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 ntpud.org and surveymonkey.com/r/ntpudelection, with results to go before the board of directors at its Oct. 13 meeting.
Additional comments should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or PO Box 139, Tahoe Vista, CA 96148.
