INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Incline Village General Improvement District will hold its first budget workshop of the year on Thursday, April 2, from 2-4 p.m. at the Chateau at 955 Fairway Blvd.

According to the district, staff is recommending the combined Recreation Facility and Beach fees to remain flat at $830 for the 2015-16 fiscal year. It would mark the sixth consecutive year the fees remain flat.

To accomplish this, staff will discuss how to schedule future capital projects to avoid fee fluctuations.

A district-wide presentation for the fiscal 2015-16 budget compared to 2014-15 will be available at the April 2 meeting, according to a district news release.

The district will host another budget workshop on April 9 from 1-4 p.m. at The Chateau. Both meetings, and others to be scheduled, will include time for public comment.

If residents want to be notified of upcoming board meetings, send an email to sah@ivgid.org with “Notice” in the subject line.


At the board’s March 25 regular meeting, trustees voted 4-1 to accept a Strategic Plan and Organizational Chart from CoralBridge Partners, prepared as part of planning sessions the Chicago-based firm conducted with trustees and select staff in February and March. Trustee Bill Devine voted against.

The plan includes the following draft vision statement: “IVGID will help make Incline Village/Crystal Bay the premier destination in the United States for residents, and visitors seeking exceptional recreational opportunities. As a result, they will develop a reputation as the “best” place to live, work and play.”

According to IVIGD, General Manager Steve Pinkerton will now work on integrating the plan into the budget process, and recommendations will be brought before the board for approval.

The board also voted 5-0 to OK a $57,000 contract with Marcus Faust, who has provided services for the district for more than 11 years by lobbying for federal dollars for IVIGD projects in Washington, D.C.

The deal runs from April 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016.
