Nestled just over the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Truckee is just one and a half hours northeast of Sacramento, or 30 minutes from Lake Tahoe’s north shore. The Town has existed for over 150 years, and incorporated as a municipality in 1993 and today has evolved into a destination hot-spot for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy year-round winter and summer activities. The Town has over 16,800 year-round residents (50% of Truckee’s homes are occupied year-round, adding another 20,000+ residents in the summer and on holidays), and over 160,000 visitors annually.  

Representing the town’s constituency is an engaged five-member town council committed to maintaining an excellent quality of life for all who live here, and promoting a transparent, safe, responsible, inclusive government. Truckee staff work hard to accomplish the Council’s goals, and keep community members informed and engaged, via numerous boards, committees and commissions where constituents have a say and make an impact on the community they live in.  The Town of Truckee is not a full-service city, but has  five departments: Community Development, Administrative Services, Town Clerk/Communications, Public Works and Engineering, and Police and Public Safety.  Additionally, the Town is served by several special districts including: electric and water service, sanitation services, waste disposal, a local airport, parks and recreation facilities, a hospital district, and a fire protection agency.
