(IID Board approves contract for state lobbyist)…The contract for the federal lobbyist must wait, however.
Tuesday the Imperial Irrigation District Board was presented two contracts. One was a three-year contract for the Ferguson Group. The $504,000 contract would contract the Ferguson Group to serve as the District’s Lobbyist in Washington D.C. That contract will have to wait. Director Norma Galindo said she wanted to see more documentation indicating the contract procedure was done correctly, specifically the bidding process. The Board postponed action on that contract until the next meeting. There was no problem in approving the three-year contract for the Gualco Group. The will be paid $630,000 to serve as the District’s lobbyist in Sacramento.
