Genoa, Nev. — Around 200 people turned up at the Minden-Tahoe Airport Town Hall on Tuesday night to discuss the future of the airport. Concerns about the Airport Advisory Board, the master plan, the lack of hangars and the airport’s “culture” dominated the conversation.

Deputies were looking for a black pickup associated with a vehicle vs. pedestrian collision 3:10 p.m. Tuesday at 10th Street and 395 where a girl was injured.

Pretty much all the residents of Cardiff Drive opposed allowing two-story homes anywhere near their fence line on the new Ashland Park development and the Gardnerville Town Board agreed on Tuesday.

It was also the last meeting for Gardnerville Town Board members Linda Slater and Ken Miller. Between Linda and Randy, the Slaters have served on that board since before the turn of the century. Both were term limited.

Tonight, Minden says farewell to Roxanne Stangle after a dozen years on the Town Board. The town board meets at 5:30 p.m. in the CVIC Hall where they’ll pick new officers.

Genoans are scheduled to discuss raising the short-term rental rates for the Town Hall, the church and other facilities in town at their meeting 5:30 p.m. in the old Raycraft Hall. There have been some abuses of the privilege that they want to address.

The turnout for Tuesday’s East Fork Fire District’s second public session on their upcoming fire regulations almost doubled to five people. A couple who built in Fish Springs attended the meeting along with two folks from Genoa Co. and a home designer.

Today will be another nice one in our break before the next storm system rolls in starting late Thursday. Expect a high of 41 degrees and another night with lows around 14 degrees. Not much wind out, so a good day for hanging decorations.
