HOLTVILLE — There will be a joint meeting of the Holtville City Council and the Holtville Unified School District at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The meeting will be in the Finley Elementary School auditorium at 627 E. 6th St. The two groups will come together to discuss common problems relating to the city and the school district and explore working together. Parents, teachers and local residents are encouraged to attend.
"The meeting came about because our council members determined we are having resource problems and so is the school district. Everybody's bills keep going up and up," said City Manager John Jordan. "Our revenues are not keeping pace with our expenditures. The city needs to have a new public safety building because the ones that we currently have are not adequate. The school district is basically in the same situation. Its buildings are old and need to be replaced."
There are grants available that require cooperation between the city and the school district.
