Douglas leaders consider big cash donation, tour Tahoe water tank

Douglas County commissioners will tour the lower Cave Rock water tank in Glenbrook today to wrap up a pretty short meeting at Lake Tahoe.

Among the items on their agenda is a request to accept a $250,000 donation by Raymond Sidney to expand Kahle Community Center and the second reading of an ordinance expanding the use of bear-proof trash bins to the rest of Douglas County, except for Minden and Gardnerville, where recently we’ve seen the most bears.

The meeting starts at 1:30 p.m. at the county’s offices, 169 Highway 50 in Stateline. Don’t be late or blink, because it should be over in under two hours.
