What is the legal authority that establishes CABs?
Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 244.1945 authorizes the Washoe County Commission to establish advisory boards "for any purpose relating to the County about which the Board desires study or advice". Under this statute, the Commission has created a number of Citizen Advisory Boards (CABs) on countywide issues, as well as creating the system of community CABs.

Washoe County Code, Chapter 5.425 through 5.435, sets forth the specific guidelines for the establishment and operation of CABs. Among other matters, it requires that each CAB be individually established by a resolution of the Washoe County Commission.

These regulations are available from the Washoe County Manager's Office/Community Relations. The regulations may also be viewed on the County`s website.
