Sheriff James Lujan your 100% right ,why would anybody with all there senses wanna hire a guy for chief who has to travel 200 miles round trip ( I measured it ) who claims to have been in law enforcement with 15 years under his belt and a instuctor at the law enforcement academy, with all his experience , yet his officers are never around ,and when you do see them , they are either at walmart or lowes parked, all four or six cars . while the rest of our town goes unprotected ,yup Mr. Lujan ,mr. jimenez is not experienced for the job,hes just a big ole cry baby,who does not know how to run a department, his officers don't even know how to write a report, we need someone who is from here and knows the people,not someone who uses us as a stepping stone for his resume

City crews are out busily handling some pothole damage repair on East Pueblo Drive which have been a major issue for several years. The overall goal is the City will continue to work to secure funding for the eventual repaving of the entire roadway.


We are experiencing a widespread outage affecting the West Side of the city attributed to a malfunction valve at Northern New Mexico College. We hope to have service restored very soon to the residents.


¡Buenos días la valle de Española! It’s always important that we “Believe In Our Valley, Love Our Valley!” This billboard depicts Downtown Española on Oñate Street circa 1930s.

City staff are busily working on the restoration of many of our medians in the City especially the gateway medians located near Trujillo Loop which greet visitors and locals alike to the east and west sides of our community.




For Immediate Release: Event Postponed


Mayor Vigil will be on KDCE 950AM at 9:00am this morning to discuss the new direction for the City of Española as well as some upcoming events in our community.


🚒 Exciting News from the Española Fire Department! 🚒

We're thrilled to announce that our Fire Department has made significant progress. Our ISO (Insurance Services Office) rating has improved from 5 to 4, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our entire team. 🌟

ISO evaluates various factors such as training hours, personnel, apparatus, equipment, and city water supply. While we aimed for a rating of 3, this is a significant step in the right direction. 🔥

So, what does this mean for you? Starting Dec 1st, you're eligible for lower home or commercial insurance rates. Reach out to your insurance provider on that date to see how much you can save. 💰

We want to express our gratitude to our incredible department for their efforts in lowering the city's ISO rating. Teamwork makes the dream work! 🙌👨‍🚒👩‍🚒
