Redistricting workshops to start at 7 tonight in Brawley

June 18, 2001|By RUDY YNIGUEZ, Staff Writer

The county Board of Supervisors is scheduled to receive a formal presentation Tuesday on supervisorial redistricting efforts by a county ad hoc committee tasked with developing alternatives.

The board meets in open session at 9:30 a.m. in the County Administration Center, 940 W. Main St., El Centro.

Today begins a series of public workshops where the committee's four alternatives will be presented for public comment. All of the hearings begin at 7 p.m. Tonight's hearing is in Brawley in the City Council chambers, 225 A St.; the next is Tuesday in the supervisors chambers; and the last is Wednesday in Calexico in its City Council chambers, 608 Heber Ave.

In other actions, the board will be asked:

· to sell or donate a 1996, 15-passenger van to the city of Westmorland's Police Activities League. The van was scheduled to be auctioned recently and has an appraised value of $8,000, which when sold typically goes toward the cost of a replacement vehicle.


· to approve $1.49 million in funding with the Imperial Valley Regional Occupational Program to provide certain CalWORKs welfare-to-work services. The amount is $381,173 more than last year's amount.

· for approval by the sheriff to hire a limited term crime prevention coordinator to work with the Sheriff's Activities League in Heber, Ocotillo, Niland and Indian tribes at a cost of $52,000.

· to approve a federally funded $290,000 wetlands inventory with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

· to approve a $67,906 agreement between the Department of Social Services and the Imperial County Office of Education to continue funding a school nurse for pregnant minors.
