Any member of the Board or any citizen may request that an item be taken from the consent agenda, discussed and acted upon separately during this meeting. The Mayor, or the Mayor Pro-Tem, retains discretion in deciding whether or not an item will be pulled off the consent agenda.
For Possible Action: To approve the removal of the taxes from the 2011/12 real property tax roll from Assessors parcel number 008-185-03 (3033 Thurman Cir) per NRS 361.091 in the amount of $163.14. (Kimberly Adams)
Staff Summary: The Assessor's Office is requesting the Board of Supervisors to remove the taxes from the 2011/12 real property tax roll from Assessors parcel number 008-185-03 (3033 Thurman Cir) in the amount of $163.14 per NRS 361.091. Initially, the exemption was based on the Department of Veterans Affairs 100% un-employability rating. But due to an opinion from the Carson City District Attorney=s office, the ratings must be based on the overall service-connected disability rating and not un-employability. The veterans were notified and requested to provide a letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs stating that they were in fact, rated at 100% for their service-connected disability. Because these letters take time to receive, we were unable to update our records before the 2011/12 tax roll closed. The Assessor's office is requesting that the remaining taxes be removed from the 2011/12 real property tax roll in the amount of $163.14.
8-2. Parks and Recreation - Open Space

(Juan Guzman)
Staff Summary: This action will result in Carson City accepting a grant from the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act - Parks, Trails, and Natural Areas (SNPLMA-PTNA) for $656,200. The monies are to be used to assist with the fee title acquisition of the Bently property approximating 470 acres and located within the Carson River Canyon.

Staff Summary: CCMC Chapter 18.06.020 provides for the Board of Supervisors to appoint seven members of the Historic Resource Commission.

Staff Summary: Sherry Soulam, owner of parcel 008-861-29, appealed to the Board of Equalization and was granted relief for prior years based on the owner occupied 3% maximum yearly tax increase. While the 2010-2011 and prior tax years were corrected, the Treasurer's office erred in not setting the prior year taxes to the adjusted amount. Thus the tax amount for 2011-2012 tax year was calculated in error.
