(Brawley City Council schedules special meeting)…. The meeting will be held Tuesday at the Special Operations Center in Brawley.
It will begin at 9:00 am. The morning will be taken up with training. In the afternoon, at around 1:00 pm, the Council will discuss the National Beef issue. The County Ad Hoc Committee was scheduled to meet with National Beef Thursday to discuss the announced closure of the Brawley Beef plant. The announcement was that the plant would close April 4, laying off 1,300 employees and severely damaging the local economy. The Brawley Council will receive an update on the Thursday meeting and possibly take action. The Board of Supervisors are expected to receive an update on the meeting with National Beef at their meeting Tuesday morning.
