SILVER CITY, N.M. (AP) - The Silver City school board has given its school chief a raise despite a heated meeting and objections from some residents.

The Silver City Sun-News reports (https://goo.gl/kIhpHe) that Silver Consolidated School District Board of Education voted this week to give Superintendent Lon Streib a 3.5 percent increase.

Some residents spoke out against the move after board members went into executive session and came out to vote on the increase.

Board members say no open record laws were violated.

The move comes after a recent election ousted two board members. Board President Trent Petty was defeated in his bid for re-election on Feb. 3 by challenger Frances Vasquez by a margin of 407-40.
