The Risk Management Office is tasked with small liability claims, safety, managing our general liability funds, administering the employee drug/alcohol testing program and maintaining insurance coverage for city property and equipment. The City is self-insured and therefore we insure our own risk. Funding for these liability funds comes from gross receipts and utilities revenues.
Risk Management administers a self-insurance program or public liability risks, which is supplemented by purchased excess liability insurance policies. It provides investigation services and settlements of small claims arising from the City’s operation as a municipality and services to the public. The office also ensures the public interest is protected with appropriate insurance policies and recovery of damages to City assets caused by individuals and outside agencies.
All claims against the City of Las Cruces must be made in writing using the Liability Claim Form or the Discolored Water Claim form. Go to Claim Form Instructions for details.
