Carson City Board of Supervisors tackling bargaining agreements
A jammed Carson City Board of Supervisors meeting agenda for Thursday includes public hearings and probable action on collective bargaining agreements forged with law enforcement representatives.
Reviewed will be the city fiscal impact from the pacts, which cover three or four years and involve associations representing various bargaining units. They cover three years with the Deputy Sheriff’s Association and the Fraternal Order of Police, Northern Nevada Lodge No. 8. They are for four years with the Sheriff’s Supervisory Association and that same association on behalf of the Sheriff’s Sergeants Association.
In addition, the board will be provided an update on progress toward formation of a Commercial Area Vitalization (CAV) District downtown, according to the agenda, to “help pay for the cost of maintenance of the Downtown Carson Street project.” It’s on the agenda as an information only item, with presentation and discussion anticipated on a matter board members want to see occur.
Community Development Director Lee Plemel is slated to help provide information on the schedule for establishing such a district. It involves downtown property owners, who would assess themselves to defray expenses.
“We hope to have John Rutledge, a property owner downtown, there to give the presentation,” Plemel said last week. Rutledge is an attorney with the Rutledge Law Center. Downtown property owners must sign a petition to initiate a district, with at least half of the property valuation in the area represented.
The board on Thursday also will review and possibly take action on a Schulz Ranch Landscape Maintenance District plan and financing method for the 424-lot development at Carson City’s southern edge along Race Track Road, which is expected to begin with a first-phase of 100 lots for a housing development. Parks and Recreation personnel and a Manhard Consulting representative will handle the presentation.
Also from the Parks and Recreation Department will come a recommendation for renaming the Edmond Sports Complex the Pete Livermore Sports Complex in honor of former Assemblyman and Carson City Supervisor Pete Livermore, who died earlier this year. The recommendation came not only from the department, but also from the Parks and Recreation Commission and the Carson City Youth Sports Association.
Acting as the Liquor and Entertainment Board, which includes Sheriff Ken Furlong, the city’s governing body also will review and likely approve a liquor license for management at the Lake Tahoe Brewing Co., LLC. The brewery is being rehabilitated at 302 N. Carson St. for an expected opening in January.
