EL CENTRO â€“ In their closed session Tuesday, May 28, 2013, the IID Board of Directors voted to extend General Manager Kevin Kelleyâ€™s employment for 2 years.
â€œThe IID Board approved a 2 year extension to the employment of IIDâ€™s General Manager Kevin Kelley,â€ said IID General Counsel Ross Simmons. â€œThe vote in favor of this action was 5 to 0. Terms of employment are contained in a written agreement which is not yet in final form, but will be publically distributed when finalized.”
Kelleyâ€™s original contract for 2 years began May 17, 2011.
â€œI think this is an acknowledgement by the Board that the issues we are dealing with today are going to extend into the future,â€ said Kelley. â€œIt will take at least 2 years to bring them to some sort of resolution. It would be tough to get any traction within the organization for any length of time less than that. Iâ€™m glad they did it.â€
