CALEXICO, Calif. – Problems getting deeper for calexico as California Joint Powers Insurance authority plans to cancel the city’s insurance if they don’t stabilize soon.
Council members and the JPIA held a special teleconference meeting yesterday to discuss what JPIA expects in order to continue coverage for the city.
“They voted unanimously to intent to cancel our insurance but depending on how things go within the next 10 days, they can rescind that motion,” Mayor John Moreno said.
Moreno says this is all pending on hiring Richard Warne as the permanent city manager.
JPIA highly recommended they do this or else they may pull out.
