The City of Clovis would like to invite the public to attend a ribbon cutting at 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016, at the Clovis-Carver Library parking lot for a purple parking spot designated for combat wounded veterans.
The suggestion for designated purple parking spots around the city for combat wounded veterans was brought to the City’s attention by Clovis resident Nathan McCreery. “The purpose of the purple parking spots is to recognize and honor our combat wounded veterans when they visit City of Clovis facilities,” advised Clovis Mayor David Lansford, Friday. Purple parking spots are initially being installed not only at the Clovis-Carver Library but at City Hall and the Clovis Municipal Airport.
For questions or further information, please contact the City Manager’s Office at (575) 769-7828.
Resurfacing work of the pool at the Hillcrest Park Aquatics Center began August 8th. The pool will be closed to the public for approximately 2-3 week while this work is completed.
For questions or further information, please contact Kathleen Jeffs with the City of Clovis Aquatics Center at (575) 769-4519.
The City of Clovis will hold a public meeting at 1:30 p.m., Friday, August 5th, 2016 at the Ingram Room, Clovis-Carver Library, 701 N. Main Street, Clovis to discuss major projects/purchases that should be included on the City’s Infrastructure and Capital Improvement Plan (ICIP). Residents of Clovis are invited to attend and provide input on projects they believe should be included.
The ICIP is a document that is revised each year to show major projects the City hopes to accomplish within the next five years. A “major” project is defined as one that exceeds $15,000 and is a one-time cost. Projects must also fall under the responsibility of local government and not be related to private business.
Municipalities and counties all over New Mexico submit their ICIPs to the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration each year, and state legislators use these documents to decide which projects will receive state capital outlay funding in subsequent years.
Should you have any questions or comments regarding this meeting, please contact the City Manager’s Office at 575-769-7828.
