CALEXICO — The city of Calexico has scheduled a public forum on Monday to discuss the status of the fire-damaged Santo Tomas Swap Meet and address vendors’ questions and concerns.

Having already attended multiple City Council meetings to express their concerns, vendors are hesitant to attend another meeting that may not present a favorable and timely resolution to their most pressing concern.
