DISTRICT GENERAL MANAGER DARRIN PRICE RETIRES AFTER 31 YEARS OF SERVICE
Darrin Price, Sun Valley General Improvement District General Manager, has retired from the District after 31 years on the job. Darrin was hired as an entry level Service Technician in 1987, promoted to Field Supervisor in 1993 and in 2000 became the District’s Public Works Director. His outstanding supervisory skills, experience and knowledge prompted District Trustees to name him as General Manager in 2008.
Darrin enjoyed and should be proud of his many accomplishments during his time at the District benefitting District customers and the Sun Valley community. He holds several water related certifications including the highest level, Water Distribution Operator, Grade IV. He represented the District on various boards: Northern Nevada Water Planning Commission, Nevada Recreation and Parks Society, the Joint Coordinating Committee for Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility, Standing Advisory Committee for Truckee Meadows Water Authority and CA-NV American Water Works Association. Darrin also successfully negotiated Sun Valley recreational powers from Washoe County in 2009. His hard work was also instrumental as the first governmental agency to refinance State Revolving Loans saving District customers over $300,000 over the course of the loans. He obtained various grants for the Sun Valley Community that included sidewalks, providing a safer route for children walking to school, replacement of the Gepford Park Community Building and multiple ADA grants for the District Building and Neighborhood Center.
The District is so grateful for Darrin’s hard work and dedication on behalf of the entire Sun Valley Community. He raised the bar with his management of the District and exemplary accomplishments. Darrin has a son and three daughters. He and his wife, Jody, are looking forward to the future and what it holds. Congratulations from all of the Staff and Trustees of the General Improvement District. He will be missed.
