CALEXICO — Protestors Friday evening gathered at the intersection of Highways 111 and 98 to express their dismay with two recent actions by the Calexico City Council.

During its meeting Wednesday, the council disbanded the city’s Ad Hoc COVID-19 committee and voted to use some available funds to purchase a police car rather than fix public restrooms.
