Nevada County School Board Fights Settlement Decision

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada county school board voted unanimously to fight a Washoe County Commission decision to hold the school district responsible for repaying a portion of a multimillion-dollar settlement with Incline Village property owners.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported Wednesday that in February, the county commission voted to hold the Washoe County School District responsible for $20 million out of a $57 million settlement.

The decision means the school district will have to repay $10 million in taxes and $10 million in interest and legal fees. The settlement stems from a series of lawsuits by Incline Village residents who were overcharged on their property taxes by the county.
