(IID Schedules Public Hearings)..They are to gain input on Wildfire Mitigation Plan.

The Imperial Irrigation District has scheduled two public hearings this month. The hearings are to create a plan to mitigate wildfire dangers in the utility’s service area. They will seek comments from public agencies and from the public in general to finalize a plan that addresses wildfire risks related to electrical infrastructure. The plan would help establish programs and procedures to reduce risk, prepare for wildfire events and establish program oversight. Both public hearings will start at 4:30 in the afternoon. The first will be held Tuesday September 17th in Condit Auditorium on Broadway in El Centro. The second one will be held Thursday, September 19, in the IID Boardroom in La Quinta. Go to the IID website to view a draft of the plan and to make comments online.
