2019 Business Registrations Mailing

Business registration renewals for the calendar year 2019 have been mailed to all businesses within city of Hobbs city limits. However, the 2019 bills did not reflect the renewal fee of $25.00, which is due on or before January 31st. The Clerk’s Office sincerely apologizes for this error and inconvenience to all Hobbs businesses, and revised billing notices will be mailed to show the amount due. The fee of $25.00 is the same amount as prior years.

The Hobbs City Code requires all businesses located within the city limits to obtain a business registration each calendar year. Renewals may be obtained in the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall, 200 East Broadway, Hobbs, New Mexico. If your business is no longer in operation or if any of the business information has changed, please contact the Clerk's Office at (575) 397-9200 to update your business’s information. Credit card payments for business registration renewals can be handled over the telephone by using Visa, Master Card, or Discover. Businesses can also renew an existing business registration fee on the City’s website by clicking on “self service” and following the instructions listed there.

A $10.00 late penalty will be added to all unpaid business registrations beginning February 1, 2019.

HFD Fundraising Scam Phone Calls

The Hobbs Fire Department wishes to issue a warning to members of the public of a fundraising phone call scam using the name of the Hobbs Fire Department.

The perpetrator(s) is/are cold-calling individuals requesting money, stating the request is on behalf of the Hobbs Fire Department. The phone number has been traced to a third-party caller ID spoof technology that is not trackable to any residence or phone line account holder. The spammer states something similar to the following in their dishonest request: "Hello, my name is John Smith. I am calling to raise money for the Hobbs Fire Department and we would like you to participate in contributing funds to the department."

This is in no way approved by the Hobbs Fire Department or City of Hobbs, and this organization will not call a resident or business to request money. If you receive such a phone call, please hang up without giving any personal information and report it to the Hobbs Police Department at (575)397-9265.
