    CLOVIS -- A proposed budget representing 102% of the funds needed in 1999. The $117.8 million budget for the City of Clovis looks like its a go! Approval of the spending of $117.8 millions is just fine with Clovis Mayor Harry Armstrong who says its not enough. In a report to the City Council this week, Clovis City Manager, Kathy Millison it would have to do for the 70,746 residents public safety, transportation and street repairs, sewer, water and trash services, recreation, and pet projects. Highlights of the budget include:
      In addition to the burgronoing 373 full-time City Hall administration, another 17 City workers will be hired, including yet another computer tech.
     This year's budget is based on the assumption that "...the best way to reach a healthier economy is to encourage private-sector investment in business and industry that employ more of our citizens..." according to City Manager, Kathy Millison.
      Whether or not this proposed increase in spending is approved by he City Council will be resolved at the hearings on its merits conducted starting on June 7th. and continuing every Monday evening at City Council meeetings. Final approval is set for Monday June 19th at 7:00 p.m. in Council Chambers.
