The Clovis Police Department would like to remind everyone the local schools are back in session as of Monday, August 18, 2014. In the morning hours, prior to school and in the afternoon following school letting out, Officers of the Clovis Police Department will be conducting speed enforcement and traffic safety patrols in the designated school zones. Officers will be specifically targeting speeders in these areas. The school zones are clearly marked and are a maximum speed of 15 Miles Per Hour. We are asking everyone to please pay special attention to your speed and watch out for the children and crossing guards, as well as, school buses loading and offloading children at schools and in the neighborhoods.
The Clovis Police Department would like to remind you that Officers will be out in force to make sure that the children and crossing guards are safe in the designated school zones all school year. There is a Zero Tolerance Policy for speeding in school zones. The fine for speeding in a school zone is $161. It is also illegal to pass a stopped or stopping school bus that has its stop sign deployed and flashing warning lights activated. The fine for passing a school bus when loading or unloading children is also $161.
The City of Clovis will hold two public meetings one at 12:00 p.m., Monday, August 18th, 2014 at the Assembly Room, Clovis City Hall, 321 N. Connelly, Clovis and the other at 5:30 p.m., Monday, August 18th, 2014 at the Ingram Room, Clovis-Carver Library, 701 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.
