The Alamo Town Board met July 5. In public comment, after discussing possible sites for the splash pad, the county informed Friends of Pahranagat Valley that they can’t remove the volleyball court or skateboard half pipe since it is part of the Southern Nevada Public Lands Act (SNPLA) grant agreement with verbiage stating that the volleyball court and skateboard ramp in the park “must be maintained in perpetuity.”

After showing a new exhibit of a different option for building the splash pad at the park, the town board suggested another possible site – north of the ambulance barn and east of the brown concession stand by the pavilion. The suggestion was noted and will be brought up to the Friends of Pahranagat Valley to come to a decision.

The Lincoln County Workforce was at the meeting to discuss summer help. They provide young adults and youth in the county who qualify for the program the opportunity to gain work experience of 320 hours. The Alamo Town Board approved the motion to hire a young adult to work 100 hours this summer. The board also approved the motion to hire one more worker through the Lincoln County Workforce.

Those interested in work experience opportunities can contact LC Workforce at (775) 726-3800.

The students that were responsible for the spray painting last year wrote apology letters, which were read out loud at the meeting.

The board plans to also look into the SNPLA fund that has money reserved for maintenance of the Alamo Children’s Park.
