9. Consent Agenda

All matters listed under the consent agenda are considered routine and may be acted upon by the Board of Supervisors with one action and without an extensive hearing. 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.

9-1. Assessor

Action to approve the removal of a portion of the taxes from parcel number 008-175-12 (2131 Sneddon Wy) from the 2010/11 Real Property Tax Roll per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $310.79. (Kimberly Adams)
