TONOPAH — The appointment of former commissioner Joni Eastley to assistant county manager will be up for approval when the Nye County Commission meets at 10 a.m. here Monday.
Commissioners didn’t have the majority vote to ratify County Manager Pam Webster’s appointment of Eastley at a Dec. 18 meeting when Commissioner Butch Borasky voted against and Commissioner Gary Hollis was in the hospital.
The appointment of a chairman and numerous other committee assignments are also on the agenda. Lorinda Wichman has been the county commission chairman, but she may vacate the position as she is being nominated for vice-chairman of the Nevada Association of Counties.
The county commission normally meets on the first and third Tuesdays. State statute requires the first meeting in an odd numbered year to be held on Monday.
The meeting can be viewed at commissioners’ chambers at 2100 Walt Williams Dr. on the Calvada Eye in Pahrump, or via the Internet at www.nyecounty.net and clicking on public meeting videos. Two new county commissioners, Frank Carbone and Donna Cox, will take their seats.
Appointments are also due to NACO, the Pahrump Regional Planning Commission, Nye County Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, Regional Transportation Committee, the nuclear waste liaison, state legislative issues, Nevada Public Agency Insurance Pool, Tri-County Working Group, Capital Improvements Advisory Committee, Local Emergency Planning Committee, Southern Nevada Workforce Investment Board, Public Utilities Commission, Quad State County Coalition, Central Nevada Regional Water Authority, Nye County Water District, Capital Improvement Advisory Committee and others.
Commissioners will consider scheduling a public hearing for a bill extending a one-year moratorium on impact fees in the Pahrump Regional Planning District and allowing developers to pay in installments.
An intralocal contract with the Nevada Department of Business and Industry for the inspection of manufactured homes and commercial coaches is up for approval.
A public hearing will be held on a bill amending Nye County Code regarding the appointment and removal of the Beatty fire chief, records and reports, badges, insignia and other matters.
