February 8, 2018 – Editor’s note: NID sent this in response to Ricki Heck’s op-ed “Concerned by NID General Manager’s proposed broad spending authority

This is a clarifying note; the Nevada Irrigation District General Manager has spending authority in the amount of $100,000 per Board policy. The Administrative Practices Committee has spending authority up to $250,000, and the Board of Directors has spending authority on amounts of $250,001 and above. All transactions are reviewed by the Board monthly, and District expenses are reviewed quarterly.

We at NID take every effort to ensure our community has the most accurate information regarding the activities of the District.
