Imperial Irrigation District directors Stella Mendoza, Bruce Kuhn and Andy Horne voted against moving the power poles out of the way of the Coachella Boys Club. Two reasons I remember were. 1. "We don't want to start a precedent and do this for every Tom, Dick and Harry."
The Boys Club has prevented thousands of dollars of household goods from being taken from our homes. The moving of the power poles would have been a very good cause.
2. These three board members also claimed the cost (approximately $150,000) was too high. Yet it has been discovered in the efficiency report that many department heads are doing blunders big time, wasting a lot of rate- and water-payers' funds.
If you are lucky and can get hold of any director, you can amuse yourself with the endless excuses they will make to protect the blundering managers.
