The Imperial Irrigation District directors debated the idea of setting a spending policy that would govern themselves but took no action on the matter Tuesday.
Board President Andy Horne presented the idea of setting such a policy, stating the district has no such policy for the board while there is a policy for district employees.
Director Stella Mendoza spoke in support of creating a spending policy for directors.
Mendoza, the newest board member, asked if there is a limit to how much one director could spend. Horne answered there is no limit.
Mendoza responded, "I think each director should get a set budget. I think we should be accountable."
Director Bruce Kuhn, who said he does not see a need for such a policy, added, "We are accountable by our actions. I don't see where anything is broken right now."
