6.    Town Board Member’s Comments. (Non-Action)
Bill Dolan commented on an issue concerning the domestic solar water heating program; the program is shut down.  Valley Electric Association was notified that Nye County would be implementing fees and requiring other information for installation of hot water heaters. This will cause increased costs.  The program has been rendered unfeasible until the County can reverse the Planning Department’s ruling.  If not reversed this would suspend the program indefinitely.   Mr. Dolan said the County Manager will be working with all parties to insure the program can move forward for the benefit of the community.  Bill Dolan encouraged all members of the community to contact their County Commissioner and County Manager to get the support to fix the problem.  

Vicky Parker thanked Mr. Dolan for his information and announced her support.
Mrs. Parker reported that the Pahrump Nugget is holding a Safe Halloween on Saturday.
Vicky Parker talked about a Last Chance Park workshop with landscape architects who came up with ideas for the park.  Mrs. Parker asked if the Board would like to see the areas that were considered to gather information.  Mr. Kohbarger would make the arrangements.
 
7.    Discussion and possible decision regarding Proclamation for the Marine Corps League and Toys for Tots campaign. (Action)
Vicky Parker read the proclamation for the record.

Bill Dolan motioned to accept giving the proclamation to the Marine Corps League supporting Toys for Tots.  Vicky Parker seconded the motion.

Vote passed 4 – 0.

Richard Hoery and Victor Rodriguez coordinators for the Toys for Tots program thanked the Board for their support.

8.    Discussion and possible decision regarding Bid #2009-05 – Website development and maintenance. (Action)
Nicole Shupp noted that the Board has been asked for feedback on the three selections.

Mike Darby explained that he felt the selections were fine, but felt we should be looking at a local company and talked about other criteria to be reviewed.  Bill Dolan expressed his opinion on the three recommendations and said he was in favor of moving forward.  Vicky Parker said she concurred with comments by Mr. Dolan.  Mrs. Parker stated she would prefer to postpone a decision until the next meeting so local submissions could be looked at a bit closer.  Vicky Parker noted that she felt the criteria used in the selection was valid and felt municipal experience should not be a deterrent.  

Vicky Parker motioned to postpone until the next meeting so that Mr. Maurizio could participate and everyone has time to go through not only the three proposals, but also any that they did not get to look at.  Mike Darby seconded the motion.  

Bill Kohbarger thanked Terry Bostwick and Arlette Ledbetter for stepping up to review the submissions.
