The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is responsible for providing City departments with fiscal planning, analysis, and management services to enable the City organization to provide City services in accordance with the policies, goals and objectives established by the City Manager and the Las Cruces City Council. The Office of Management and Budget coordinates the preparation of the City’s Operating and Capital budgets, which is the “action plan” used to implement the goals and objectives of the City Council. OMB also manages the Grants section.

With the direction provided by the City Council strategic plan, the dedication of our employees, and the support of our community, the City of Las Cruces provides the highest level of municipal services with our available resources. Once the operating budget is finalized it becomes the roadmap to providing programs and services to the community.

Budget Report

The City budget is the “Action Plan” used to implement the goals and objectives of the City Council. PEAK, or performance-based budgeting, isolates the costs of the City’s operation by dividing the organization into different lines of business and programs, and includes the direct and indirect costs of labor, contractual services, materials and supplies. 

The Neighborhood Guide to the Budget outlines how the budget is written in easy-to-follow charts and information.
