RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Open Washoe County, an online program for citizen input and feedback, is asking residents for their opinion on the funding of the Reno Aces’ baseball stadium.

The open forum is accessible through the Washoe County website at www.washoecounty.us/openwashoe and also by texting the word ‘subscribe’ to (775) 835-4540. Individuals can make comments, suggestions and read what other community members are saying about a particular issue.

On April 9, 2013, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) will consider a request by SK Baseball (SKB) that Washoe County help keep Reno Aces baseball in the community by providing assistance in restructuring the long-term debt for the construction of the Reno Aces’ baseball stadium.

In January, the City of Reno approved a new agreement that would provide $30 million over 30 years to replace an original commitment based on property tax revenues that did not meet expectations due to the economic downturn. SKB’s request is that the County assist in completing the restructuring of the debt by providing up to $500,000 a year for 30 years.

Open Washoe County asks the question: In general, to what extent do you agree or disagree that Washoe County government should provide financial assistance to help keep Reno Aces baseball in our community?
