The Las Cruces City Council will meet via video conference at 1 p.m. Monday, Dec. 21, 2020, for a regularly scheduled meeting.

City Council will consider the adoptions of two separate Resolutions regarding the construction of General Obligation Bond projects. One Resolution would approve a contract with Jaynes Corp., of Las Cruces, for construction of Fire Station No. 3, on Valley Drive. The contract to build the fire station would not exceed, $4,525,017.

The City requires construction services for the new Fire Station No. 3. The new facility will be built on an approximately 1.5-acre parcel belonging to the City and adjacent to the existing Fire Station No. 3, on Valley Drive. Fire service and emergency response will not be hindered or delayed and will remain as status quo while construction is underway at the adjacent parcel.

Las Cruces voters approved the construction of a new Fire Station No. 3 as part of the 2018 GO Bond Program. Funding will be done by utilizing $4,386,504 of GO Bond funds and $138,513 from the Solar Energy Photovoltaic Project, of the Capital Improvement Plan.

A second Resolution would approve an amendment to the contract for design-build services for the walking, jogging, biking recreational trails project. The proposed amendment would increase the contract amount to $2,244.278.98. However, the proposed contract increase will not change the amount City voters approved in GO bonds for that project.

As the design of the project nears completion, Highland Enterprises, of Las Cruces, the contractor for the project, needs to move forward with the construction of the trails. The amendment includes the construction of the Mesilla Drain Trail, Armijo Lateral Trail, and the Las Cruces Lateral Trail.

City staff has recommended approval of the amendment in the amount of $2,255,278.98, plus applicable taxes and contingency. Updated information on the City’s GO bond projects can be found online by clicking here.

Included among additional agenda items City Council could consider during Monday’s meeting are:

  • A Resolution reaffirming the City Council’s support of various legislative priorities the City of Las Cruces has presented in previous sessions of the New Mexico Legislature.
  • A Resolution authorizing a settlement agreement with Doña Ana County and American Medical Response regarding an application by the City and the Las Cruces Fire Department for a certificate to provide ambulance service to City residents.
  • A Resolution approving the RoadRUNNER Transit Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan.
  • An Ordinance that could repeal and replace Chapter 15, Labor-Management Relations of the Las Cruces Municipal Code.

Monday’s meeting will be televised live on CLC-TV, Comcast Cable channel 20. The meeting will also be available online at and at
