Utilities Update

The City of Truth or Consequences wishes to thank our customers for their continued patience during the computer conversion for the Utility Department. We are almost there! We have finally worked through all of the issues that we encountered over the last several months for billing cycles. What customers can expect over the next few months is as follows: Cycle D billing will encounter November corrections on their December bill (which is scheduled to go out the week of February 4, 2016). All other cycles (A, B and C) can expect to get their bills the week of February 8, 2016. We apologize that these bills are late, but unfortunately, there was no way around this. There will be no late fees assessed or red tag issued for any of these accounts (A, B, C or D). If you continued to pay any amount on your bill even though you did not get a bill, the City graciously thanks you. We understand that the bills are late going out, and we will make arrangements with you regarding payments. In addition, to get back on track with the billing cycles, we will have to again issue bills for the current month shortly after you get the bills that should have gone out in January. Again, we apologize and will work with our customers on any issues they encounter. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lori at 894-6673 extension 310. While we all appreciate technology upgrades, they are not without their issues at times. Thank you for your kindness to our staff during this trying time.

More Information on Utility Billing Software Conversion

With the delayed billing occurring, the City encourages all residents to make a minimum payment to your account on or about your regularly scheduled due date. You can make the payment in any amount that you wish, or pay the amount that was due last month. This will keep your bill at a reasonable level and will not overly burden you when the billing issue gets resolved. If you have arranged with the utility office to pay your account via autodraft, please contact the utility office immediately. Again, thank you for your patience. --Updated January 4, 2016

The issue with incorrect billing on the new Utility Billing Software has been determined to be a programming error on the part of the software vendor. This is being corrected by the vendor however the new, corrected, software will not be installed until after New Years. As a result, no utility bills will be issued until this correction is made. None of our customers will be charged any late fees due to late billing while our software vendor fixes this problem. Thank, again, for your patience while we work the bugs out of this conversion process. --Updated December 23, 2015

Conversion of Utility Billing Software to New System

The city is aware that there have been some problems in converting our utility billing system to use new software. We are working with the vendor of this software to resolve the issues as quickly as possible. If you have any questions or believe that your utility bill is in error, please either call our utility office at 575-894-6671 or stop in at the utility office at 505 Sims St, TorC. Thank you for your patience.
