Yerington, NV - The Associated Press and other news outlets have mistakenly reported that Lyon County is considering rescinding the naming of the Donald J. Trump Justice Complex. The Lyon County Board of Commissioners has not sought an agenda item for this. February 4, 2022 the County Managers Office issued a media release explaining that the Board of Commissioners were asked to take action on a resolution that provided policy and direction for naming buildings, parks, etc.
The resolution was requested by Commissioner Rob Jacobson after the Donald. J. Trump Justice Complex action item was approved in August 2021. Commissioner Jacobson was seeking clear direction for the future. The Board agreed with the resolution concept but requested clarifications. Commissioner Henderson requested staff to determine if the policy could require a super-majority vote (4/5) instead of a simple majority (3/2). Commissioner Keller requested clearer language on the role of citizen advisory boards as well as public input. This resolution has nothing to do with renaming the Donald J. Trump Justice Complex.
