Application Deadline:  September 23, 2022 @ 5 p.m.

Position Summary:

Operating under the Board/Manager form of government, five Board Members are directly elected for alternating four-year or two-year terms.  The General Manager is appointed by the Board and is responsible for carrying out the Board’s policy directions.

The position of General Manager is an at-will, FLSA exempt contract position that reports directly to the Board of Directors.  This is a hands-on, community position with a high degree of staff interaction and therefore not appropriate for remote work of any kind.  The current upcoming vacancy is due to the retirement of the existing General Manager.

The new General Manger will have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on the District and the Truckee community.  Under minimal guidance, the General Manger directs all activities of the District, subject to the policies approved by the Board of Directors and provides day-to-day leadership for the District.

The General Manager is supported by a talented and experienced team of department heads.  The General Manager provides leadership and direction for the District’s departments including: Administrative Services; Recreation, Arts, and Community Services; Park and Facilities Maintenance; and the functions in the General Manager’s Office including the Board Clerk, Records and Retention, Public Information, Information Technology, and Human Resources.

This position has overall responsibility and control of all District property.

The scope of work is highly complex in nature.  The General Manager works from general directions or broadly defined missions of the District and policies of the Board.  The incumbent has extensive contact with public officials, state/federal/local agencies, other public/private organizations, and the general public.
