Meetings watch: Clovis City Commission

The Clovis City Commission will meet 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the North Annex of the Clovis-Carver Public Library.

Agenda items include:

  • A request to approve a preliminary budget for 2012-13, due to the Department of Finance and Administration by Friday.

The budget to be submitted to the commission is for $39.73 million, down about 6 percent from the 2011-12 preliminary budget of $42.22 million.

The estimated ending cash for the city's general fund is $2.01 million. The state requires a minimum of one-12th of the general fund expenditures as reserves — about $1.85 million, in Clovis' case.

The budget includes no salary increases.

The final budget will be submitted to the commission for approval in late July.

  • Request to approve a farm lease at the Clovis Municipal Airport.

When the city began construction of the runway extension project at the airport, modifications were made to a pair of existing farm lease agreements.

One of the tenants, Donnie Wall, died recently, and his widow, Nara Wall, has indicated a desire to continue with the lease.
