Tahoe City in Placer County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
William B. Layton Park
North Lake Tahoe will miss the unselfish way the Bill worked for the community. Past General Manager of the Tahoe City Public Utility District, he was active in the Historical Society – Gatekeeper’s Cabin restoration drive, Rotary Club, Boy Scouts, Chamber of Commerce, Easter Seals and scholarship drives and more. We will miss Bill’s friendly smile, genuine charm and his photographic flair.
