Supervisors to consider changes to airport authority

The Carson City Board of Supervisors will consider legislative changes proposed by the Carson City Airport Authority when it meets Thursday.

It has been proposed that the law creating the authority be amended so that supervisors can appoint a member representing a larger area of manufacturers, and if a qualified candidate is not found, then supervisors can appoint someone who meets the other requirements of the law.

Other items on Thursday's agenda include:

• The purchase of an additional sweeper to clean the downtown area, William Street, Stewart Street and other areas.

• Authorizing the mayor to sign an interlocal agreement between Carson City and the state of Nevada for engineering design and construction improvements to the Marlette Lake Water System.

• Extension of an ordinance to temporarily eliminate the time limits on banners to allow businesses more advertising alternatives during difficult economic conditions.

• Appointing Molly Walt to the Parks and Recreation Commission to fill the unexpired term of former Supervisor Pete Livermore ending Dec. 31.

• A review of the city's operations scorecard dealing with the general fund and other funds.

• Action on two properties, one at 1180 Palo Verde Drive and another on Karin Drive.
