In this edition of Board of County Commission newsletter you will learn more about the region’s CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act) allocations total of $86.1 million for our region, and how Washoe County is putting a portion of those funds to work.
We will also give you an inside look at the Truckee Meadows Fire & Rescue, after an incredibly hot, dry and busy summer and fall for our men and women on the front lines of our many wildfires.
And finally, the upcoming General Election is underway, as ballots went out to our voters last week, and beginning Saturday, October 17, early voting begins in Washoe County. I urge all registered voters to get out and vote and read more about our elections below. Already more than 30,000 ballots have been returned to the Registrar of Voters, so we are off to a strong start this election season.
Your commission is also hard at work this fall. Please see the highlights of our September meetings here
, and watch for October’s highlights as we work toward a strong finish to 2020.
