The public is invited to participate by providing ideas, comments and suggestions concerning potential projects. Public meetings will be held on:
No members of the public will be allowed in the meeting room due to concerns for public safety resulting from the COVID-19 emergency and pursuant to the Governor of Nevada’s Declaration of Emergency Directive 006 Section 1 which suspends the requirement in NRS 241.023(1)(b) that there be a physical location designated for meetings of public bodies where members of the public are permitted to attend and participate. This meeting will be held by teleconference only.
