Emergency declarations for the five counties surrounding Lake Tahoe were part of proclamations signed Tuesday by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons.
The proclamations included the next steps each state will take to enact recommendations developed by the California-Nevada Tahoe Basin Fire Commission, created following the Angora fire to examine land use polices influencing fire prevention in the Lake Tahoe Basin.
Four Republicans and two Democrats are vying to be their party’s nominee in the June 3 California primary for the 4th Congressional District. Find out who they are and why they’re running in Wednesday’s Tahoe Daily Tribune.
The June 3 election is just around the corner and Measure A is a popular topic around town.
If 55 percent of voters approve Measure A, a property assessment would tax $38.70 per $100,000 of the assessed value of a property. It would provide $87 million to the district over 35 years, according to Measure A’s full text.
