Accountability

“Accountability breeds response-ability.” Stephen R. Covey

Transparency and accountability are essential to a democratic government. The City of Las Cruces recognizes and accepts its responsibility to account for its activities, to take ownership of them, and disclose results in a transparent manner. As the stewards of public funds, the City has a moral and legal obligation to demonstrate to taxpayers that the monies they entrust to their city government are spent and accounted for properly and legally.
