HEBER — What's in a name?
Plenty, if it is the name of the planned essential services building in the center of the Heber township.
Saturday, a ground-breaking ceremony was staged for the building that, after six months of construction, will provide police and fire services, a library, banking and a community center for Heber and the county.
During that ceremony a sign was unveiled that read: Heber Public Utility District Services Building.
Logical enough. The building is in Heber and it will provide fire, police and community services for the district.
However, the project is a multi-million dollar partnership between the Heber district and Imperial County.
On design layouts for the building that were displayed for perusal during the ceremony, the name read: Imperial County Essential Services.
That name also makes sense since the building will provide fire and police services from Holtville to Ocotillo and for all of the new homes in El Centro to the north and Calexico to the south.
