Meetings watch: Clovis City Commission

The Clovis City Commission will meet 5:15 p.m. Thursday at the North Annex of the Clovis-Carver Public Library.

Agenda items include:

• Introduction of an ordinance that would combine the Parks and Recreation Board, the Keep Clovis Beautiful Committee and the Ned Houk Park Board. Members of each board have expressed frustration at an inability to obtain quorums.

• A request to approve polling places and election workers for the March 6 municipal elections. There are 50 workers — a precinct judge, two judges and a clerk for 11 election day districts; a precinct judge, judge and clerk at City Hall and three alternates.

• A request to approve a change order in a 40-year water plan. The plan, which has passed the water advisory policy board, is awaiting introduction to the commission following amendments requested by the committee and given to Daniel B. Stephens and Associates of Albuquerque. The water plan was written at a cost of $24,755, and the change order will add another $1,617 to the contracted amount.

• A request to remove uncollectible medical billing accounts from active service for the 2007 calendar year.

• Requests for upholding a dangerous building abatement at 413 Martin Luther King Blvd., and preliminary plat approval of the Dixie End Subdivision. The plat approval passed the planning and zoning commission by a 5-0 vote.

• A vote to appoint a new member to the civil aviation board. Tom Phelps and Stephanie Marshall have applied to fill the vacancy created by Lunell Winton’s resignation from the board.

• Disbursement of $28,000 in lodger’s tax monies. The money, generated by taxes at hotels, would be disbursed to the Ranch Rodeo ($8,000), the Curry County Mounted Patrol ($6,000), the Curry County Cats ($5,000), the Oak Ridge Boys ($4,000), the Miss Rodeo New Mexico pageant ($3,000) and the Clovis Ethnic Fair ($2,000).
