due to a resignation, the Doña Ana County Board of Commissioners is seeking applicants willing to serve the remainder of a five-year term on the Board of the Mesilla Valley Public Housing Authority, which will expire on Dec. 31, 2018.

            To be considered, the applicant must reside within Doña Ana County, excluding residents residing within the municipal limits of the City of Las Cruces, Mesilla, Anthony, Sunland Park and Hatch. Each applicant must submit a letter of interest, a current resume and three letters of reference to the Doña Ana County Public Information Office no later than 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12, 2018.

            The Housing Authority Board consists of two appointees by the Doña Ana County Board of Commissioners, two appointees by the City of Las Cruces and a fifth appointee, who qualifies as a resident board member in accordance with rules established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). That member is nominated by the city- and county-appointed board members.

            Appointees serve staggered five-year terms.

            At present, the Housing Authority Board meets at 9 a.m. every third Tuesday of the month in the conference room of the Mesilla Valley Public Housing Authority in Las Cruces. Meeting times and dates may be changed once vacancies are filled.

            Matters that frequently arise for consideration by the Housing Authority Board include annual budgets, federally mandated planning documents, policy documents, tax-credit developments and the annual performance evaluation of the Housing Authority’s executive director. Meetings average about 90 minutes each.

            In addition to regular meetings, the Housing Authority Board is empowered to hold special meetings and work sessions.

            Applications for county appointments may be mailed to Doña Ana County Public Information Director Jess Williams at 845 N. Motel Blvd., Las Cruces, N.M., 88007, or delivered in person to the Doña Ana County Public Information Department at the Doña Ana County Government Center.
