October 25, 2009 Part 2
In part 2 of our continuing coverage, I asked Councilman Chaffin about the allegations from the small recall group of not responding to citizens concerns and complaints.
October 23, 2005 - Part 1
On October 9th a small group calling themselves Citizens Working 4 Fernley mounted a recall against Councilman Monte Martin.
There are a total of 1,780 registered voters in Ward 3. Only 153 total ballots were cast.
Robert Chase, a rumored hand picked candidate, was seated as councilman for Ward 3 with only 97 votes to his credit.
It was also reported that a number of residents in Ward 3 were unaware of that recall election.
Charles Lawson, an opinion writer in a local paper wrote
Unfortunately, the process doesn't allow for adequate noticing of all voters involved and has a relatively minuscule number of signers required on a petition for recall,
so everything combined made for a rather rude education for Mr. Martin and a wake-up notice for those who irritate the rowdy element.
The group has now set it's sites on Councilman Curt Chaffin of Ward 4.
According to the notice of intent, the group is calling for a recall because Mr. Chaffin
.. failed to provide adequate supervision and make proper inquires into the performance of the former treasurer
.. failed to provide adequate supervision over the former city manager
.. failed to respond to constituent concerns and complaints
.. supported mandatory trash for Fernley
.. supported the Pozzolin Mine within 400 feet of residential property
.. supported transferring water to Pyramid Lake to the detriment of Fernley farmers and ranchers.
In this series we will be talking in-depth with Mr. Chaffin and addressing all the issues and a allegations set forth by this group.

Firefighters at the North Lyon County Fire Protection District are the first responders to local incidents which include
and brush fires
and in recent years .. the flood in the early morning hours of January 2008
They spend many hours of training to remain in top shape in order to keep our community safe.
Firefighters carry an extra 72 pounds of gear when working an incident.
Over heating, exhaustion and dehydration can be more devastating to a firefighter that the fire itself.
A newly added silent helper to those brave men and women out in the field is a new specialized rehabilitation team to maintain health and safety for our firefighters during an incident
