The final phase of the Imperial Irrigation District's efficiency study was not released Friday and will not be released until Wednesday, too late for Tuesday's meeting of the IID Board of Directors.
Carl Stills, IID general superintendent for project management, said the study's third phase — in which detailed recommendations on where the district can save money and improve its services — will go to printing today.
He said the study should be ready Wednesday and go to the IID board sometime after that.
The board meets in open session at 5 p.m. Tuesday at 1285 Broadway, El Centro.
Stills said that at Tuesday's board meeting he will request the board schedule a series of three public workshops to discuss the study. It would be during the workshops that the study's final results would be released to the public, Stills said.
The study's second phase roughly identified $21 million in annual savings through more fully implementing the district's new computer system, better management of its vehicle fleet and the timely completion of customers' power construction projects. Other areas where inefficiencies lie include customer services and billing and water-order entry, which could end up with a separate computer system.
