Las Cruces Installs New Utility Payment Box Following Vandalism

Mar 18, 2013

  The City of Las Cruces has installed a new, drive-up utility payment drop box in the parking lot between City Hall, 700 N. Main St., and Branigan Library, 200 E. Picacho Ave.

The drive-up box replaces the walk-up receptacle that was removed after it was vandalized.

“The utility payment drop box is a popular and convenient method of payment for customers of Las Cruces Utilities. So instead of replacing the walk-up box, we made it a drive-up box. Now, customers don’t even have to leave their car to pay their city bill,” said Robert Scaling, treasurer for the City of Las Cruces. “
