Genoa, Nev. — The first day of filing for the 2022 election opens at the Douglas County Courthouse 8 a.m. today. In 2020, the campaign was at a full boil by this time, but it’s been sort of quiet on the local front. I expect that both commission races will be contested, as will all three school board races, but filing always turns up a surprise or two.
The Douglas County Public Library Bookmobile is out of action for several weeks for repairs. The library will alert everyone when it’s back in action.
The Nevada Tax Commission meets 9 a.m. today in Carson City where they will discuss and guaranteed status for Douglas, Lyon, Lander, White Pine and Pershing counties.
I know Douglas isn’t filing a waiver to keep its status for a year, but I don’t know about the rest. You can find out more at tax.nv.gov and clicking on meetings.
A metal recycling plant at Minden-Tahoe Airport goes before the Douglas County Water Conveyance Committee 4 p.m. today at the top floor of the Minden Inn. The committee will also discuss an RV storage proposal at 1100 Sawmill Road and changes to the access at the Red Barn Car Wash in Gardnerville.
Minden-Tahoe Airport Manager Bobbi Thompson will be talking about the east side of the airport 5:30 p.m. today at the Airport Advisory Committee. You can find out particulars on both the airport and ditch committees at www.douglascountynv.govand click agendas and meetings.
I wish I could say the weekend’s storm contributed in some meaningful way to the snowpack, but I really can’t. Ebbetts Pass at the top of the East Fork is down to 64 percent of average as of this morning. Carson Pass is at 61 percent. Both Heavenly and Kirkwood mountain resorts reported receiving 5 inches of snow over the weekend.
Expect sunny skies and a high temperature near 48 degrees in Minden today with the wind out of the east at 5-10 mph, shifting to west this afternoon. There’s a slight chance we might see some precipitation on Wednesday night.
