IVGID Trustee Phil Horan moving out of area, resigns
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Incline Incline Village General Improvement District Trustee Phil Horan tendered his resignation Wednesday night because he is moving away from Lake Tahoe.
Horan listed his house for a sale over a year ago and it was recently sold. He will be moving out of Incline Village and will no longer be allowed to serve as trustee.
One man in the crowd cheered loudly at his announcement while Sara Schmitz, an Incline community member who frequently attends meetings, thanked Horan for his service.
“My wife and are in the process of selling our home and relocating out of the Incline Village community. Because our primary residence will no longer be within the boundaries that allow me to hold my elected position, sadly, I must resign my seat,” Horan said at the meeting. “I would like to thank my fellow Trustees for their selfless commitment and the IVGID staff for their steadfast dedication and hard work to the district. Most of all, I thank the voters of Incline Village and Crystal Bay that have put their confidence in me to lead this wonderful community for the past several years. They are what this job is all about.”
Horan’s last day will be Dec. 16, contingent on closing escrow. The board has 30 days after Dec. 16 to appoint a replacement.
Horan was appointed to the board in 2015 and the community re-elected him to stay on the board in 2016. He had one more year left in his term.
Horan and his wife, Jan, have owned property in Incline Village since 1990 and have been full-time residents since 2001.
