Promote La Jolla board contemplating future

As the deadline nears on Jan. 25 to nominate people to run for the board of the new La Jolla Village Merchants Association, the four remaining members of Promote La Jolla’s board continue to meet.

But they’re doing it out of the public eye, said President Rick Wildman, explaining that they are discussing “what we might do as far as disbanding. …We are no longer considering bankruptcy.”

Last week, Wildman, Deborah Marengo and Jennifer Clark, via phone, met, he said. The other remaining board member, Glen Rasmussen, had other obligations and did not participate.

The nonprofit, which previously held public meetings, continues to operate, even though it no longer has a contract with the city to manage the Village business improvement district. That contract was not renewed after the city auditor found irregularities in its financial procedures. Since then, PLJ, through its insurance company has settled with the city.

“We are waiting for the new BID to take over,” Wildman said Friday. “PLJ is upside down but will continue to meet and see what happens.”
