Supervisors will be busy at their Thursday meeting, which starts at 8:30 a.m. in the community center, as they are set to review a report on the Carson City Jail as well as various committee appointments and a new dog policy.

Carson City Sheriff’s Capt. Earl Mays is expected to present a biannual report on jail conditions, including any deaths of prisoners. State law requires the report, which contains aggregated data from the year.

According to data sheets released for the supervisors’ meeting, there were 2,731 total bookings for the year (through November) and 2,433 releases. The average monthly population for the year was 180, the majority male.

According to the same data, there were 476 inmate incidents of various nature, including two assaults on officers, seven attempted suicides, 10 contraband incidents involving drugs, 19 inmate-versus-inmate incidents, and nine uses of force. There were zero escapes for the year and zero inmate grievances.

For medical activity, year to date, there were 62 medical emergencies, compared 58 in 2021.

In other action, supervisors:

• Will consider appointing members of the board itself and other designees to various positions and organizations, including Mayor Pro Tempore (in case of a vacancy), the Regional Transportation Commission, the Audit Committee, the Nevada Association of Counties, the Nevada League of Cities Board of Directors, the Carson City Culture and Tourism Authority, the Carson City Airport Authority, the Carson Water Subconservancy District, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and others.

Board of Supervisors and others’ current appointments 

• Will consider four appointments of applicants to the 911 Surcharge Advisory Committee, each for a two-year term. Denise Stewart has requested reappointment. New applications were submitted by James Powell, Jed McComber and Steven Figone.

• Will consider four appointments to the city’s Cultural Commission, two for partial terms and two for terms expiring in 2026. New applications were submitted by Samuel Flakus, Baylee Spear, Kylie Howard, Valerie Moore, Deborah Lambin and Michael Smith.

“The board may appoint four members to the Cultural Commission, or three members if the board appoints a member of the board to the Cultural Commission,” reads a staff summary.

• Will consider a final subdivision map for Roseview Townhomes LLC resulting in the creation of 52 lots for attached single-family residences on 3.45 acres. A zoned neighborhood business Planned Unit Development, the project is located at 1147 W. College Parkway.

According to planning staff, the board approved a tentative subdivision in 2021 and an amendment to the conditions of approval this year. The applicant has obtained a site improvement permit.

• Will consider a new policy for dog rules and regulations, including a resolution to allow dogs in certain parks, trails and open space areas.

“CCMC (Carson City Municipal Code) 13.02.090 prohibits dogs in all Carson City parks except those exempted by the Board of Supervisors,” reads a staff summary. “This item, if approved, would exempt certain parks, trails and open space areas from this restriction in order to allow owners to bring their dogs. The proposed dog policy establishes rules and regulations, including but not limited to, areas where dogs may be off leash, areas where dogs must remain leashed and provisions related to enforcement of the policy.”
