Kingsbury general manager retires

After 32 years in Tahoe, former Kingsbury General Improvement District General Manager Candi Rohr is retiring and leaving the area to seek greener pastures in Washington.

She leaves the water and sewer purveyor in the hands of engineer Jack Jacobs.

“I have loved being in the Tahoe community,” she said Thursday. She’s downsizing and moving to Whitby Island, Wash.

Rohr’s working commitments in Tahoe date back to her five years of administrative duties with Dillingham Construction, the developer the Tahoe Keys.

But it was her management of the $6 million operation’s 10 employees providing water, sewer, road maintenance, drainage and snow removal to 2,400 customers that left her with the most proud list of accomplishments.

She was especially proud of a $20 million upgrade plan expected to be completed in 2009, which included a water pump system. KGID also took $10 million in grant funds to conduct Environmental Improvement Program projects related to lake clarity.
