The Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors will meet Tuesday.

The Board's regular meeting gets underway at 8:00 a.m. in closed session to discuss existing and pending litigation with legal counsel. The Board reconvenes in open session at 1:00 p.m. Among items on the action agenda is an enabling contract between the IID and Centro Nacional de Control Energia for wholesale electricity. An emergency item was added over the weekend after powerful winds caused problems in the Coachella Valley last Thursday. According to the IID , on May 16th , a storm system producing extremely high winds caused extreme peril to the safety of persons and property in Riverside County. It caused damages to critical infrastructure and other property , including transmission lines , distribution lines and power poles. The dollar amount of damages is still be tallied but the District is expected to adopt an emergency declaration in order to be eligible for reimbursable funding from the California Office of Emergency Services. The Board meets in the Condit Auditorium on Broadway in El Centro.
