City to recognize emergency services


December 7, 2017

CLOVIS — In back-to-back presentations, Clovis city commissioners tonight will recognize the Clovis Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department for its performance in the August library shooting and, on a cheerier note, present awards from this weekend's Christmas parade.

The recognition to the Fire/EMS Department comes from the Clovis Police Department, writing in the meeting packet that "their rapid response and assistance helped our victims and assisted us in taking care of this critical incident."

Categories in the 2017 Light Parade awards include large and small floats, automobile, "People's Choice" and "Best in Show."

Also scheduled for tonight's meeting, 5:15 p.m. at the Clovis-Carver Public Library:

• Eastern New Mexico Water Utility Authority update from Executive Secretary Maggie Chapman.

• Request for approval of discussion on the Clovis Master Water Assurance Plan, first presented to the city commission in August and revised recently in a Water Policy Advisory Committee meeting Dec. 1.

• An executive session concerning "the acquisition or disposal of real property."

• Request to approve an intergovernmental agreement between the city and the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, by which the latter provides grant funds for construction of the Clovis Archery & Winged Shooting Training Center at Ned Houk Park. If approved, the city "will go ahead with the environmental and archaeological reports for the area."

• Request to approve a new liquor license for a Clovis' Pizza Hut. The restaurant has a license but had a recent change to its stockholders, meaning it is considered new ownership.

• Request to approve the transfer of $21,000 "out of the excess funds in the non-recurring lighting and Hillcrest trails fund" to finance the design and construction of an 18-hole disc golf course at Ned Houk Park. The transfer is part of a proposed agreement between the city and the Clovis Disc Golf Club.

• Request to award K. Barnett and Sons, Inc. a Seventh Street reconstruction project, to include the installation of two 60-inch pipes for storm drain improvements between Ingram Channel and Norris Street. The bid is for $1,005,586, almost half of which will come from a Department of Transportation grant and the remaining $505,586 coming from a transfer from the city's drainage fund.
