Town Hall meeting

(Calexico Town Hall meeting)…It was held Tuesday evening.

The Parrish Hall in Calexico was full of residents with questions. Interim City Manager Richard Warne and Interim Police Chief Michael Bostic gave updates to those attending the meeting. Questions dealt with the Joint Power Insurance Authority decision. That decision is to cancel Liability and Workers Compensation Insurance on July 1, if the City did not stabilize the upper administration. The JPIA praised the efforts of the interim City Manager and interim police chief, but they emphasized they would not tell the City Council who to hire. Residents wanted to know what would happen if the insurance was canceled. They were told it could be catastrophic for the city.
