Commissioners take action on ordinance changes

Staff Report

The Churchill County Commission met Friday to discuss or take action on the following agenda items:

A public hearing and approval were conducted for Bill No. 2018-F, Ordinance 7, that is amending the provisions of Title 3 of the Churchill County Code that involves vacation, sick leave and Chapter 3.12.040 of the drug and alcohol-free workplace for all employees.

The proposed change will modify the county policy so that vacation and sick leave are accrued on a bi-weekly basis based on the number of hours in paid status during that pay period. The third change relates to changes made by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration and recently adopted by the Nevada OSHA.

Proposed changes were approved by the Employee Management Committee.

A first reading for Bill 2018-E, Ordinances 22, 24, 27, 32, 29, 51, 87, 90 and 106 was held. A public hearing will be conducted at the next commission meeting on Dec. 17 at 1:15 p.m.

The ordinances cover a multitude of areas to include code enforcement, health and safety, rubbish dumping, buildings and construction, building permits, zoning and land use, division of land, transfer of development rights, development standards, impact fees and flood damage prevention.
