A) Action to appoint members to the Carson City Board of Equalization and to confirm the designation by the Mayor of a chairperson of the Carson City Board of Equalization. (Dave Dawley)
Staff Summary: NRS 361.340 establishes the Carson City Board of Equalization as consisting of five members. The Carson City Board of Supervisors is required to appoint the members of the Board of Equalization by a majority vote and the Mayor is required to designate a member of the Board of Equalization as the chairperson.

Staff Summary: The owners of APN 003-225-10 appealed the Assessor's determination of the Property Tax Cap Abatement for the fiscal year 2006, 2007 and 2008. Per NAC 361.61066, the Chief Administrative Hearing Office Administrative Law Judge for the Department of Taxation, Mr. Gregory L. Zunino, ruled in favor of the appellant and ordered the Assessor to correct the property tax cap. The Assessor's office is asking that the amount of taxes be adjusted to reflect the correct tax cap per the "The Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law" as stated in this decision going back to fiscal year 2005. These recalculations then affect the fiscal year 2009 and 2010 taxes requiring additional adjustments.
C) Action to approve the removal of a portion of the taxes from parcel number 009-803-03 (1467 Mallard) from the 2006/07, 2007/08, 2008/09 and the 2009/10 Real Property Tax Roll per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $730.33. (Dave Dawley)
Staff Summary: The owner of APN 009-803-03 notified the Assessor's Office on December 18, 2009 that the property was being taxed with the incorrect abatement cap. The owner sent in the "Owner Occupancy Card" in a timely manner for the 2006/07 fiscal year, which stated the property was his "primary residence." However, the Assessor's Office incorrectly entered the property as a "Rental" which capped the home at the higher property cap. Per NRS 361.765, the Assessor's Office is asking that the amount of taxes be adjusted to reflect the correct tax cap.
Annual Report of the Carson City Recorder Per NRS 247.305. (Alan Glover)

(Sandy Scott)
Staff Summary: In preparation of taking ownership of numerous State streets, Carson City Public Works must purchase a snow blower to pick up snow from Carson Street and others as no storage space is available in the downtown corridors. This unit will also enable us to clear the business district more efficiently and provide a means to clear and widen the roads in higher elevations with less damage to curbs and other fixed facilities when necessary. It was originally planned to purchase the blower next year, however due to the long lead time, staff is recommending that the purchase be made now to ensure that the equipment is here for next year.
