FROM: Village League to Save Incline Assets
Dear Incline Village & Crystal Bay resident,
Our long fight to return $102 million dollars in illegally collected excess property taxes is ending with our victory securing an additional $300 million dollars of ongoing property tax relief for all residents. You have received your refund checks (with interest) and can now enjoy a reduction in property taxes for the foreseeable future.
Still, the Village League’s work can’t end there. Protecting that win for our community will require ongoing efforts by the Village League like our meeting with our new County Assessor next month to validate the assessments we fought for.
We still need your help for that purpose and more.
New Challenges and Opportunities
Recently, people are arriving in droves to visit or live in Lake Tahoe. And our local community is bearing the stress. While the County is supposed to be protecting our needs, instead they often pursue agendas that don’t serve our residents or are unresponsive to us. We must act to keep our neighborhoods intact and our community healthy.
The Village League has begun work drafting a petition to offer Incline Village and Crystal Bay a choice to become an incorporated city. It’s not an easy or inexpensive thing to do. But we feel the community deserves a means of self-governance that allows us to address our issues with unobstructed control over our greatest needs; like having a local planning/building department, court, police force, street maintainers and many more – A city offers numerous advantages.
Please help us serve you and our community
We need your financial support. Our all-volunteer organization, with near-zero overhead, is 100% funded by resident contributions and absorbed over $3 million dollars in costs to win your refunds.
Many grateful residents pledged to donate a portion of their proceeds to the League to support our efforts. Perhaps you too will make a charitable contribution. A donation to the Village League helps ensure that your priorities will not be ignored and guarantees that our organization can continue our mission of defending our community.
We are grateful for every donation and even a small percentage makes a difference. Your contributions to our 501 (c)(3) organization qualify as tax deductible.
