Airport Manager to Investigate Expansion Feasibility

The governing board of Truckee-Tahoe Airport District has authorized district manager, Gordon C. Reddall, to make a survey of the Crystal Bay and Incline Village communities of Washoe County, Nev., to determine the feasibility of annexing that fast-developing area to the district.

The airport near Truckee currently serves that area and, with the approval of the affected resident and business interests, the annexation would provide for faster development of the airport with the inclusion of a tower and other needed facilities and thus induce additional use of the airport.

Teachers, administration at odds

After four uneventful meetings with a state mediator, the local school board and teachers are calling in a fact finding panel to try and settle a current contract dispute.

The Tahoe-Truckee Unified School Board and Tahoe-Truckee Education Association had been meeting for the last three months with state mediator Peter Lujan, however, discontinued the meetings after no progress was made. Instead, a three-member fact finding panel is being called in, which is the last lawful step in settling a labor dispute, according to Assistant Superintendent Terre Krause.
