The Incline Village General Improvement District board has decided to rescind health care insurance benefits to domestic partners of district employees.
The action, taken on a 3-2 vote Wednesday, reverses a similar board vote last August in favor of offering domestic partner benefits.
Board Chairman Ted Fuller says he voted to rescind the benefits because of the need to cut costs and the potential for abuse.
Board member John Bohn says he again voted against the benefits because he doesn’t think the north Lake Tahoe community supports them.
But board member Bea Epstein, who voted for the benefits both times, says she thinks there was insufficient discussion of the issue and she wants the board to revisit it at a future meeting. MORE Tahoe board strips partner benefits
