Hello Everyone Happy Summer!

Hope you all are enjoying the beautiful months and the swimming pools in Battle Mountain and Austin. Both are located next to our lovely county parks. We now have a new dog park located in Lion’s Park as a special place where the dogs and their families can run, romp and socialize. Please use proper dog etiquette when visiting.

The downside again this year has been the tragic fires and threat of fires which threaten our land, forests, structures, homes, domestic animals and wildlife. Fortunately we haven’t had the loss of lives, but our firefighters and first responders are in harm’s way daily. Special prayers are with them all.

Primary is over and on to the General! 2018 is truly quite an exciting election year! So often people do not realize the true importance of their vote in the mid-term elections. The more local the race, the more ability that person has to represent you effectively. Both the State and the County have many new names and faces on the ballot. Please encourage all your friends and family to take the time to study the issues and your candidates; make sure their values represent yours

As we go forward, the county still faces many challenges including continuing state and federal mandates, safety and health issues and even our gaps in internet access and population decline. I am confident that together our commissioners will bring their varied strengths and views to continue serving the residents of Lander County at the highest level. My door is always open for your comments and questions on County issues. Thank You.

Yours in service,
Patsy Ann
