Do you know where I can find what the current temperature of Elephant Butte Lake please?

Alan Briley, City Manager:  Good question. I have spent some time trying to find out if somewhere in internet land it has that data. So far I have not been able to find it, but when I was out last week it was 53 degrees. Stay tuned and I will try to find out a link.. Thanks for the question - you stumped me.

Do you know when the paving will continue on San Mateo Street? Only part of the street has been done

Alan Briley, City Manager:  depends on which part of San Mateo. There are still parts of the street which do not have sewer. This portion will be some time yet. The portions that do have sewer, we have a Resolution on the agenda this Wednesday to apply for NMDOT grants to help pave those portions of San Mateo which have sewer. If we get these grants, the paving or chip seal should be done by the end of next year.

Street name is Hallmark Court off of Hallmark Rd, which you can access by Country Club Rd. I was under the impression this road was a covered road (Hallmark Ct.). Please comment on all three of these.

Alan Briley, City Manager:  Ryan - we have had a number of people out looking at this street. The Maintenance contractor did not know this was a street, they thought it was a driveway. They will be working on it in the next couple weeks, but to get a permanent fix, there will have to be some culverts and bar ditches built and stabilized to keep the road from washing. This is on our list as a 'project', but it will be maintained monthly as all of our city dirt streets are. I apologize that it hasn't been kept up, but it will be now.

My street is washed out from the recent floods. Who can I call for the city to do its up keep that I pay my taxes for?

Alan Briley, City Manager:  There has been a great deal of rain. we have fixed to a passable condition all roads, but some still need shoulder work or bar ditch work, or cleaning dirt and debris off. If you give a street name we will be glad to get it on our list of work. Just for information, some streets have not been accepted for maintenance by the city and unfortunately these streets are the responsibility of the developer or the owners. Sorry for your inconvenience and if you let us know a street name i can be more specific.

City of Elephant Butte Site

SUnsetThe City of Elephant Butte is located immediately west of Elephant Butte Lake State Park, New Mexico's largest lake. The area is in the northern edge of the Chihuahuan desert offering high desert climates with warm days, cool nights and very low humidity levels. A wonderful area for year round outdoor activities including golf and fishing.

In July 1998, the City of Elephant Butte became New Mexico's 101st incorporated community. For over a year preceding the incorporation, a group of aggressive, community-minded citizens completed population census and financial analysis, as well as a surveyed citizen attitudes toward incorporation before the actual vote was held. After incorporation, a solid Mayor and Council form of government has been established. There has been statewide recognition of the Rapid progress in establishing Elephant Butte as a major small community.
