Strategic vision, D.C. lobbyist contract on next IVGID agenda

Staff report

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Incline Village General Improvement District will hold its monthly board meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, at The Chateau at 955 Fairway Blvd.

There, trustees will be asked to renew IVGID's contract with federal lobbyist Marcus Faust, who has provided services for the district for more than 11 years.

According to an IVGID statement, Faust has worked to provide federal funding for major projects, including $15.5 million for the Effluent Export Project.

Trustees will also hear an update from CoralBridge Partners regarding the district's strategic planning sessions on Feb. 17 and March 5-6.

CoralBridge is expected to discuss the district's new vision, an assessment of its venues and thoughts on finances needed to roll out the strategic plan, among other updates.

"The strategic plan presented by our partners at CoralBridge integrates the goals and objectives of the board with those expressed by our community's citizens throughout the past several years," Board Vice-Chairman Tim Callicrate said in a statement. "This document gives clear, decisive direction from the board to our district through a workable blueprint helping to enact the reorganizational needs, capital improvements and much-needed culture change long overdue at IVGID."
