County could fund Northend building for $277K

April 15, 2002|By LAURA MITCHELL, Staff Writer

The county Board of Supervisors is scheduled at its meeting Tuesday to transfer $277,265 to fund the Northend Administration Center.

The renovation of the future administration center, in the former Bank of America building on Main Street in Brawley, has been stalled in the county property services department.

Supervisor Gary Wyatt, whose district includes the county's Northend, has pushed for construction on the center to begin after receiving complaints from residents. The supervisors also will hear a report on the county property services department's staffing and salary needs.

The board will discuss and possibly take action on 14 acres it recently acquired at the Gateway of the Americas development. The land has a staging area used for construction of the North Baja Pipeline, a project the county has a lawsuit against, Gateway landowner John Pierre Menville said.


The board also is scheduled to:

· hear reports from staff on environmental lawsuits;

· consider transferring $30,000 to the county library project at the Meyer Memorial Library in Calipatria;

· apply for a $41,000 arts grant from the state;

· transfer $51,000 to the county counsel capital improvement fund.

The Board of Supervisors meets at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday at the board chambers on the second floor of the County Administration Center, 940 W. Main St., El Centro. Meeting agendas are available online at:
