City of Clovis Seeking Developers for 4 acres in Southwest Clovis

The City of Clovis is seeking proposals for the development of single-family homes or senior-housing units on 4 acres in southwest Clovis.  The site is located between Peach and Villa, on W. Santa Ana and W. Rialto Avenues in area known as Rialto Ranchos.  The City, through its redevelopment agency, acquired properties in this area in order to develop affordable single-family housing.  With the elimination of redevelopment the City is now seeking innovative proposals to construct either single-family homes or senior housing units. A Request for Proposal package has been prepared and is available for interested parties by contacting Andy Haussler, Housing Program Manager at andrewh@cityofclovis.com.  All proposals are due by January 15, 2014.

Remember This is Daylight Saving Time

Remember This is Daylight Saving Time

Your smoke alarm has the power to save your life. Or does it? If you haven't tested your smoke alarm lately, it may not be working.  And that's a risk you can't afford to take.  Working smoke alarms give us early warning of a fire, providing extra time to escape safely.  But they can't do their job if you haven’t done yours – testing and replacement of smoke alarm batteries.

As you set your clocks back this November 2nd, take the extra hour you gain and invest that time in replacing the batteries in each of your home smoke alarms.  While replacing the batteries, take a look at the detector and perform some simple maintenance:

·        Using a small vacuum or duster, clean the exterior and interior of any dust that may have accumulated on the alarm.  Dust can reduce the effectiveness of the alarm by interfering with the sensors.

The California citrus industry is facing its biggest threat yet – the Asian citrus psyllid and the disease it can carry, Huanglongbing, also known as HLB or citrus greening disease.

Once trees are infected with HLB, they will eventually die, threatening more than 20,000 jobs and more than 200,000 acres of citrus in California.
