CALEXICO – The California Joint Power Insurance Authority (JPIA) issued Calexico Mayor Kim a letter expressing the great concern of their Insurance Authority over the recent firing by the city council of city manager Warne.
The letter mentioned that they were “gravely concerned” and that the council “calls into question the city council’s commitment to stability and its good faith interest in partnering with the Authority.
Calexico’s city insurance by JPIA was pending on the city council showing stability, mainly by hiring Warne as the permanent city manager. After moving Warne from interim to permanent, the council by a 3-2 vote in a special closed session on September 15, fired Warne, effective immediately.
The letter ended informing Mayor Kim that the executive Committee will consider Calexico’s continued participation in the Authority’s protection programs at their next regular meeting on October 28.
