Genoa, Nev. — Chain controls are in effect over Kingsbury Grade this morning as the National Weather Service forecasts another inch or so of snow in Carson Valley between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. today. Highway 88 from Picketts Junction to past Kirkwood also has chain controls.

Genoans will discuss unhitching the dinner-dance that gave Candy Dance its name at their meeting 5:30 p.m. today from the craft fair that shuts down the town every September. The proposal is to hold the dinner-dance the Saturday night before Candy Dance.

There’s a 5 p.m. session where it’s possible the Genoa Town Board will remove the interim from Minden resident Jody Brunz’ title.  Brunz has worked for the town for four years and has seen three town managers.

A planned unit development and tentative subdivision map for Buckeye Farm Neighborhood No. 1 goes to the Minden Town Board today. The project is expected to return to the Douglas County Planning Commission on Tuesday, according to a legal notice appearing in the Feb. 3 edition of The Record-Courier.

A $481,091 bid for the Westwood Park Splash Pad is also up for approval tonight. The Minden Town Board meets at the CVIC Hall at 5:30 p.m. The splash pad in Minden Park has been pretty popular since it opened in 2019.

I’ve got a report that it snowed a bit last night, and we could see some more today. There’s a winter weather advisory for the West Slope of the Sierra and east of Douglas County in Lyon, Mineral and Nye counties.

The sun’s out this morning after a dreary Tuesday. The forecast calls for clouds to return late this morning. A light southerly breeze of 5-10 mph with a high of 41 degrees is today’s forecast.
