Carson City to standardize reporting transactions from pawnshops, secondhand stores

Carson City supervisors hope to refine an ordinance pertaining to pawnshops and secondhand stores when they meet Thursday.

The sheriff's office has the authority to determine the method used to report all transactions that those types of businesses engaged in on the previous day.

Currently, each business uses its own template and method of submitting such information, resulting in a backlog of tickets that have not yet been entered into the sheriff's office system.

A business impact statement has been prepared showing that the ordinance does not impose a direct or significant economic burden on a business or directly restrict its operation or expansion.

In other action Thursday, supervisors are scheduled to:

• Approve final payment of about $938,000 to A&K Earth Movers for the East-West Water Transmission Main Project, Phase 1.

• Give final approval for the sale of water and sewer bonds.

As the Liquor and Entertainment Board, officials will consider approving Vidalia Ramirez as the liquor manager for the Rodeo Night Club at 298 E. Winnie Lane.

The Carson City Board of Supervisors meets at 8:30 a.m. Thursday in the Sierra Room of the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St. Go to to download an agenda and a complete information packet.
