All About Deming, New Mexico!

Mayor's Corner

Spring is here in Southern New Mexico!

It's a great time of year as we head into summer, and as always, the City of Deming is busy preparing to meet the seasonal needs of the community. We are busy prepping the pool and working on fields for baseball, softball, and summer recreation programs. We have recently collaborated with Deming Public Schools in an effort to reduce costs and provide smooth, safe playing surfaces for the children in our community. This collaboration has allowed for the purchase of turf cleaning equipment which will be used on our baseball and softball fields. This will allow us to clean the turf multiple times per year, serving to extend the life of the material and create substantial savings by not having to contract that service.

Looking back I also realize that two years have passed since my election, and one request that the City Council and I have consistently heard is that we make an investment in our streets. I'm happy to report that City Council voted unanimously for the purchase of an "Asphalt Zipper". This machine will effectively take our worst streets, cut and grind the uneven roadway, then lay the reworked asphalt down as a smooth, clean surface. This process gives us the option of sealing the road allowing us to extend its life.

April was the start of the City's budget preparation for the upcoming fiscal year. With the loss of the Hold Harmless Gross Receipts Tax distribution, staff and Council continue to implement efficiencies and discuss different methods of providing services that benefit the community and the City, and hope to continue to provide a high level of service at the current funding levels.

I am also happy to report that construction on the new Deming High School building begins this month. Congratulations to DPS and the community, as this proves we believe in the investment of our children through education.

Have a great summer!!

Public Service Announcements

CITY OF DEMING-Solid Waste Collection Update

The Mayor, City Councilors and staff evaluated public input regarding Solid Waste Collection options. Upon review of these comments and suggestions, staff recommends a multi-pronged approach. In areas with narrow alley or no alley at all, mandatory poly carts will be recommended. All other residential properties will be on a "by demand" basis. Several comments still need to be addressed and are summarized in the bullet points below.

  • Safety
  • Code Enforcement
  • Alley cleanliness
  • Poly cart exceptions
  • Pick up schedules
  • Etc.

Staff is preparing an amended solid waste ordinance to include specifics for both voluntary and mandatory use of poly carts. The draft will be made available in late June or early July for public review followed by a public meeting. Comments and suggestions will be evaluated and incorporated into the draft ordinance, if warranted. Time and place of the meeting is to be determined but sufficient advertising is planned to ensure the public has had adequate time to review and comment on the draft ordinance before a final draft is presented to City Council.
