(IID announces changes)…The Changes are in the Energy Department.
The Imperial Irrigation District took action to realign personnel and reporting relationships in the Energy Department. Effective Monday, Vicken Kasarjian became the energy manager in charge of transmission and planning. He joins Carl Stills, who will head up energy operations. Kasarjian will focus on the transmission, planning and engineering functions, but will also assume management control of system operations, generation and regulatory affairs, among other key responsibilities. IID General Manager Kevin Kelley also says several employees who work in the transmission, planning and engineering sections have been placed on paid administrative leave. Kelley said this was a personnel matter, and he would not elaborate any further.
