As part of the City’s commitment to
improve customer service, safety, and to keep its facilities in proper shape
and appearance, City of Las Cruces Public Works/Facilities Management has
contracted with a local service provider to replace ceiling tiles at selected
locations throughout Las Cruces City Hall, 700 N. Main St.
Work is expected to start on Thursday,
August 8, 2019, and continue for as long as three weeks. Facilities staff
will contact each City department and schedule the work to minimize
inconvenience or interruption to operations at each location.
Also, as part of the City’s ongoing
commitment to address consistency of service, compliance with the American’s
with Disabilities Act (ADA), and to help meet sustainability goals, Public
Works/Facilities Management has begun removing and replacing battery-operated
soap dispensers at City Hall. Replacement of the units started this week and is
expected to be complete by next week. The changes will be made outside of usual
operational hours at City Hall.
Input from customers as well as
maintenance issues experienced by custodial staff have shown the battery
operated hands-free sensor units have not lived up to expectations in terms of
ease of use, expected equipment life, battery life, and availability and
quantity of soap dispensed. This will simplify replacement needs if a
soap dispenser fails and will reduce the amount and type of inventory needed to
be kept on-hand.
Facilities Management has worked closely
with the custodial supply vendor and determined that replacing the units with
manual push-lever types will provide much improved customer service and assist
with standardization of equipment in restrooms. Once this process is
complete at City Hall, Facilities Management will also be working with site
managers to help implement this change throughout the City – based on needs at
a given site to meet customer expectations. Further notices will be
issued at a later date.
