Douglas County Public Meetings: Materials and Participation

Minden, NV-   In response to Governor Sisolak’s Declaration of Emergency Directive 006 suspending certain requirements related to the conduct of public meetings (available on the Governor’s website here: http://gov.nv.gov/News/Emergency_Orders/Emergency_Orders/) Douglas County is taking the following actions as proactive measures to safeguard the citizens of Douglas County against health threats related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to reduce public gatherings and promote social distancing.

The Board of County Commissioners and other public bodies such as the Planning Commission will be conducting their future meetings electronically to reduce social gatherings and interpersonal contact. Consequently, there will be no physical location designated for future Board meetings where members of the public are allowed to attend and participate in-person. Copies of the agenda will no longer be posted at a physical location. Please review the following ways to access meeting materials or to participate in upcoming board meetings.

Meeting materials will be posted on the following websites:
