(Calexico funding does not make the cut)…That is a good thing.
State Senator Ben Hueso had included $2.5 million in the State Spending plan. The funds are to help pay for the construction of a new swimming pool in Calexico. The fear was that the Governor would cut the allocation out of the budget before he signed the balanced document. Hueso has confirmed the funds have remained in the budget. Calexico is constructing a new Swimming pool/ recreation area to replace the old public pool that was seriously damaged in the 2010 earthquake. The City and the School District joined together in the project.
