Public Records Request

Public Records

The City Clerk serves as the Custodian of Records for the City of Las Cruces. By law, under the Inspection of Public Records Act (IPRA), every person has the right to inspect public records maintained by the City of Las Cruces. The Act also makes compliance with requests to inspect public records as an integral part of the routine duties of the officers and employees of the City of Las Cruces. It is the responsibility of the City to make public records available for inspection.

Anyone may request public records by contacting the City Clerk's Office in person, by mail, e-mail or through the Records Request Portal. All written requests are responded to pursuant to the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act.
