For Immediate Release
Reno, Nevada. August 12, 2013. The deadline to apply for several of Washoe County’s new volunteer Citizen Advisory Boards (CABs) has been extended to September 30. The primary purpose of the CABs, which represent all five commission districts of the community, is to connect residents with County government to share ideas, solutions and identify concerns.
Applications for the following Washoe County CAB areas have been extended to September 30:
Commissioner Conversations: Commissioner Vaughn Hartung, District 4 and Vice Chairman Bonnie Weber, District 5, are hosting several neighborhood meetings to discuss the CABs with residents. A schedule of events is available online.
The CABs will be asked to study and advise their County Commissioners on local public issues including but not limited to: regulations that guide building and planning for neighborhoods, neighborhood development proposals, public safety, the scope of local government services, discussions on how to allocate local taxpayer funds, the status of erosion control and road programs and the need for regional open space programs.
Applicants will be selected by Commissioners in October and will be followed by a required CAB training. All applicants must reside within their CAB boundaries and be registered voters (if eligible) in Washoe County.
