Genoa, Nev. — Douglas County commissioners are scheduled to conduct a first reading of the proposed Vacation Home Rental rules today. They’ve set aside two hours, so it sounds like they’re taking public comment.

County commissioners will hear presentations from the American Wild Horse Campaign and the Bureau of Land Management to open today’s meeting 1 p.m. at the CVIC Hall. You can go or watch online by visiting douglascountynv.gov and clicking agendas and meetings.
Minden Town Board members approved a 3 percent merit raise after giving Town Manager JD Frisby a glowing evaluation. The only mention of the siren at Wednesday’s meeting was Board Member Steve Thaler citing it for the reason he paused during a thought on something else entirely.

It’s likely we’ll learn the identity today of the intruder shot and killed in Topaz Ranch Estates on Tuesday. Wednesday’s intruder in the Ranchos was taken into custody on a burglary charge after being treated.
