Our History

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 enthusiastic, 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 was established.
