Clovis to consider capital outlay requests


November 20, 2019

CLOVIS — The Clovis city commission will get a tour of the city’s new website and consider capital outlay requests for the upcoming New Mexico legislative session.

The meeting, set for 5:15 p.m. Thursday at the North Annex of the Clovis-Carver Public Library, includes a presentation by Tiffany Campion, the city’s marketing, communication and grants coordinator on the revamped website, still located at:

It includes an upgraded mobile device interface with quick front-page links to city departments, videos and city commission documents.

The city last updated the website layout in 2013.

The commission will also consider its top priorities for capital outlay with what is commonly known as an Infrastructure Capital Improvement Plan. Projects suggested by city staff include Seventh Street improvements, an airport fuel island, parking lot improvements at Hillcrest Park, a new animal control building and playground improvements at Dennis Chavez Park.

Other items on the agenda include:

• Consideration of designating a pair of metropolitan redevelopment areas near downtown Clovis, and to apply for a state planning grant that requires a $13,500 match.

• Disbursement of lodgers tax funds totaling $29,957. The Lodgers Tax Advisory Board granted the funding to six requests, with the highest recommendation made for the Clovis Youth Soccer Association’s spring festival ($8,200).

• A request to appoint a working group to review Local Economic Development Grant requirements on out-of-state revenue thresholds. Bandolero Brewing Company has requested $20,000 in LEDA funding, but current LEDA application guidelines require at least half of the applicant’s revenue come from outside of New Mexico.
