(IID to declare an emergency)…The County and the City of Calexico have already approved similar declarations.
The resolutions are for damages suffered in the recent storms. Sources say the Imperial Irrigation District suffered between $4-$5 million in Calexico alone. The emergency resolutions will be sent to the Governors office. If the Governor Declares a state emergency because of the storm damage, that would free up Emergency funds to help pay for some of the damages. The IID will also discuss an emergency resolution for Riverside County, as well. The Directors will also be asked to approve the Long Term program for the El Centro Generation Station Unit #3 maintenance by Siemens. The Board convenes their public meeting at 1:00 Tuesday afternoon, in Condit Auditorium on Broadway in El Centro.
