CALEXICO — Adding traffic lights and turn lanes to the intersection of Highway 98 and Meadows Road will cost about $1.2 million, according to this city's Public Works Department, but how much of that will be paid with Redevelopment Agency funds has yet to be decided.
The decision was carried over from last week's RDA board meeting because city councilmen Javier Alatorre and Gilbert Grijalva objected to paying for the traffic signals and improvements with only RDA money.
In a compromise, the council, seated as the RDA board, decided to bring the matter back Tuesday so City Manager Richard Inman could "find" money in other city accounts to lessen the hit to the RDA.
At Tuesday's City Council meeting, the council will look over Inman's numbers and decide how it wants to pay for the traffic signals and turn lanes. It also will hear staffing requests from city department heads.
