Incumbents elected to Kingsbury General Improvement board
Three incumbents were re-elected to positions on the Kingsbury General Improvement District’s Board of Trustees last week.
Bob Cook, Jim Beattie and Carolyn Treanor will serve on the board for the next four years. The two other positions on the board, which were not up for election, are occupied by Larry Schussel and Billy Hayes. Those seats will open up in two years.
Also last week, three of the five Tahoe Township residents who serve on the Tahoe-Douglas Fire Protection District’s Board of Trustees were reaffirmed to their positions. Patrick Atherton, of Skyland, Bob Cook, of Kingsbury, and Mike Francoeur, of Round Hill, will serve on the board for the next four years.
Their names were not posted on any ballot in Douglas County because each resident was the incumbent and no candidates came forward to challenge them. The decision to stay off the ballot saved the county a lot of money, Cook said.
Roy Clason, of Skyland, and Frank Forvilly, of Lakeridge, are the two other trustees who serve on board. Their seats will be up for election in two years.
The Tahoe-Douglas Fire Protection District’s Board of Trustees conducts a public meeting in the Tahoe-Douglas fire station at Round Hill on the fourth Monday of every month at 4:30 p.m.
“The board of trustees is primarily responsible for all the financial revenue and expenditures of the district,” Atherton said. “We make decisions on anything regarding equipment purchases.”
