Calexico, California - (Calexico does not have a permanent Police Chief)…Not yet, anyway. Gonzalo Gerardo will serve as interim Police Chief for at least another week.
The City Council was to discuss filling the position at their meeting Tuesday evening. Instead, the large crowd was greeted with a statement from the City Attorney’s office, that the topic would not be discussed at that meeting. The Council did settle another controversy. They insisted on voting on a proposal to scuttle the Cities Police Commission. That proposal was over-turned on a 4-0 vote, with Councilman Luis Castro abstaining. That means the Police Commission will remain in place.
