Message From Your General Manager
After more than 25 years of working at the Sun Valley General Improvement District, I have decided it is time for me to retire.
I began my career at the District as a Service Technician and have been fortunate enough to work my way to becoming the General Manager. One of my proudest accomplishments over my tenure has been to clean up the budget, audit, and Tariff rules to protect the customers of Sun Valley to not have to bear the cost of new development.
I am now looking forward to traveling, visiting family, hunting, fishing, camping, and working on my classic cars.
It has been my pleasure to serve the District and work with our amazing team and customers.
On April 18, 2021, the District Board of Trustees approved a multi-year 2.5% water consumption rate increase for 2021, 2022 and 2023. These increases are a direct cost to the District by TMWA, and as such, need to be passed on to District customers. These increases have been adopted and approved by the District Board of Trustees and will go into effect beginning June 1, 2022.
The District encourages water conservation year-round. With a dry winter we all must do our part to help conserve water. The District recommends following Truckee Meadows Water Authority’s schedule to water three times per week.
Odd addresses should water on Wednesday, Friday
Even addresses should water on Tuesday, Thursday

Sun Valley Citizen Advisory Board
Did you know that Sun Valley has its own Citizen Advisory Board (CAB)? CABs are the formation of appointed community members representing specific regions within Washoe County. Sun Valley Citizen Advisory Board (SVCAB) is a 7 member board that meets once a month for the purpose of bringing community members together to discuss topics of current and ongoing concerns/interests within the Sun Valley community. The SVCAB meeting reports are shared with Washoe County District Commissioners and staff for further discussion and potential action.
Please visit www.washoecounty.gov to view the meeting schedule or learn how you can become a member.
For comments or concerns you would like heard by the Sun Valley CAB, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
