CALIPATRIA — The City Council here will consider Tuesday either buying or leasing an Imperial Irrigation District building on Main Street.
The city is looking for a building to house the Police Department since the existing station house will be leased to the Imperial Valley ROP Steps of Success program.
SOS is a community-resource program that has been operating in Calipatria for about seven months.
During the City Council meeting on Tuesday, officials will vote on authorizing City Manager Romualdo Medina to negotiate with IID officials regarding the empty building. The only restrictions the city has is that the purchase price not exceed $100,000 or a monthly lease payment not exceed $750 a month.
Also Tuesday, the council will decide on a firm to implement a housing rehabilitation grant. The recently acquired grant is for $500,000. More information on the grant was not available at presstime.
