R-C Letters to the Editor for Feb. 18, 2021

A band of clouds winds across Carson Valley’s sky. Make voices heard Editor: Our recently elected commissioners promised to address the transportation issues that face the county.

This Thursday will be the day. The Board of County Commissioners meeting agenda No. 14 proposes to approve transferring $1.1 million from the County’s Regional Transportation Fund (where money is saved for construction plans for Muller Parkway) to the County’s General Fund. They propose to defund Muller Parkway the only plan to help alleviate traffic on 395 in Minden and Gardnerville. If you want to hold recently elected commissioners accountable, it’s important to pay attention to what they’re doing. If you are in favor of the construction of Muller Parkway to help divert traffic from 395, it’s important to let them know that during this Thursday’s meeting. Public comment is the only way that we may be able to get them to keep their promises. The BOCC meeting starts at 1 p.m. They will probably get to item No. 14 after 3:30 p.m. Please check the county website on how to comment during publicly allowed commentary. This is our county; make our voices heard.
