The Clovis City Commission met Thursday at the North Annex of the Clovis-Carver Public Library:
- The city of Clovis granted EPCOR Water New Mexico Inc an easement to drill a well on the northwest corner of the Clovis Civic Center property. EPCOR Water New Mexico will pay the city of Clovis a 1-time $500 dollar fee for the easement. The commission asked Brian Daly, district manager at EPCOR, what the diameter of the well would be and why. Daly told the commission that the well would be 20” in diameter. Daly said that a 20” well proves to be most effective size for pumping water for a well according to engineering studies and observation.
- The commission agreed that Clovis would become a member of the Sister Cities Program. Membership will cost $510 annually, and the fees will come from the general fund.
- The commission agreed to allow the National Contract Management Association to hold a 5k/10k fundraiser at Ned Houk Park on April 13 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. 10% of the proceeds will go to The March of Dimes, while the remainder of the proceeds will go to NCMA’s scholarship program. The scholarships will be awarded to undergraduates and graduates pursuing degrees in business related fields. No road closures will be required and the NCMA will clean-up after the event. There will be no fiscal impact on the city of Clovis.
- K. Barnett and Sons Inc. received the bid to complete Norris Street road improvements. The total cost of the project will be $4,276,717.01. The company will have 270 days to substantially complete the project once they have been issued a notice to proceed. They will have 30 more days to complete the project in its entirety.
- The next meeting is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. March 7 at the North Annex of the Clovis-Carver Public Library.
