IMPERIAL — The IVC Board has 60 days from the date of the vacancy to make a provisional appointment; otherwise, a special election would be called by the County at the College’s cost. The Board will conduct interviews and make the provisional appointment at a special meeting on Monday, August 2, 2021, at 6 p.m., according to a press release.
“The Board of Trustees will meet in open session to interview candidates and select an appointee. The provisional appointee would hold office until the next regularly scheduled election for the district governing board, which is November 8, 2022,” said IVC Legal Counsel William Priest. “The Trustee Area 1 seat will then be open to qualified candidates at that election and any person elected would hold the office for the remaining two years of the term.”
Qualified candidates must be registered voters and legal residents of Imperial Community College District, Area 1.
“Only individuals meeting these qualifications are eligible to fill this vacancy,” Priest said.
