CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – The City of Clovis is being contacted by the public in relation to a Facebook post alleging the State of New Mexico is requiring city inspectors to shell out fines for workers not having the proper business license to be working during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The post claims city inspectors are “drive[ing] around looking for workers that do not have the required business license, which includes, construction workers, lawn care workers, food delivery workers, food truck workers, etc. so please have these documents on hand. If you are found not having a business license and proper paperwork for your business, you could be fined up to $50,000 and/or shut down per the Governor’s mandated order.”
The City of Clovis says they have not received such a request from the State of New Mexico. If a non-essential business is still open, the New Mexico State Police should be sent an email at email@example.com.
