MODESTO — Modesto Irrigation District leaders have called a special board meeting Friday to discuss a successor to former general manager Allen Short, who retired Monday.
Board members say they intend to name a temporary replacement from among district staff and will wait about a year to hire a permanent general manager.
That's because elections could replace up to three of the five board members.
Recruitment is the only item Friday, although people can speak during a section reserved for "public input for the good of the district."
The meeting begins at 9 a.m. at the district office, 1231 11th St., Modesto.
