Three members of the Town of Taos Planning & Zoning Commission were left befuddled when they recently received letters informing them they had termed out of their positions. Commissioners Pavel Lukes, Doug Patterson and Billy Romero all received letters from the town government telling them their terms were up. This now leaves the commission with just two members - not enough to call a quorum.
The town explained that the term limits had been set for some time, but said COVID-19 got in the way and the town had "accidentally overlooked the annual reappointment of advisory boards and commissions and had let it slide for a few months after realizing it," said town of Taos manager Rick Bellis in an email.
