More turmoil in Calexico

(Calexico Police Chief suspended)…Pompeyo Tabarez was placed on suspension by interim City Manager Nick Servin.

Servin is sitting as City Manager until Oscar Rodriguez returns later this month. Servin said the suspension was the result of an investigation, but he would not say why the Chief was being investigated. Servin said it was a personnel matter. He did say the investigation was being conducted by an outside source. The City Council called an emergency meeting Thursday night. The meeting was not to discuss the suspension, but to discuss Servin’s job performance. It was a closed session meeting, which means no information on the meeting can be made public. The Council took no action during the meeting.
