RENO, NV - Twenty-seven people are hoping to fill four seats on the Reno City Council. Councilmember Jessica Sferrazza said the new councilmembers will decide a lot of issues that impact you.
"A lot of those neighborhood issues, the road through Rosewood Lakes.... the flood control project," she said. The improvements to midtown Reno and the Moana Stadium are other issues the new councilmembers will consider.
City Manager Andrew Clinger said the councilmembers will still face challenges. "I think the biggest issue continues to be the economy and revitalization of Reno," Clinger said.
Clinger said there's slow economic growth happening in Reno. He added the last budget was balanced "without any layoffs."
The primary will help narrow down the field of candidates. Early voting continues through Friday. Election day is Tuesday.
