The Fallon City Council at its June 6 meeting approved a retail liquor license, transferred funding to the Nevada Rural Housing authority, accepted a bid to create a seasonal ice skating rink and accepted an offer to sell a piece of city property.

Kristen Adakai, Ryan Adakai and Madison McCoy were approved for a retail liquor license for The Scooby Shack at 195 E. Center St.

Nevada Rural Housing Authority Deputy Executive Director Mishon Hurst presented a request for transfer of the city's 2023 Private Activity Bond Cap to the NRH.

The city has annually approved the request for the NRH which "promotes, provides and finances affordable housing for rural Nevadans." The funds will be used in part to fund the Home at Last and Mortgage Credit Certificate programs.

Mayor Ken Tedford called NRH "a tremendous program… to help people get into a home that couldn't otherwise qualify."


• Approximately one acre of city property at 1290 New River Parkway was approved for purchase by Ivy Land, LLC for $65,000. The buyer intends to develop the property for multiple uses including a preschool, day care, gymnastics and jujitsu.

• The council unanimously approved an agreement in the amount of $161,350 with Precision Ice Rinks of Concord, N.C. The company will provide a three-month rental of a 40-foot x 100-foot portable ice-skating rink to be located at 40 S. Carson St.

The rink will operate Nov. 18 to Jan. 7. Procedures such as setup/teardown, a ride-on-rink resurfacer and 400 pairs of rental skates are included in the contract.

Tedford said this project had been “on the radar” for about eight years and the rink will be made available to groups for events during the holiday season.
