The PVGID asks that residents place their trashcans and recycle cans off the roadway, beyond the ditch/swale. We have also put in a request with Waste Management asking that the drivers place the trashcans back off the roadway.  Trashcans on the roadways or in the ditches/swales hamper the GID’s road maintenance efforts.

About Us:

The Palomino Valley General Improvement District (PVGID) is a quasi-municipal corporation responsible for maintaining certain roads in the Palomino Valley/Warm Springs area. This includes most roads in the area, with the major exceptions of Pyramid Highway and Winnemucca Ranch Road. Funding for the PVGID comes from property taxes assessed on properties within the District, as well as a portion of the sales and use taxes collected statewide.

The PVGID was formed by Washoe County on July 28, 1973, pursuant to Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 318. Its original scope of services included sewerage, drainage and recreational facilities in addition to roadways (which were originally intended to be paved). Changes in development plans for the District and related reductions in projected revenues for the PVGID resulted in a reduction of its scope to "operations, repair and maintenance" of certain roadways within the District's boundaries.

The PVGID maintains 92.8 miles of road, of which 19.08 miles are asphalt-surfaced and the remainder are unsurfaced. Maintenance activities are primarily performed by PVGID employees (currently there are only two employees) using PVGID-owned equipment.

The PVGID is governed by an elected, but un-paid, board consisting of five Trustees (see current roster below). Trustees are elected to staggered four-year terms. Elections are held in even-numbered years on the same ballot as other federal, state and local offices. Vacant seats may be filled by appointment by the remaining Trustees, with an election to follow in the next even-numbered year.
