The R-C Morning Report for Nov. 9
November 9, 2016
Genoa, Nev. — Douglas County hit 93.83 percent turnout in the election, with 10,263 voters casting a ballot on Election Day. It sounds like counting the 3,213 absentee ballots held up final results until after 11 p.m.
The good news is results held based on the first blast. Both Douglas County tax questions were defeated. Incumbents held onto their seats in Minden, on the Minden-Gardnerville Sanitation District and the East Fork Swimming Pool District.
Douglas followed the nation, instead of Nevada, in supporting Donald Trump, who will be the next president of the United States.
A decision on reducing the number of culverts on Zerolene Lane will wait until December, after planning commissioners decided they wanted to hear from the towns and have staff examine a presentation made by R.O. Anderson at Tuesday's meeting.
However, a proposal for mixed use commercial on the former Sierra Gourmet Grill lot got the planning commission's endorsement. The project will have one commercial building on the front portion and 21 apartments on the back.
Expect another nice day today with sunny skies and a high near 71 degrees. The wind will be out of the southwest at about 5 mph.
