RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The Ice Bucket Challenge that has been sweeping the nation to raise awareness and money for ALS has made its way into the Reno City Council.

Reno City Manager Andrew Clinger was the one who challenged the City Council. All seven members dropped a bucket of ice cold water on their heads, except for Mayor Bob Cashell. He got a bucket of confetti, because of his open heart surgery.

"I think it's very important to help the foundation with ALS and help them, help people, help them raise money," said Mayor Cashell. "They've raised a lot of money, but we want to raise some more money in Nevada for people with ALS."

The Reno City Council challenged the Washoe County Commissioners and the Sparks City Council, including Mayor Geno Martini. They have 24 hours to complete the challenge.

We are in the middle of a drought, mandatory watering conservation, the Truckee is lower than ever in a long time and they are wasting water on the ground?
