City of Las Cruces Seeks Oversight Committee Member

Front of City Hall

The City of Las Cruces is accepting applications for its Oversight Committee. The Oversight Committee is a management committee and not a public board. City Council approved the creation of the Oversight Committee in November of 2018 to continue the City’s commitment to transparency and accountability. 

The Committee assists the City in reviewing audits, and investigating and strategically reviewing reports at each meeting. Members may be asked to provide written budget recommendations for the Inspector General and City Auditor. It may also provide recommendations for operations related to the duties and responsibilities of the Inspector General and the City Auditor to the City Attorney, the City Manager, and the City Council during annual budget review. The committee can also provide recommendations for priorities and potential areas for investigations and audits to the city auditor and inspector general. 

The Oversight Committee shall consist of three members who are residents of the city and who are not employed by the city, or in a direct contractual relationship with the city. At least one committee member shall be a certified public accountant or auditor. At least one committee member shall have law enforcement or legal background. At least one committee member shall have experience or background in professional management or business. Committee members will serve on staggered three-year terms which shall begin October 1.  

A committee member has recently vacated a position, allowing for the placement of a new member with a law enforcement or legal background.

Members usually meet monthly, but may also be asked to meet additionally upon call of the chair or majority of members. This is a volunteer position with no compensation for service. Voting members may not serve on other city boards, commissions, or task forces.  

Applications may be obtained on the City’s Website: https://onboard.las-cruces.org/board/1893.  For more information, contact the City Clerk’s office at 575/541-2115 or email crivera@las-cruces.org
