Another Car Wash being built on South Carson Street

The Carson City Board of Supervisors Thursday granted a local company permission to build a car wash at 3390 South Carson Street.  The new car wash will sit on a large parcel and the car washing business will keep their water consumption to a maximum daily use of 15,000 gallons –  35 gallons per vehicle, maxiumum.  All washes-and-rinses will undergo reclamation procedures.  

No word on when the new car wash will be up and ready for business. 

CC Supervisors modifying the city’s skyline….

Our Board of Supervisors found themselves this morning debating over what kind of lettering to adorn the main pavilion at Mills Park.  The debate among the Supervisors was somewhat split – two supervisors wanted 36″ lettering contending 48″ letters are too big.  Those who wanted 48″ lettering deemed 36″ to be too small.  In the end the supervisors settled on the 48″ ‘er.  So city parks staff have their orders – 48″ it is.

New affordable housing comin’ up on Butti between Airport and Fairview

The Supervisors also got an update from city staff on the progress being made to build highrise affordable housing on Butti Road between Airport and Fairview.  The designers and contractors will get down to the strategic details on what kind of materials to work with and the overall “look” of the place.  One advantage of the project is that ground-floor apartments will be on the ground floor.  But tenants will start enjoying distant views, including the Sierra Nevada to the west.  You can bet that many folks and families will be competing for one of the 160 apartments that will eventually help relieve Carson City’s tight housing market.  And word has it this project is only the start of getting Carson residents paying reasonable rents rather than what we see today.

Carson City Transportation – “They’re in the money…”

CARSON CITY — The Nevada Department of Transportation is applauding the signing of the new five-year federal infrastructure funding bill, which will support the Department’s ability to maintain and build the State’s vast network of roads, highways, and bridges. The funding bill will provide $2.5 billion to the Nevada State Highway Fund over the course of five years.

Over the next year, that will mean an additional $83.5 million, an approximate 21 percent increase, in federal transportation funding allocated to Nevada. Funding will ultimately increase to $520.7 million in fiscal year 2026, a 31 percent increase over current funding, when the legislation expires. Also included in the transportation bill is funding for bridge preservation to help maintain the state’s more than 2,100 bridges amid a $171 million backlog in bridge preservation work statewide.

“This funding is incredibly important for building and maintaining the critical infrastructure that Nevada’s growing population requires,” said Nevada Department of Transportation Director Kristina Swallow. “While our long-term transportation funding constraints still need to be addressed, we are pleased that this historic funding will put us on a better path to creating a more connected, sustainable and equitable future for all Nevadans.”

NDOT will use publicly established transportation priorities developed within the One Nevada Plan to make performance-based decisions on future transportation projects and programs to support Nevada mobility, safety, jobs and economic development. Priorities include equitably meeting long-term needs of all transportation users such as bicyclists, motorists, pedestrians, and public transit users with a well-preserved, sustainable and safe state transportation system supporting the state’s economy.

NV Energy is warning its customers about a scam recently making the rounds.

A spokesperson for the utility says someone falsely identifies themself as an NV Energy employee in calls to both homes and businesses.

That person makes threats about electric service and demands an immediate payment, often via MoneyPak card or Zelle.

NV Energy says it does not call customers to demand immediate payment for any reason, and it does not take payments via Zelle, Venmo or MoneyPak.

Murder Suspect Arrested at local gas station

An employee at a gas station on College Parkway Tuesday night was eyeing a man in a car who looked suspicious. The employee called 9-1-1 and summoned sheriff’s deputies to the scene. The man in the car refused to come out, and at one point, threw out a large kitchen knife.

After a half-hour of negotiations the man came out of his car and was immediately taken into custody after deputies had earlier learned that the driver, Jamal Coleman, was a suspect in a murder in the Las Vegas area.

Coleman was taken to the Carson City Jail where he awaits transport back to Las Vegas where authorities there will take over the case.

Failing brakes said to have caused fatal accident at 395 and Spooner

So. Carson and Hwy 50W
2 dead, 4 badly injured, 3 Careflighted to Renown. Update on the horrific accident a few days ago at the bottom of Spooner.  Two dead and several injured.

Roney Gonzalez of Hollywood, Florida, was coming down the hill from Lake Tahoe, driving a vehicle while pulling a very large boat.  According to the Nevada Highway Patrol, Gonzales underestimated the weight of the boat and the trailer.  It didn’t take long for Gonzales to figure out that the brakes on his truck were giving out on the steep downhill run. As Gonzalez saw the bottom of the grade, he ran out of braking power.  He blew through the intersection at Highway 395 and in so doing hit several vehicles which had the green light.  The impacts were horrendous.  An elderly couple from Dayton died from their injuries.
Gonzales was arrested on numerous charges of reckless driving and not having working brakes on the trailer.  He remains in the Carson City Jail.
