CIity seeks public input on upgrades needed in Clovis

The City of Clovis will hold a public meeting at 10 a.m., Wednesday, August 26th, 2009 at the Assembly Room of City Hall, 321 Connelly 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. Examples of such projects include: Widening Norris Street from Wilhite to Llano Estacado and building a new community wellness center.

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.
