Months keep going by and the Imperial Irrigation District continues to spend more money and ignore cutting costs.
What happened to the savings we expected from the efficiency study? What have we gotten for the three quarters of a million dollars spent performing the study? Nothing! Just words! And more spending! The IID way — ignore and hope the customers forget.
Again, let me repeat what I said a few months ago. How can you implement with the very people who rejected savings in the first place? It is not normal to take incentives away from themselves.
Yet, this is what we are expected to accept. Are we really that stupid? Instead of reducing costs, IID has increased spending by spinning their wheels in more fruitless meetings, meetings that have apparently caused so much frustration that another team builder has been brought in to resolve the conflicts. This despite the fact that the district spent over $365,000 a few years ago on another team builder, Kathy Loveless.
