Annexation up for city council discussion

The Portales City Council is set to consider an increase in the
municipal judge’s salary and a notice of intent dealing with the
Stratton Annexation.

The council meets 7 p.m. today at City Hall.

The agenda also includes a notice of intent to change the zoning of
annexation to R-2, a contract for banking services with First Community
Bank and a resolution to support an application for funding through the
state Department of Transportation for work on U.S. 70.

The council is also to vote on a resolution authorizing the mayor to
execute an amendment to the grant contract with the state Economic
Development Department for a downtown master plan. A report on the plan
is also scheduled.
