IVGID board may vote Friday on creating two administrative positions

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The IVGID board will hold a special meeting Friday to discuss the creation of two administrative positions.

According to an agenda released Tuesday morning, the positions are for an assistant general manager, who would report to current GM Steve Pinkerton, and an administrative assistant, who would report directly to the board.

Incline Village General Improvement District Board of Trustees Chairman Jim Smith recommended both items for discussion. The agenda lists no salaries or other details for the positions.

“We’re looking at a reorganization that’s in the best interest of community, and looking to put successor plans in place for management,” Smith said Wednesday. “In our current structure, the board clerk also reports to the general manager, and currently, the board clerk is stretched pretty thin. In the end, by reorganizing, we will end up saving money and providing better service and value to the district.”

According to the agenda, the board may vote on the positions at the meeting which begins at 8:30 a.m. Friday at the board room at 893 Southwood Blvd.

The board may also vote on items related to the Incline and Third creeks restoration projects.

As is the case with all board meetings, public comment will be taken on the general business items, as well as before and after those discussions take place.


The board’s next gathering will be in the form of a “special strategic planning retreat,” scheduled for 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 17, at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe’s lakeside room.

Charlie Bishop and Jeff Husserl of the Chicago-based firm CoralBridge Partners will facilitate the retreat, which aims to help create a strategic vision for the district, Smith said.

“It’s been many years since we’ve had a strategic plan for the district,” he said Wednesday. “We think this is a needed improvement. We have a new legal counsel, a new GM, a brand new board, so it will be healthy for us to all get in there and help. Right now, we have nothing to build on because the other plan is so old. We’re starting from scratch.”

The contract with CoralBridge Partners will cost the district $15,000, not including travel expenses, Smith said.

The contract includes prep work, two separate, all-day facilitation sessions, and creation of a final report that will be shared with the community, Smith said.

Tuesday’s session will last from 2 to 10 p.m., and the second will be scheduled for some time in March.

Smith said he and the other trustees spoke earlier this week with the firm to get some prep work done, and he “was very impressed with our start so far.”

Tuesday’s meeting is open to the public.
