The Sept. 11 R-C Morning Report

It was a full house at the planning commission on Tuesday.

Genoa, Nev. — There’s a 9/11 observance at Mills Park 6 p.m. today in Carson City. Douglas County’s Sierra Nevada Republican Women are holding their luncheon today, but that’s sold out. Flags are at half-staff today in recognition of the day.

After four hours, planning commissioners voted to deny a permit for a slaughterhouse in Centerville 4-2. The board spent a good 20 minutes deadlocked at 3-3 before Maureen Casey switched her vote to move the issue along.

Planning commissioners discussed when they will deal with the repercussions on the master plan. As of now, they are looking at Oct. 21 for a special meeting so they’ll be able to move the planning maps to county commissioners for their first November meeting. 

Douglas County schools are getting a two-year $900,000 grant from the state that will go to help pay for the keyless and single-point entry programs. The district is still waiting to hear about a grant that would help pay for personnel like the school resource officers.

Today is the last day of the Lampe Park Farmers Market, which is open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There’s a nip in the air that means fall’s coming, with a just a few days left in summer.

Expect sunny skies with a high of 75 degrees. The wind will be calm picking up to 5 mph in the afternoon.
