GRGID to vote on process for name change

Staff reports

Gardnerville Ranchos General Improvement District board will vote on the process to determine the GID’s name at Wednesday night’s meeting at the district office.

District Manager Bob Spellberg will go over the most requested names and the board will decide how the name will be chosen. The last day to turn in name suggestions was April 30.

The community will have an opportunity to vote on which name they want sometime this month.

n Fire station. East Fork Fire and Paramedic districts Chief Jim Reinhardt will be addressing the board to request permission to construct a new volunteer fire and paramedic station across from the current Ranchos Fire Station. The new station on the 22-acre parcel of open land on Mitch Drive would replace the too-small current station.

The organization has outgrown their present location and have been unable to build on land on Tillman Lane that the GRGID sold to Douglas County for that purpose because of drainage problems.

At the January meeting, a member of the Ranchos station addressed the board and asked they would consider selling them 2.5 acres of property at that location. The board asked that the districts master plan the land and bring it back to them.

n Bluerock park. The design for a public park on Bluerock Road will be approved so the bidding process for construction can begin. The board will also vote on requesting the Douglas County Commission to use the neighborhood construction park tax funds to construct and equip the $80,000 park.

n Development. The board will review a request by Western Engineering to build a commercial development on land owned by Jerry Bing on Dresslerville Road next to the Treehouse Nursery. The plan includes seven commercial buildings.

n Staffing. The board will also continue their discussion on whether the district needs to hire more maintenance employees.
