Carson City Board to act on Tahoe Ridge
Setting the stage for a planned Tahoe Ridge Winery & Marketplace downtown is among a multitude of matters Carson City’s governing board will tackle Thursday.
The Board of Supervisors, acting in concert with Sheriff Ken Furlong as the city’s Liquor and Entertainment Board, will review and likely act on the application of Howard Jacheus to be liquor manager for Tahoe Ridge Winery & Marketplace, LLC, at 1105 S. Carson St., the site of the former Station Grill restaurant. It’s in a separate building northwest of the Carson Mall at the north end of the mall parking lot.
The limited liability company, which is tied to the Tahoe Ridge Winery in Minden, seeks a combination license to offer both alcoholic consumption on the premises and for off-site package sales. The building, which is 10,000 square feet, is going to have a restaurant, bar, wine tastings and handle catering as well. The license application cites the prospect for 25 employees.
Meanwhile, in a lengthy meeting covering morning, afternoon and evening, the governing board among other things also will take up two items under finance dealing with $18 million in sewer bonds.
The first is a resolution directing the city clerk to notify city government’s Debt Management Commission of intent to issue the general obligation bonds, which is going to be secured by a pledge of revenues from city sewer and drainage system funds. The second will confirm engagement of Sherman & Howard as bond counsel for the issuance. Those routine items pave the way to take on the debt.
Other action in the morning session, which will start at 8:30 a.m. in the Community Center’s Sierra Room, will include a resolution amending the 2014-15 Redevelopment Authority budget to add uses for more than $170,000, hear a federal Bureau of Land Management presentation on a resource management plan, and get a briefing on fire protection rating classification, which impacts insurance rates.
The 2 p.m. afternoon session will include reports from Carson City Health Officer Dr. Susan Pintar and from Nicki Aaker, director of city Health and Human Services. Other afternoon items include discussion about roadway maintenance funding, as well as a Lean Management Training and Greenbelt Certification Program.
In an evening session set for 6:30 p.m., the board takes up community development and planning matters. Among the items is an appeal over a Historic Resources Commission decision on a development proposed at 812 N. Division St., which is expected to turn out a significant group from the historic district.
