North Tahoe PUD election method survey closes Sept. 15

KINGS BEACH, Calif. — Time is winding down for residents to provide input to the North Tahoe Public Utility District on a potential change to how board members are elected.

A survey to collect feedback on whether the district should alter its election method of board members to an at-large model will close Tuesday, Sept. 15.

Since the NTPUD’s formation in 1948, board candidates have run for a seat number (1 through 5), with the top vote-getter for each seat winning. The district’s five seats don’t represent geographical areas.

The district is considering a voting-at-large method, in which candidates would run for all available board seats, with the top vote-getters winning.

According to the NTPUD, there is no additional cost in holding at-large elections.

The survey is available at and, with results to go before the board of directors at its Oct. 13 meeting.

Additional comments should be sent to or PO Box 139, Tahoe Vista, CA 96148.
