May 13, 2002|By RUDY YNIGUEZ, Staff Writer

The Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors will be presented the final report from the community advisory commission on its evaluation of the impacts of the water transfer.

The IID board meets in open session at 5 p.m. at the William R. Condit Auditorium, 1285 Broadway, El Centro.

In other business, the board will:

· consider approval of a $1.95 million contract amendment on work to the district's power generation, transmission and distribution system.

· be presented with a study of the water department's cost of services. Fees charged by the water department are expected to change to reflect the study's results.

· consider approval of $42,500 for an air cargo market and economic assessment in conjunction with the Imperial Valley Economic Development Corp. The money would be half the assessment's cost.


· consider the establishment of a mileage reimbursement program for board members. The program would pay either $400 monthly or set a maximum of 1,000 miles monthly to be reimbursed at 36.5 cents per mile.

· consider spending $180,000 to buy 10 half-ton pickups to be used at the La Quinta headquarters and meet the air emission guidelines of the South Coast Air Quality Management District.

· consider spending $60,000 on three compressed natural gas sedans. The price includes certain discounts.

· consider adopting a formal budget amendment procedure.

· consider approval of $3,500 in dues to the California Association of Resource Conservation Districts organization and $2,611 to the Water Education Foundation.
