Genoa, Nev. — A $20,000 fine against a Stateline homeowner for operating a vacation home rental without a permit was upheld on Wednesday by the VHR Advisory Committee. It’s a good bet that fine will be appealed to the county Board of Commissioners.

The county has money in the bank to build two lanes of its portion Muller Lane Parkway. According to the capital improvement program, the county has budgeted $4.4 million in the current year and $5.8 million next year for the project. On Tuesday, County Engineer Jeremy Hutchings said it’s possible work will start next spring.

There might be a buyer interested in purchasing the Burga property across Eddy Street from the JT, according to Gardnerville Town Manager Erik Nilssen. The buildings on the property have been empty for several years and the owner is facing a code violation.

The state is in the planning process to abate the asbestos lead paint and a former heating oil tank at the old Gardnerville Laundry, which will require a public comment period. That work could start in August, maybe.

It’s going to be a blustery Thursday with a lake wind advisory 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Tahoe and a blowing dust advisory for the deserts east of here.

Today will be cooler with a high temperature of 59 degrees and the wind out of the south at 5-10 mph, shifting west to 15-20 mph later this morning. We could see some 35 mph gusts.
