CNJ staff

The Clovis City Commission quickly approved its only agenda item Wednesday, an amendment to the Hotel Clovis lease agreement with Tierra Realty of Taos.

The company is seeking Housing and Urban Development HOME funds, and needed to alter the lease agreements to include HUD environmental assessment requirements.

The company is trying to renovate the hotel, owned by the city since 2004, into senior housing.

The commission moved to vote without discussion and approved the amendment by a 7-0 vote.
