CALEXICO, Calif. – The city manager, the police chief and the finance director’s contracts have not been signed yet by city council and some are wondering what the hold up is.
Virginia Sanchez thankful of the recent positive changes in Calexico.
“I think that they should sign. We are so happy. There are many people happy having this police chief because we know that he’s doing a great job. We know that he has experience that we need him in Calexico,” Virginia Sanchez said.
City council has been discussing the contracts for City Manger Richard Warne… Police Chief Mike Bostic and Finance Director John Quinn but still no decision.
“We started negotiating last week. We’ve just had a difficult time this week trying to find a common time so we can discuss this, but it will get done,” Mayor John Moreno said.
“With the new councilman Mandy Real, I think he’s the swing vote. I think he’s going to make a difference. So, I think they’re going to get down to business,” Police Commission member James Beaver said.
Business that is put on hold on until the crucial decision will be made.
Since the city manager and police chief have come on board the police department has undergone a clean up with three termination notices given to three officers.
The longer the decision is prolonged some think there’s a chance warne… bostic and quinn may leave.
That leaves Calexico back to where it started with many problems.
“If we want to have changes here in Calexico, we need to have these people here out of town that they don’t know the same people,” Sanchez said.
