IVGID Board Meeting Highlights - August 27, 2018

The Board voted unanimously to approve an additional $70,000 of public money to pursue continued legal action by independent Counsel Beko to recover the District's costs in responding to the Katz lawsuit and appeals.  The District, according to the Board packet, has spent nearly $400,000 contesting Mr. Katz' legal actions.  The Board, along with a large group of citizens attending the Board meeting, expressed support for Attorney Beko's continued efforts to seek the recovery of "every penny of the District's legal fees".

Mr. Pinkerton received his annual performance review receiving a "meets expectation" rating.

The Board approved an easement for Nevada energy to move electrical lines overhead in an effort to avoid future problems.  The intention of the easement is to facilitate replacement of the aging and failing power conduit across Third Creek between Jennifer St. and Apollo Way near Mercury Ct. The easement will allow for overhead wires where required to avoid sensitive lands and the avalanche zone.

The Board approved the identification and selection process for retaining a Legislative Advocate (lobbyist) for the 2019 Nevada Legislation Session.

The Board approved the identification and selection process for the engagement of new Legal Counsel to begin on January 1, 2019.  The Request for Proposal (RFP) will be directed by the General Manager with the final candidate for Board consideration determined by the General Manger and Trustee Horan.  Current Legal Counsel will also be submitting their proposal for consideration.
