The Fallon City Council approved a mobile food vendor license, heard the Fallon Police Department's June activity report and set a public hearing date for a possible land parcel annexation during July meetings.
Ailyn Manzo was approved for a mobile food vendor license for MM Food Truck. Although the business has already been in operation, the license is a new requirement of the mobile food vendor city ordinance adopted in March. MM Food Truck operates in the Nugget Casino parking lot Tuesday through Sunday, 6-10 p.m.
The council introduced an ordinance for the possible annexation of three parcels in approximately five acres at 1700 Harrigan Road, 865 Wood Drive and 875 Wood Drive. A public hearing has been set for Aug. 22 at 9 a.m.
Mayor Ken Tedford commended Councilwoman Kelly Frost on her induction into the Greenwave Hall of Fame Class of 2023. As a student at Churchill County High School, Frost excelled at softball, basketball and volleyball and was named the 1983 Female Co-Athlete of the Year.
• City Public Works Director Brian Byrd told the LVN the new Oats Park splash pad will “hopefully” be completed within the next couple of weeks. Delays caused by extremely wet weather early in the project as well as some equipment problems have delayed opening day. The splash pad and three shaded event pavilions are located the west end of the park adjacent to the outdoor pool.
Byrd also said the Oats Park pickleball courts construction is on track to be completed by September.
