Genoa, Nev. — It’s all budget all day today, I expect. Commissioners spent around seven hours meeting on Monday and got to the county manager’s budget. Douglas County employs roughly 560 people and takes in $111.4 million in revenue from all sources. The general fund is very nearly $50 million of that.
The commission met in person in their chambers at the Douglas County Courthouse for the first time in a year. They continue 9 a.m. today and on Wednesday at the courthouse.
The Town of Gardnerville works out its budget at its 4:30 p.m. board meeting in the CVIC Hall. Genoa and Minden will be doing their budgets at meetings on Wednesday night.
Douglas had a dozen new cases of the coronavirus over the weekend with 35 recoveries. The active case load was down to 114 on Monday night. We might get back down to the case numbers we saw before the Thanksgiving surge by the beginning of next week at our present rate.
A FEMA mobile vaccination unit is scheduled to visit Topaz Ranch Estates on Saturday. It’s touring Northern Nevada’s rural areas in an effort to get residents who live on the fringes vaccinated. The unit is due at the Washoe Tribe in Carson City on Thursday.
It looks like we’re going to get actual sunny skies today with a high temperature of 69 degrees and the wind picking up out of the west at 5 mph in the afternoon.
