Residents have until May 26, 2021 to provide input on new Las Cruces Utilities Natural Gas Rate Review options. Las Cruces Utilities (LCU) is a department of the City of Las Cruces but is not funded by tax dollars. It has been 10 years since LCU last reviewed natural gas rate charges. The current gas rate review reflects cost increases in wages and benefits, gas system maintenance and safety compliance, and vehicle and equipment maintenance and replacement.
The three options are:

1). A full cost implementation of new rates in one year;
2). A limited phased-in cost increase for the two most impacted customer classes (small and large commercial) over three years;
3). A full phased-in cost increase for all customer classes over three years.

Information is located on the LCU website at Utility Customer Advisory Group (UCAG) | Las Cruces, NM ( and two virtual meetings are scheduled at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 5 and 3 p.m. Wednesday, May 12.

The meetings will be by Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic and public health orders by the New Mexico Governor’s Office and New Mexico Department of Health, no in-person public meetings will be hosted by the City of Las Cruces throughout phase two of the pandemic. Attendees may access the meeting through the City’s website at the Community Engagement Office web page at  You must be a registered user of Zoom before you can sign up to attend this meeting.
