(LAFCO decides on the PMHD application)....Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District had submitted an application for expansion.

The LAFCO Commission took up The issue at their meeting last week. Before the Commission meeting, the newly Formed Imperial Valley Healthcare District submitted a letter to LAFCO, opposing the application. The IVHD was created by Assembly Bill 918. The legislation was passed to create a single Healthcare District in Imperial County. The letter said The PMHD application ran contrary to AB 918. They said the Assembly Bill called for the dissolution of PMHD, and to approve the application would be a waste of much needed funds. The LAFCO Commission agreed with the Imperial Valley Healthcare District. The new Healthcare District says what needs to be done is to workout a dissolution plan  that would not interrupt the healthcare needs of the residents of Imperial County.
