Spending at City Hall Skyrocketing!
By Amy Williams, Assoc. Editor

      CLOVIS -- In an early Tuesday morning gathering at the Veterans Hall, a group of supporters for expansion of the Cottonwood Park amenities were surprised to hear from Clovis Mayor, Harry Armstrong's own lips about the extent of City Hall's spending projects for still more changes all over town since January.
      First and foremost, he told an overflow audience of the $2.8 million federal grant just received by the City to help finance a regional Technology Park adjacent to the new Freeway 168. And Armstrong expanded on how well developers and the Clovis Redevelopment Agency have worked out another revision to the Old Town plan which will demolish an enormous historic 19th Century barn on Third Street to make way for yet another John Jay Hotel and shopping Center around the first of the year.
      To support much of the cost to City expansion, the Mayor recently pushed through a dramatic local Sales Tax increase of $15 million. Armstrong says he also wants an improved telephone/radio system for City Hall and new building additions for police and fire.
