CALEXICO - The Calexico Unified School District board will meet again Thursday in hopes of filling a board vacancy and avoiding a costly election. Imperial County Office of Education Superintendent Anne Mallory said it's estimated that a special election would cost the district between $37,000 and $50,000. “I hope they're able to come to some consensus and choose a board member,” she said. “I think those dollars could be spent in a much better way for the children and district than on a special election.” The board voted to provisionally appoint someone to fill former board trustee Joong Kim's vacancy, and if a decision is not made Thursday, ICOE will have to order a special election.

CALEXICO - City Council voted to approve an $87,836 bid to install air-conditioning units in city facilities during a special meeting Tuesday night. The cost to the city for the air-conditioning/heater package units from Arctic Air will total $78,901 after a rebate from the Imperial Irrigation District. The public works department put out the request for proposals to replace the 14 units and received three responses. Staff determined that Arctic Air's bid met all the required guidelines under bid specifications and with an IID rebate, is less than the second-lowest bid. One of the other companies bidding argued that it's improper to award Arctic Air with the contract since its owner, Cesar Rodriguez, is a sitting planning commissioner.
