(IID approves GM contract)…The vote was unanimous.
The Imperial Irrigation District Board made the decision in closed session Tuesday. They agreed to give Kevin Kelley another two-year contract to serve as General Manager for the District. Many Board members said they were impressed with the stability to the IID and stability was much needed. Details of the new contract will be released as soon as they are typed up. Directors James Hanks and Bruce Kuhn said there were virtually no changes from the former contract. They said Kelley will continue to make $241,596 per year. He will serve at the will of the Board, and the contract includes a six months severance. Kelley, whose previous contract was for two years, said he was pleased with the new contract.
