Main Street Gardnerville will likely be looking for a new executive director after the Genoans voted to offer the town manager’s job to Matt Bruback. The town board said Bruback’s event experience cinched it for them. With last year’s Candy Dance canceled by the coronavirus, the town’s main source of revenue is going to be more important that ever this year.
Bruback’s hiring is not a done deal, yet. The town still has to make a formal offer, and then the county will conduct a background check, so it will be around a month before he’s able to climb into the saddle.
A red flag warning for critical fire danger has been issued for the West Slope of the Sierra through 6 p.m. tonight. While the other side of the mountains from us, that’s where some of our smoke comes from in fire season.
Today’s weather will be pretty much cut and paste of Monday’s except a smidge warmer. Expect sunny skies with a high temperature of 79 degrees. The 5-10 mph breeze will shift from east to north this afternoon.
