BRAWLEY — The City Council discussed Tuesday the direction the city will go in finding a replacement for Imperial Valley Enterprise Zone manager Diane Cason, after her recent notice of resignation.
“Sir, do we have the option of rejecting her resignation,” Councilman Ryan Kelly joked to Mayor George Nava during the meeting.
Cason, who had been the IVEZ manager for four years, explained her reasons for leaving.
“I was offered a position at CalEnergy which I was really excited about, so I decided to take it,” Cason said.
Although the city was sad to see Cason leave, measures to replace her were discussed.
“The application process will begin and we will advertise the position. Those applications will be reviewed by the joint powers authority that makes up the board of directors for the IVEZ, then they will set up interviews and then someone will be chosen hopefully by the middle of September,” said Cason.
Brawley hopes to have the position filled by July 19, and until such time the IVEZ maintains adequate coverage by a representative Cason trusts to handle any issues left unresolved after she leaves.
