CALEXICO, Calif. – The Joint Powers Insurance Authority putting the city of Calexico on alert once again.
The JPIA sent the city council a letter sharing their concerns about recent negative events that happened over the past two weeks.
Those recent events include talk of removing City Manager Richard Warne.
The other concern is the heated discussion that took place between two council members after the State of the City address.
Last Tuesday Joong Kim wanted to add an agenda item for the next meeting to discuss getting rid of Warne.
The JPIA says since warne has been hired he has made progress in helping the city remain in good standing with the JPIA.
He has also hired chief mike bostic who has also made some positive operational changes in the police department.
“Mr. Kim put on the agenda to remove, dismiss, discipline whatever the city manager, I removed that from the agenda because of this letter. We’re not going to go that route. Our insurance in this city is much more important than anything else and if we lose it, this city spirals way down,” John Moreno said.
Calexico may lose their insurance if they don’t straighten up and if they do they will end up being managed by the nearest city.
