The Washoe County Board of Commissioners passed on Tuesday a resolution for a school improvement initiative that will appear on a ballot this fall. Our contributor Bob Conrad of This is Reno has the story.

Shaun Carey, who chaired a school infrastructure committee, made the case for the upcoming ballot measure which will raise sales tax to 8.3 percent, making it the highest in the state.
