(Calexico insurance will not be canceled)…The announcement was made this week.
The Joint Powers Insurance Authority had announced in May their board had voted to cancel the liability and workers compensation insurance provided the city of Calexico. The reasoning was the instability in the City Government. The JPIA said if the City Council could create a stable administration by July 1, they would reconsider the Board action. Last week the City Council agreed to a contract with Richard Warne to be come the permanent City Manager for Calexico. Apparently that was enough. The JPIA this week rescinded the deadline and said the insurance would not be canceled.
