IID Board discusses voting process

(IID Directors discuss changing the way Directors are voted on)…No decision was made.

The question before the Board is whether to change the voting process for Director from the current at-large process to voting by District. During their meeting this week, the Board seemed to favor putting the question to the voters. Interim General Counsel Ross G. Simmons presented the question to the Board Tuesday. Simmons recommended the issue be placed on the November 4th, 2014 ballot. He said if that is the Board’s desire, then they need to announce their intent by March 7th, 2014. The IID Board decided to table a decision until after the New Year. Currently all voters choose all Imperial Irrigation District Directors. The change would call for each district to vote on the Director representing their individual District.
