INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – The Incline Village/Crystal Bay Community Forum recently held its bi-monthly meeting, which brought together residents and community leaders to discuss pressing issues and hear from candidates for Washoe County Commission, Incline Village General Improvement District (IVGID) Board of Trustees, and Washoe County School District Board.

North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District Chief Ryan Sommers started the meeting with updates on wildfire awareness, defensible space evaluations, and filing complaints with the Nevada State Insurance Commissioner regarding homeowner’s insurance issues.

“We absolutely know there’s an issue (with wildfire insurance),” Sommers said. “It is statewide. California is going through it. Nevada is now definitely going through it. I’ve been in contact with our delegates in Washington D.C., a local lobbyist, and a national lobbyist. We are definitely doing our due diligence. We’ve also met with the Nevada State Insurance Commissioner.
