(IID Board approves joint term sheet)…It is the same term sheet approved by the County last week.

The term sheet represents a common vision of Salton Sea restoration in which renewable energy generation would provide a long term funding mechanism and establish an enduring public/private partnership. It is part of the settlement negotiations between the Imperial Irrigation District and Imperial County. A 90-day stay was approved in the Coordinated case filed against the Quantification Settlement Agreement. The County is a lead litigant in the Coordinated Cases. The action taken by the IID Tuesday paves the way for a memorandum of Understanding between the two public agencies that would signal a resolution of their longstanding dispute in the QSA litigation. The MOU will be presented to the recently hired mediator, to be presented to the other litigants in the Coordinated Cases. Sacramento Superior Court Judge Lloyd Connely gave the two agencies until June 3rd to negotiate a settlement.
