  • A message to the Citizens of Aztec from Mayor Victor Snover:

    First, I want to say that I hope you are doing okay as we all attempt to navigate this ever shifting terrain of the past couple of weeks. We are encountering uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 virus and with the quick moving nature of this pandemic, it may, at times, seem overwhelming and confusing for ourselves, our friends, and our families and loved ones.

    Aztec City staff has been closely monitoring and communicating with our federal, state, county, and other local agencies, and is doing their best to keep us informed of all up to date information regarding closures of businesses, availability of services, and pick up points for meals from our Aztec Senior Center as well as for meal pick up points for children while schools remain closed.

    The Aztec City Manager along with city staff have been working diligently to keep updated information on the city's webpage as well as social media platforms, specifically our City of Aztec Facebook page. Local media outlets have also been working overtime to keep folks as informed as possible. We also realize that not all families/homes have access to cell service and/or internet service so I encourage you to use available methods to check in with friends, family, and neighbors that may not have ready access to information, and keep them up to date as good as you are able.

    For now, we are all doing our best to disseminate information, while still keeping our community members, and ourselves, safe and healthy through this public health emergency.

    In addition to city information sources, I encourage you to tune into local news sources and reach out to local governmental agencies with questions or concerns and our staff will do their very best to give accurate and updated information.

    Stay safe and follow the directives and policies being formulated and disseminated from our health and safety experts, don't be afraid to ask questions and be as flexible and patient as possible. We are truly all in this together and it's important to stick together and work together as a community in times like the ones we currently face.

    In solidarity and with our collective strength and resolve, we will make it through this challenge.

    Sincerely, Mayor Victor Snover

    Effective March 18, 2020, we are temporarily closing residential call centers to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
    We are actively coordinating remote operations to serve our customers during this situation with the goal of resuming residential call handing as soon as possible.
    At this time, there is no impact to your scheduled residential collection service.
    For the most up-to-date service information, please encourage residents to visit

    We appreciate your partnership and patience as we navigate this fluid situation together.

    Recycling Convenience Center & Trash Disposal Closure

    The Recycling Convenience Center & Trash Disposal located at the General Services / Parks facility on Ash Avenue is closed to public use as of February 29th, 2020. Citizens are asked to use curb side recycling services (1x month pick-up) and the San Juan County Landfill for bulk disposal (6 allotted free per year).

    Upcoming Elections

    As we approach upcoming elections, the City of Aztec wants to remind all candidates and campaigners no sign permit is needed for temporary campaign signs. However, no sign can be placed on public property or public right-of-way, as the City of Aztec and the State of New Mexico remain apolitical. Lastly, please do not place signs on lot corners, as this may impede the vision and clearance for traffic safety. The City of Aztec remains committed to the health, safety, and well being of all our residents and the public at large. Please do not hesitate to contact the Community Development Department with any questions or concerns pertaining to such matters (505) 334-7605 or (505) 804-3314.
