The Carson City Board of Supervisors will consider the transfer of South Carson Street from the state to the city at its meeting Thursday.

The board will vote whether to approve the fourth amendment to the nearly 20 year-old Carson City Freeway Agreement between the city and the Nevada Department of Transportation.

The amendment would transfer South Carson Street from Fairview Drive to Snyder Avenue to the city.

As part of the agreement, NDOT would first do about $1 million in minor maintenance and provide $5.1 million to the city to conduct a larger project, which was originally to be done by NDOT.

Part of the goal is let the city design and manage the work, which would likely involve significant changes to the street, such as a reduction in lanes, because of an expected drop in traffic due to the freeway bypass.

The proposed agreement also would clarify the remaining $7.1 million the city owes to the state per the agreement for the construction of the freeway would not be payable until after the completion of the interchange at Spooner Junction, which is not yet scheduled.

The board also will vote to appoint a member each to the Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee and to the Planning Commission.

Jason Justice is the only applicant for RACC, as a property owner from redevelopment area 1.

But the board will consider six candidates for the Planning Commission, including Mark Sattler, whose term is expiring and who is requesting reappointment. Hope Tingle, Janice McCauley, Charles Borders Jr., Robert “Stacey” Giomi and Aster Grima are the new applicants who will be interviewed by the board.

Both the RACC and Planning Commission appointments are scheduled to be heard after a lunch break, starting at 2 p.m.

The supervisors also will consider the ongoing tax incentive agreement between the city and Richard Campagni, owner of the city’s Ford, Hyundai, Scion and Toyota car dealerships.

This would extend the 11 year-old agreement for two years, providing incentive payments of 10 percent of the city’s portion of the Basic City-County Relief Tax and Supplemental City-County Relief Tax, approximating $386,000 based on the auto dealer’s sales projections.

The board also will establish the goals and objectives for Nick Marano, the city manager, for the review period between June 3, 2016, and June 1, 2017.

Marano received his annual performance review during the board’s June 2 meeting.

In other actions, the board will vote to amend a contract with ICSolutions in order to comply with a Federal Communications Commission ruling to reduce fees for inmate phone calls; amend a recreational vehicle parking ordinance in order to make it more enforceable; adopt the maximum number of allowable residential building permits and commercial water usage under the city’s Growth Management Ordinance as recommended by the Planning Commission; and, acting as the Liquor and Entertainment Board, approve Douglas Young as the liquor manager for Shoe Tree Brewing Company, a new brewery going in at 1496 Old Hot Springs Road, on the same property as Sassafras Eclectic Food Joint and the Carson Hot Springs Resort.

The Board of Supervisors meets at 8:30 a.m., Sierra Room, Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.
