RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The controversial Reno City Council decision to allow the University of Nevada to rezone part of its farmland is being pushed back.
On March 27, the Council approved the rezoning 4-2, but it needs a second vote to be finalized.
Mayor Bob Cashell decided to push the vote back to May 8, at the request of Councilwoman Sharon Zadra who couldn't be at today's meeting.
Councilwoman Jenny Brekhus moved to overrule that decision, pushing for a vote today.
Councilman Oscar Delgado seconded.
It didn't carry, so another motion to approve delaying the item was made and approved 3-2, with Councilwoman Hilary Schieve abstaining because of a personal conflict.
However the council needs four votes to pass an item, so it was reconsidered, re-motioned and re-voted. Delgado changed his vote and it carried 4-1.
The University of Nevada farm rezoning request is set to be on the city council agenda on May 8.
