County Commission to Address Manufactured Homes, Highway Safety plus a full agenda January 6, 2022

January 6, 2022 the Board of County Commissioners start the new year with a full agenda. The Board is slated to elect a chairman and vice-chairman at 9:00 AM. Commissioner Vida Keller currently serves as Chair with Commissioner Ken Gray as Vice-Chair

9:05 AM the Board will address an amendment to Lyon County Code that will require Manufactured Homes to be placed on a permanent foundation. Commissioner Keller proposed this ordinance in December but redacted additional amendments requiring two-car garages be built any time a Manufactured Home was being placed. This amendment to County Code WILL NOT affect existing Manufactured Homes. The amendment will bring Lyon County into conformity with existing state law and surrounding jurisdictions. A copy of the proposed ordinance can be found here:
