February Fireside Chat: IVGID – one man’s perspective



Aaron Katz will share his perspective and answer questions with Andy Whyman

(INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev.)  Aaron Katz, the local attorney who has sued the Incline Village General Improvement District and repeatedly criticized the district,  will be the guest at the next Fireside Chat on Thursday, February 2 in Sierra Nevada College’s Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences room 139/141. The chat — hosted by Incline Village resident Andy Whyman — takes place from 7 to 9 p.m.

Katz received his  J.D. degree from Santa Clara University School of Law and was admitted to practice law in California in December of 1973. He and his wife have lived in Incline Village since 2007 when he began his research on the history of the Incline Village General Improvement District. It is not his first public lawsuit.  Katz  has sued a number of public agencies over the past five years, including the Foothill-De Anza Community College District, Mountain View-Whisman School District, El Camino Hospital District, West Valley-Mission Community College District and Campbell Union High School.

Katz alleges the Incline Village General Improvement District has violated state law for years by offering free and discounted services to non-residents and private parties, and it further demands limits be set against the facilities, services and activities the district should be allowed to provide.
