Clovis approves logo for marketing and press releases


Last updated 10/23/2021 at 3:20pm

CLOVIS — The Clovis city commission voted at its Thursday meeting to approve a city of Clovis logo that will be released to use on city marketing materials and press releases instead of the city seal.

Kelsey Knight, the city’s marketing, communications and grant coordinator said the logo is a spin-off of the one first adopted by the Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce as a community brand.

The purpose of the logo is to unify materials released from Clovis and will be used on marketing materials and press releases, Knight said.

The seal will remain in use on the city flag and official documents.

In other business at the Thursday meeting, which The News covered virtually:

• The commission presented a plaque in recognition of the retirement of Reuben Gonzales, former director of the Roy Walker Recreation Center, for his 41 years of service to Clovis.

• The commission also presented plaques to volunteers in the Trek for Trash 2021. Volunteers included the Yucca Middle School Student Council, Enlisted service people from the Air Commando, Clovis Community College and first place to the Family Career Community Leaders of America.

• The commission received a report on redistricting efforts in Clovis based on data accumulated from the 2020 Census. The new districts, when approved, would be in place for the March 2022 municipal election. The city’s four districts should each have about 9,642 citizens — one-fourth of the 38,567 total population — with 5% deviation allowed for each district. District 3 (4.4% drop) is the only district currently within that deviation — District 1 grew 20.5%, District 2 fell 11.9% and District 4 grew 5.2%.

• The commission approved a temporary $50 adoption fee for animals adopted through the city’s animal shelter until an ad hoc committee can amend the adoption process. The fee includes $10 for a rabies certification, $10 for a microchip fee, a $5 administrative fee, and a $25 charge that is refundable with proof the animal was spayed or neutered.

• Clyde Davis was appointed to the city’s parks, recreation and beautification committee.

• The city commission will next meet at 5:15 p.m. Nov. 4 in the North Annex of the Clovis-Carver Public Library.
