Carson City will host three workshops to answer questions and take public comments regarding the potential use of a 1/8th-cent sales tax to help construct several public infrastructure projects. These projects include commercial corridor improvements for Downtown, North Carson Street, South Carson Street, William Street and Hwy 50 East, a new 41,500 square foot Multi-Purpose Athletic Center and a new 10,955 square foot Animal Services Facility.
During each two-hour workshop, the first hour will be an open house format when citizens may meet individually with City staff to ask questions and learn more about individual projects. Open public comments and questions will be taken during the second hour of each workshop. Public comments will also be accepted in writing throughout the entire workshop. The second hour of the January 29 workshop will be televised on ACCTV Carson City government access television (Charter Cable) or can be viewed online at www.accesscarsoncity.org/?page_id=2560.
The Board of Supervisors will consider the matter and also take public comment at its meeting on February 20, 2014, in the Community Center Sierra Room, when it considers the Plan of Expenditure. Contact City Hall at 887-2100 or go to www.carson.org/agendas within three days of the meeting for an agenda and an approximate time that the matter will be discussed during the meeting.
