General Manager Blake Tresan complimented Wright for his commitment to protecting the public health and environment of the Truckee area and wished him well in his retirement.

Wright, who lives in Sierraville, said he plans on remaining in the Truckee/Tahoe area and looks forward to spending more time with his family and continuing to grow his catering business “When Pigs Fly BBQ.”
