Clovis City Commission
The Clovis City Commission meets 5:15 p.m. Tuesday at the north annex of the Clovis-Carver Public Library. The meeting is rescheduled from Thursday due to the Independence Day holiday.
Agenda items include:
• Appointment of two Clovis representatives to serve on the Eastern New Mexico Water Utility Authority. The terms currently served by former Mayor Gayla Brumfield and City Commissioner Juan Garza expire at the end of June.
• A change order of $200,000 for Norris Street roadway improvement project to allow for storm drain system extensions.
• A request to allow Citizens for Prairie Dogs to trap and relocate prairie dogs on city-owned property at Potter Park and Goodwin Lake Trails. The item was originally to be discussed during the June 21 meeting but was withdrawn to give commissioners and staff more time to fully research the issue.
• Introduction of an ordinance to bring the city within state regulations on payment of current year property taxes before filing a final subdivision plat and certification of water availability of a new subdivision if water rights were severed from the subdivided land.
• A request from the Food Bank of Eastern New Mexico to hold a flea market Aug. 3 at the food bank’s location on Brady Street. The organization needs commission consent because the land is owned by the city.
• Re-appointment of Peter Penney, Twila Rutter and Shelley Winn on the Clovis-Carver Library Board. All three expressed an interest in continuing to serve the board, and no other applications were received.
• Approval of Susanna Gonzales and John Murphy to serve the lodger’s tax advisory board as representatives from industries primarily serving tourists. Both are in management at local hotels.
• A request for a Family Fun Day 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Aug. 10 at Hillcrest Park, with a waiver of fees for the splash pad and the zoo. The fee waiver is expected to add up to $1,100, which event organizer Rooney Moon Broadcasting plans to address by providing free advertising and promotion of the event.
• A request by Clovis Christian Schools to hold a 5K at Ned Houk Park Sept. 7.
• A street closure and noise variance request for a block party Friday on the 3400 block of Lew Wallace. The applicants agreed to pay the $150 fee and received signatures from neighbors.
