A) Action to approve the reduction of the real property tax roll for property identified as subdivision common area. Taxes and penalties to be removed from the roll is $3,367.70. (Al Kramer)

Staff Summary: Until this year these properties were misidentified as saleable lots, causing property taxes to be calculated. Affected parcels are 9-801-01, 9-801-11, 9-802-02 and 9-813-08.

B) Acknowledgment of affidavit of delinquent notice mailing for real property taxes. (Al Kramer)

Staff Summary: On May 28, 2009, the State of Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) relinquished ownership to Carson City a portion of Carson River Road including Lloyd's Bridge which crosses the Carson River. Because the Division of State Lands holds title to the bed and banks of the Carson River, an easement between the Division of State Lands and Carson City is required. The proposed Easement Amendment is essentially a transfer of property rights previously granted to NDOT.
