INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The newly elected officials on the IVGID and Incline fire boards participated in their first meetings of 2015 this month.

On Wednesday, North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District director Dennis Perry officially joined incumbent Jeff Warner as new members this year.

The board held its monthly meeting at the fire station at 866 Oriole Way. There, directors voted to appoint Paul Zahler as 2015 board chairman, Warner as vice chair and Susan Herron as secretary/treasurer.

In the 2014 General Election, Perry received the most votes for two open seats, followed by Warner.

The third candidate was Herron, who had already been appointed last summer to fill Wayne Fischer’s vacated seat, meaning she’ll be up for reelection in 2016.

The fire board meets the third Wednesday of every month, typically at noon, meaning the next meeting is Feb. 18.

On Jan. 14, the Incline Village General Improvement District Board of Trustees met for its first regular meeting of 2015.

There, Jim Smith was appointed as chairman, with Tim Callicrate getting the nod for vice chair. The 2015 board secretary will be Jim Hammerel, and Kendra Wong was appointed as treasurer

Wong and Callicrate earned the most votes out of four candidates in the General Election. They replaced outgoing one-term trustees Joe Wolfe and Bruce Simonian.

The IVGID board typically meets the second and last Wednesday of each month, alternating between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. start times at either 893 Southwood Blvd. or The Chateau.

The next meeting is Wednesday, Jan. 28.
