CALEXICO — Assemblyman David Kelley, R-Hemet, the Imperial Valley's state Assembly representative, has informed this city's Parks and Recreation Commission that there will be no money in the 2001 state budget to complete Nosotros Park.
Three years ago, when he was a state senator for this area, Kelley secured more than $750,000 to begin construction on the park near the Casas del Sol housing projects.
Calexico's Parks and Recreation Commission found out about the status of its 2001 request when agencies and commissions throughout the state heard of the latest round of state budget cuts coming from Sacramento.
Jack Anderson, city parks and recreation commissioner, said the recent budget cut could affect other city services besides parks. However, he said the under-construction Nosotros Park is his first priority.
