INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev.— The Incline Village Board of Trustees worked on communication with the public through creating a new Frequently Asked Questions page and the implementation of board-appointed committees at their meeting on Wednesday, July 12. 

The meeting centered mainly around a list of frequently asked questions brought to the board by Chairman Matthew Dent, to which he requested board feedback on dispelling rumors that have been circulating around the district. There were many rumors brought up by the board that are frequently mentioned during public comment, ranging from the explanation on the elimination of the recreation fee, to the rumored privatization of all IVGID facilities. Over ten questions were discussed by the board, each involving its own discussion on the best way to respond to public interest. 

Trustee Dave Noble was hesitant to get too deep into answering questions that addressed rumors among the district, especially as the questions of definitions began to arise. The board questioned what the true model for the district really is and if it has been changed, and questions of what the word ‘privatize’ truly means.
