Washoe County commissioners are taking steps to contain Lemmon Valley’s Swan Lake to a specified boundary, although county staff have cautioned that a solution to flooding in that area hasn’t been identified and funding questions remain. To learn more, KUNR’s News Director Michelle Billman spoke to Bob Conrad, the publisher of ThisisReno, to learn more about this issue.

So far, Washoe County has spent just over $3 million to clean up after historic flooding during the winter, and another $6 million in repair and capital improvement costs still remain to be covered. Our News Director Michelle Billman breaks down the situation with contributor Bob Conrad of ThisisReno.

Tensions ran high at O'Brien Middle School Wednesday night, as more than 100 Lemmon Valley residents voiced their anger at Washoe County for what they say was an inadequate response to this year's flooding. Reno Public Radio's Noah Glick reports.

Crews continue to work on flood mitigation and recovery in Lemmon Valley more than two months after the first round of severe storms hit the region.

Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick reports that while progress is being made, many residents are upset with what they say has been a slow response.

Reno City Council could vote Wednesday on annexing a slice of Lemmon Valley being eyed for development. Michelle Billman reports the decision raises larger questions among North Valleys residents about how growth is impacting their community.

City Council has already unanimously approved an ordinance introduction for the annexation. The owner says the land would be ideal for housing, which has some Lemmon Valley residents worried, including Doug Robertson who spoke up at the last council meeting.
