The R-C Morning Report for Dec. 9
A special use permit and variance for a really big fish farm two miles south of the Gardnerville Ranchos is on the agenda for the Douglas County Planning Commission 1 p.m. today. The aquaculture facility will enclose more than six acres, and they say the water will be recirculated so it doesn’t get out or release any strays. Planning commissioners meet 1 p.m. at the historic Douglas County Courthouse. Also on the agenda is a proposal by the Douglas County Sewer District to finance building a pond and a retention basin in the Pine Nuts by selling gravel.
A Gardnerville man accused of molesting a 11-year-old girl is scheduled to appear in Douglas County District court this morning. Miguel Briones Gutierrez, 34, waived his preliminary hearing in East Fork Justice Court last month. He has been in custody since his arrest on Sept. 26.
We’ll find out the results of a survey to alter school start times in Carson Valley at the Douglas County School Board of Trustees, meeting 3:30 p.m. today at Douglas High School. The survey was on the district’s website through noon Monday. The item is scheduled to be heard no earlier than 4:40 p.m.
We’ve got a yellow sunrise and some wispy cloudiness in the sky this morning, so I think it’s safe to report a forecast of partly cloudy with a high temperature near 48 degrees and the wind out of the west at 5 mph. It looks like the rain won’t get here until early Thursday morning still.
