Tahoe City PUC to have first woman to serve on board

TAHOE CITY – After more than 63 years of service and countless decisions, the Tahoe City Public Utility District will have its first woman serving on the board of directors.

Kelly Atchley was elected as a board member in November, was sworn in and attended her first board meeting this month.

“I knew that in the duration of my involvement (with the community) there had not bee a woman,” said Atchley. “But I did not know that in 63 years there had not been a woman.”

Atchley has lived in the area for close to 20 years. She is an active mother of two high school students. She said she is ready for the challenges of being a board member.

Although Atchley is ready to handle her job of representing the community, what thrills her the most about having her position on the board is the fact that she can give her children someone to look up to.

“I am actually quite proud that I can be a role model for her,” she said.

Atchley will serve on the parks and recreation, safety and personnel committees.
