The Clovis City Commission will meet 5:15 p.m. Thursday at the North Annex of the Clovis-Carver Public Library.
Agenda items include:
• A 4:45 p.m. executive session.
• A request to sell assets and initiate legal proceedings against Beauty Health and Science Innovations. The city commission can either accept a private buyer’s offer of $600,000 for the cosmetic company’s assets or conduct an auction to take place within 60 days. An auction would subject the city to commissions, advertising expenses and rent for the facility in Pico Rivera, Calif.
The city spent $1.8 million in economic development money on BHSI last year, but the company fell into financial trouble and defaulted on financial and job creation obligations.
• A $1.111 million budget increase for a project to extend city sewer lines along Martin Luther King Boulevard between Mendenhall Avenue and 21st Street.
The project, partially paid for with $500,000 in community development block grant money with an original city match of $189,000, has changed from a 12-inch pipe size to 18 inches and the overall depth of the line was increased.
• A budget loan of $250,000 from City Fund 48 to fund construction of a training tower burn building and a unit storage facility for the Clovis Fire Department. The money would be repaid through the fire fund budget in the 2013-14 budget.
• Approval of $12,500 to share in the cost of a sewer line extension to the Thomas Estates Subdivision on South Prince Street. The new line will serve about seven homes, and the property owner will handle all other costs.
• A budget transfer of $10,119 to repair two tractors at the Clovis Municipal Airport.
• Approval for a 5K run and 250-meter swim event at Hillcrest Park and the Aquatic Center on April 6. The request will not require any street closures, and event organizers have discussed the matter with facility managers.
• An emergency budget transfer of $2,500 from the general fund to pay an insurance deductible to replace a bronze plaque of Martin Luther King Jr. stolen last week from O.C. Potter Park.
• Approval of a motorcycle awareness parade 10 a.m. May 4 on Main Street between 14th Street and Grand Avenue.
• A request for the Girl Scouts to use the zoo’s Little Safari rental area for an overnight campout, in exchange for a community service project to the zoo.
• A request from Clovis High School’s Gifted and Talented classes to hold a “Project Lead” leadership and charity-raising event at Hillcrest Park on April 13, in exchange for an in-kind project to refurbish trash receptacles at the park.
