NEVADA CITY, Calif. December 12, 2018 – The Nevada County BOS recognized Nancy Weber on her retirement from the NID Board. Weber served for 20 years as the District 1 Director.
The resolution presented to her reads as follows:
“The Nevada County Board of Supervisors takes great pleasure in recognizing Nancy Weber for her twenty years of dedicated service to Nevada County, Nevada City, the Nevada Irrigation District (NID) and to the community at large.
During her twenty-year tenure at NID, Nancy has been an innovator and notable leader in NID’s nearly 100 years of history. Nancy has led as a voice for the local communities she served, including spearheading two major water line extension projects for the Cement Hill and Banner Mountain areas, providing safe drinking water for over 400 residents, who, prior to Nancy’s advocacy were unserved.
Nancy’s leadership began, years ago, with prioritizing and caring for the source of our pristine water resources as an advocate and strong voice for our watersheds. She worked as a driving force behind creating NID’s first watershed program that remains active today and continues to make a difference in the health of our watersheds and forests alike. She also helped lead NID to create an innovative Vegetation Management Program, striving to seek alternatives to the use of herbicides along the 450 miles of NID open canals. Both of these programs were implemented thanks to the leadership of Nancy Weber.
Nancy also served as a champion to further NID’s transparency with the community and tenaciously worked for both live streaming and video archiving to keep the public informed of NID’s actions and policies. Nancy’s many accomplishments and endless dedication to our community and watershed will leave an indelible mark of lasting leadership on our community and watershed for generations to come.
Therefore, it is with great pleasure that the Nevada County Board of Supervisors congratulates and thanks Nancy Weber for her twenty years of dedicated service to Nevada County, Nevada City, the Nevada Irrigation District (NID) and to the community at large and wishes her the best in her future endeavors.”
