INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Incline Village Board of Trustees meeting on Wednesday, April 12, began with a statement from Chairman Matthew Dent regarding the tense atmosphere that has recently surrounded the board meetings.
“We are a board to represent the entire community,” said Dent. “Not special interests, not the dog owners, not the golfers, not the skiers, not the pickle ball players, but the entire community. We all work very hard and listen to the perspectives of all, and yes, we listen to special interest groups, because we must make decisions that will sustain our venues for years to come.”
Many of the examples that Dent brought forward included community members reporting ethics violations of trustees and the general harsh comments that have been brought forward by some of the public commenters both in person and online.
