CaLEXICO — The City Council here will rule on the fate of the Calexico Housing Authority's board of commissioners … again.
Late last year and last summer, the council voted to allow the authority's board of commissioners to remain in place while its activities were monitored closely instead of replacing the board with itself.
At the recent meetings that have been monitored by councilmen, the chairman of the board, Jesus "Chuy" Solano resigned, the interim executive director, Christina Rojas, resigned and her replacement, Humberto Celaya, was replaced after one week on the job because the board thought Celaya, a housing resident, had a conflict of interest.
Meanwhile, the board voted to re-advertise for a permanent executive director after it was unable to come to terms with any of six candidates. In addition, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recently gave the authority a list of 29 problems that needed to be corrected — by today.
