Nevada’s 81st legislative session introduced changes to how the state will run elections, one of the most prominent being the adoption of mail-in ballots for all registered voters.
As part of a state effort to update counties and citizens on all changes to voter and election processes, State Deputy Secretary for Elections Mark Wlaschin will present at the Board of Supervisors meeting Thursday. He will review election changes and outline opportunities for citizen involvement in the 2022 election cycle.
The supervisors will gather at 8:30 a.m. in the Robert “Bob” Crowell Board Room of the Community Center on 851 E. William St.
Alongside election changes, the board also will review and possibly adopt a Collective Bargaining Agreement with the Carson City Employees Association. The agreement has an estimated fiscal impact of $1.8 million above the city’s 5-year projections. If renewed, the agreement will be effective through June 30, 2026.
Among their other agenda items, the board will also:
• Issue a proclamation to recognize Sept. 17 as Constitution Day.
• Discuss and possibly adopt an updated Hazard Mitigation Plan to protect city residents, property, and assets.
• Discuss and possibly renew a Cooperative Agreement for the Airport Authority to continue to manage the Carson City Airport, effective through June 30, 2026, with automatic one-year renewals unless terminated.
• Review a recommendation from the Open Space Advisory Committee for the naming of six Open Space properties.
• Discuss and possibly award ARMAC Construction a contract to improve 2.5 miles of dirt road beyond the Kings Canyon Trailhead for no more than $133,377.48 or $164,239.35 with two potential alternatives.
• Discuss and possibly renew a contract between the city and the state to provide inmate services for park maintenance.
• Possibly reorganize the city manager’s office to eliminate the Department of Business Manager and Office Specialist positions, replacing them with Government Affairs Liaison/Public Information Officer and Office Manager positions, respectively.
Those who attend the meeting in-person are required to wear face coverings.
