Clovis expected to pass police contract agreement


August 7, 2019

CLOVIS — A new agreement between the city of Clovis and its police officers isn’t expected to draw much opposition, with a few changes in language and a 2.5 percent salary increase set for presentation to the Clovis city commission on Thursday night.

The contract agreement between the city and the Clovis Police Officers Association — officers collectively bargain, unlike other city employees — is on the consent agenda for the 5:15 p.m. meeting at the North Annex of the Clovis-Carver Public Library. That agenda is for routine items not expected to draw debate.

The agreement updates salary ranges for officers ($45,865-$51,082) master officers ($45,108-$56,385) and sergeants ($49,790-$62,238).

Other items on Thursday’s agenda include:

• Four separate resolutions to condemn and demolish dangerous structures. The structures are located at 309 Venus, 1121 Beta, 308 Delores and 1117 Apollo. Another resolution authorizes moving debris from a burned structure at 1120 Lea St.

• A request to authorize the Curry Resident Senior Meals Association to apply for $19,000 in capital outlay monies to purchase a fryer, slicer, 30-quarter mixer, four computers and various pots and pans.

• A request for the Clovis Area Transit System to apply for $674,000 in Federal Transit Administration grants. There is a city match requirement of $422,000.

• Recognition of John Bowman for 23 years of service in the city’s public works department.

• Reports regarding the upcoming Old Timers Celebration and the July 27 Clovis Ethnic Fair.

• Appointment of a voting delegate and alternate for the New Mexico Municipal League’s annual conference Aug. 28-30 in Las Cruces.
