Geis Appointed to I.V. Community Services District

Bob Geis, the county’s recently retired auditor-controller, returned to the 4th floor of the County Administration Building to ask for a new job. “You’re probably thinking, what is he doing?” Geis joked. “I’m looking to do something fun.” Geis was unanimously appointed to serve on the seven-member board of the newly formed Isla Vista Community Services District. Given that the district’s accompanying tax measure failed in November — it needed a two-thirds vote of Isla Vista — Geis pledged to find creative financial means. Board meetings start next week.
