The R-C Morning Report
May 3, 2007
Gardnerville Town Manager Jim Park has clicked up into contention for the position of Lyon County manager. Park is at the bottom of the list of finalists after a candidate from Georgia dropped out. At present Lyon is being managed by Minden Town Board member and Douglas County manager emeritus Bob Hadfield. I wish Park luck, and given what happened to the last Lyon County manager, luck could mean a lot of things.
The Douglas County growth ordinance gets a second hearing tonight at or after 5 p.m. at the commissioner meeting in Minden. The county has set aside 90 minutes for the discussion, but these tend to go later.
Today we’re in the cusp between a couple of storms, but we’re looking at some wind today with the chance of precipitation increasing to this evening. The chance of precipitation tonight is up to 60 percent with a chance of snow showers on Friday. Reports are that big fat flakes were falling at Kingsbury last night. Chains or snow tires are being required to get over Carson Pass.
