The R-C Morning Report for May 2
May 2, 2014
Commissioners delayed approval of rate increases for the county water and sewer systems until their June 5 meeting. They voted to hold a workshop between now and then to educate users on the need for the increase, but it sounds like they’re sticking with the 3.25 percent.
Main Street in Genoa in front of Mormon Station State Historic Park is closed for the duration of the Cowboy Festival. Take it slow down Kinsey, where they have some speed bumps installed.
With all the road closures, it’s nice to report that Tioga Pass through Yosemite National Park will open at noon today. There will be limited services while the rest of the park geets in gear for the season.
Meanwhile, they approved leaving the base water rate for Sierra Country Estates water users at $310 a month. There are only a handful of ratepayers served by the gated community’s system, which is under orders both from the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection and the State Engineer.
Expect sunny skies and a high in the 80s today. The wind will pick up in the afternoon to 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph, as a front comes in. Expect temperatures to drop back into the 60s after a breezy weekend.
