T-TSA IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE
Date: Wednesday, June 29, 2022
From: Richard Pallante, Interim General Manager
Re: General Manager Change at Tahoe-Truckee Sanitation Agency
Tahoe-Truckee Sanitation Agency is experiencing some changes in its General Manager position. General Manager LaRue Griffin announced his resignation from the position effective last Thursday. Mr. Griffin served as General Manager for seven years. During that time, he was instrumental in implementing many significant business and financial management improvements. Board President Dan Wilkins said, “The Agency Board and North Tahoe-Truckee community thank Mr. Griffin for his many years of service to the Agency. He accomplished much in his time with the Agency. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”
The Agency Board appointed TTSA employee Richard Pallante as interim General Manager. Mr. Pallante has been working as the Agency Maintenance Department Manager. He has three decades of experience working in local government, including substantial time and experience managing a wastewater treatment plant and supervising staff. Mr. Pallante recently informed TTSA staff that he “believes in government being fiscally responsible, finding and enhancing employees’ best qualities, and utilizing technology to enhance services and to provide for an enjoyable and productive work environment,” and that he looks forward to making “TTSA a premier place to work.” Mr. Wilkins also said, “We congratulate Mr. Pallante on his appointment and the Board looks forward to working with him during this important transitionary period.” The Agency Board now begins the search for a new regular General Manager.
Mr. Griffin has agreed to work for the Agency in an interim administrative capacity to assist with the transition of General Manager responsibilities to the interim and new regular General Manager, aid the recruitment and onboarding of a regular General Manager, prepare and revise TTSA standard operating procedures, and perform other duties as may be assigned by the Board or General Manager.
