Washoe County Commissioners Meeting (June 16, 2015)

The text below is from the Washoe County website, regarding the recent Washoe County Commissioners meeting.  Our county is the recipient of some very generous and interesting donations!

Reno, Nevada. June 16, 2015. The following report highlights several important agenda items from the Washoe County Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday, June 16, 2015. Videos of County Commission meetings are replayed regularly on WCTV (Charter Ch. 193). You may also watch videos-on-demand online.

The Board of County Commissioners proclaimed June 2015 as Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month and June 21, 2015 as The Longest Day. The goal of the proclamation is to provide information about challenges people with dementia or Alzheimer’s and their caretakers deal with on a daily basis. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death impacting the lives of millions of people. The Alzheimer’s Association continues to work hard to get rid of Alzheimer’s through advanced research and reduce the risk of dementia through promotion of brain health.

Commissioner Vaughn Hartung (District 4) said, “The tsunami surrounding Alzheimer’s disease is coming as this continues to affect more and more people every day.  We need to be prepared as a community to support it.”

To help raise awareness about a disease so many researchers are working toward coming up with a cure for, the Board asks the public to wear purple in June for all those affected by Alzheimer’s.

The Board also proclaimed the following:

The Board accepted the following donations:

Pictures from today’s proclamations will be posted online to Washoe County’s photo gallery.
