[ARCHIVED] City of Las Cruces Seeks Oversight Committee Members

Las Cruces City Hall

The City of Las Cruces is accepting applications for its Oversight Committee. The Oversight Committee is a management committee and not a public board. City Council approved the creation of the Oversight Committee in November 2018 to continue the City’s commitment to transparency and accountability. Its implementation has been delayed due to changes in administration and changes to the process.

The Committee assists the City in reviewing audits and investigating and strategically reviewing reports at each meeting. Members may be asked to provide written budget recommendations for the Inspector General and City Auditor. It may also provide recommendations for operations related to the duties and responsibilities of the Inspector General and the City Auditor to the City Attorney, the City Manager, and the City Council during the annual budget review. The committee can also provide recommendations for priorities and potential areas for investigations and audits to the city auditor and inspector general.

The Oversight Committee shall consist of three members who are residents of the city and who are not employed by the city, or in a direct contractual relationship with the city. At least one committee member shall be a certified public accountant or auditor. At least one committee member shall have a law enforcement or legal background. At least one committee member shall have experience or background in professional management or business. Committee members will serve on staggered three-year terms which shall begin October 1.

Members can expect to meet at least four times a year, but may also be asked to meet additionally upon the call of the chair or majority of members. This is a volunteer position with no compensation for service. Voting members may not serve on other city boards, commissions, or task forces.

The mayor and one councilor appointed annually by the council shall be non-voting ex officio members. The mayor and the appointed councilor may send designees to the committee meetings. The committee may request the attendance of other city personnel or auditees.

 Applications may be obtained on the City’s Website: For information, contact the City Clerk’s office at 575/541-2115 or email
