The Las Cruces City Council will meet via video conference at 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23, 2020, for a work session.

At Monday’s work session City Council will be updated on the City’s Mobile Integrated Healthcare program, conducted through the Las Cruces Fire Department (LCFD). The mission of LCFD in regard to this program is to provide compassionate care and dedication to all 911 emergency calls.

There is a desire within LCFD to help individuals who frequently call 911 to access health care without any acute life-threatening conditions. The City’s Mobile Integrated Healthcare program has recognized that addressing individuals who highly utilize 911 is an essential strategy for managing the emergency response, healthcare costs, and providing City residents with a better quality of life.

The Council will also be updated on the City’s Limited English Proficiency Plan (LEP) during Monday’s work session. The purpose of the LEP is to enhance awareness of the need, and methods the City uses, to ensure LEP persons have meaningful access to federally assisted programs; ensure implementation of language access; and compliance with the requirements and regulations of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 

Additionally, on July 17, 2020, the City entered into a settlement agreement with the estate of Antonio Valenzuela. As part of the agreement, the City agreed to present to the City Council various policies for the Las Cruces Police Department in regard to the use of force. Those policies will be discussed at Monday’s work session.

The work session will be televised live on Comcast Cable channel 20. It will also be available online at and at
