The city of Calexico has issued several layoff notices to firefighters due to a shortage of funds in what they call a significant budget crisis.
It was a grueling application process, according to Brawley Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District officials. They said it took them over a year to submit the required documentation to start the Healthcare District certification process.
An incident over the weekend led to an arrest after reports of shots fired in El Centro.
At a packed out, overflowing Brawley council meeting on Tuesday, One World Beef officials asked permission to dump their waste water into the city's system on a temporary basis while they finish building their own filtering systems.
