New IID Board to be seated December 7th


EL CENTRO – As expected, a special meeting has been added to the IID calendar.Tuesday afternoon the Imperial Irrigation District Board agreed to add December 7th to the schedule of meetings.


On that date, the District will seat the two newly elected Board members. Bruce Kuhn was elected to the Division 2 seat and Steve Benson was elected to the Division 4 seat.


At the request of Chief Financial Officer Greg Broeking, the meetings set for December 3rd and the 10th for El Centro will remain on the schedule.


A videoconference, however, will include the La Quinta area to allow that area to participate in budget workshops.


A draft budget is being tweaked during workshops, ahead of a possible adoption before the New Year. Possibly, a budget will be decided at the December 18th meeting.


The IID operates on a calendar year, and should have a new budget in place at the first of the year.
