APPLICANTS SOUGHT FOR TWO MESILLA VALLEY PUBLIC HOUSING AUTHORITY COMMISSION SEATS

Doña Ana County seeks two applicants to serve on the Mesilla Valley Public Housing Authority Commission, a five-member board of volunteers.

The MVPHA Commission is an independent public agency that provides affordable housing and related services in the City of Las Cruces and the unincorporated County, except in areas where an established housing authority or agency already exists.  The MVPHA Commission consists of two appointees by the Doña Ana Board of County Commissioners, two appointees by the Mayor of the City of Las Cruces and a Resident Commissioner, appointed by both the Mayor and the County Commission.

Two County appointments are vacant, and County residents who reside outside the City of Las Cruces are eligible for appointment. The terms are for 5 years and are staggered. The vacant appointments have two years and four years remaining on their terms, both starting on January 1.

Meetings are generally 90 minutes long and start at 10 a.m., every third Tuesday of the month, at the Mesilla Valley Public Housing Authority, 926 S. San Pedro Street in Las Cruces.

Since its establishment in January 2012, the commission decides on matters related to annual budgets, federally mandated planning documents, policy documents, tax-credit developments and the annual performance evaluation of the Housing Authority’s executive director.

Applications, comprised of a letter of interest, current resume and three references will be accepted through 5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 19, via one of the following:
