It’s been a tumultuous year for the Imperial Irrigation District.

On the energy side, IID canceled tens of millions of dollars in contracts following allegations of financial conflicts of interest against the consultant ZGlobal Inc. On the water side, the publicly owned utility was jolted by a court ruling that could make it more difficult to limit the use of Colorado River water by Imperial Valley farmers.

Voters will have a chance to judge IID’s response to those developments on June 5, when three of the five seats on the agency’s elected board of directors are up for grabs.

But even though the Coachella Valley is home to more than 60 percent of IID’s energy customers, only Imperial County residents will be allowed to vote.
