A petition requesting the state Department of Food and Agriculture include Imperial County in the state's milk pooling plan will be submitted to the county Board of Supervisors for its approval on Tuesday.
The pooling plan allows dairies to receive a transportation allowance to move their product.
The supervisors meet in open session at 9:30 a.m. in the County Administration Center, 940 W. Main St., El Centro.
The county considers its omission from the plan as a competitive disadvantage for the local economy and dairy development efforts, according to the county staff report.
In other business, the board:
l will consider approval of a $150,000 study of the county airport, including the potential relocation and associated costs, and a study of the rates being charged to private companies that use the facility in Imperial. Most of the money would come from a federal grant. The county would supply $25,560.
l will consider contributing $45,000 from library funds to expand the Calipatria library.
