The Carson City Board of Supervisors tried to get their arms around some alternative uses for the city’s golf course out east of town. There was considerable dialog about the role of the golf course and the role of the city’s treated effluent used to water the course. Those mildly in favor of turning the golf course into something else (new housing?) made the supervisors pause to think things through. But city supervisors reminded everyone that the city’s treated wastewater system is what keeps the treated water flowing and the golf course green. The supervisors made it clear they don’t want to lose the golf course because it has some real potential to make Carson City all the more inviting when out of town tourists enjoy Carson City’s geographical location and small town charm. In the end, the issue was put on the “To Be Continued” category.
And the Supervisors discussed a range of methods to step-up the rate of Covid-19 vaccinations. All across the country there seems to be about 30 to 40% of Americans who STILL don’t want to get vaccinated. So, the year-long campaign to get everyone vaccinated is somewhat stalled. So the Centers for Disease Control are making it easier to take the vaccine distribution “on the road,” using buses and utility vehicles to bring the vaccine to the people rather than the people having to go to small medical clinics, local large medical facilities, schools, etc. Such a wider approach to distributing the vaccine seems to be more effective than any other plan to pump-up the number of Americans who otherwise might not make themselves available to get the shots.
