April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Genoa, Nev. — Genoa Town Board members will discuss seeking $202,810 in federal recovery funds to regrade the town’s roads, complete design on repairs and paint the 112-year-old town church, install air conditioning in the town hall and work on the trees in the town park.

The town lost $310,564 due to the cancellation of the 2020 Candy Dance, and they’re asking the rest be allocated to future projects including the nearly $1 million estimated to actually conduct repairs on the church’s foundation. The Genoa Town Board meets 5:30 p.m. today in the Town Hall.

Genoa Town Board Chairwoman Linda Birdwell is resigning from the Genoa Town Board. Board member Brian Crowe is the only person on the board seeking election to one of its three seats, so there is going to be a search for new board members in the near future.

Minden Town Board members are discussing their capital improvement plan for next year, which includes undergrounding utilities along Highway 395. Minden Town Board members meet 5:30 p.m. today at the CVIC Hall.

Planning commissioners meet 1 p.m. today at a special meeting to review the VHR ordinance revisions before they go to county commissioners for a full hearing on Thursday.

The forecast high temperatures anticipated for later in the week are continuing to soften as we get closer and are now predicted to hit 80 degrees on Thursday and Friday. That might be sufficient to break the 79-degree record for April 8 set in 1977, but we’ll see.

Expect sunny skies with a high near 71 degrees, with the wind calm picking up out of the east at 5 mph this afternoon.
