WESTMORLAND — The City Council here will be the next to hear El Centro Mayor Pro Tem Larry Grogan's request to join a countywide task force that would look into imposing a quarter-cent tax throughout the Imperial Valley.
The Westmorland council will hear the proposal at its meeting Wednesday.
Grogan had already made a similar pitch to the Calexico City Council and the county Board of Supervisors.
Grogan said the revenue taken in by the tax could be used by local cities to buy new police and fire vehicles.
Also during the meeting:
· the council will stage a public meeting to hear suggestions and comments on several proposed zoning changes.
George Galvan of The Holt Group said, "The city's map has some questionable zones, so we are trying to update them so everything in the city is compatible with each other."
The Holt Group is an El Centro firm that provides engineering, planning and other services to the city.
