  • Winnemucca plans sewer treatment plant expansion
    The design phase of the city’s plan to build a new sewage treatment plant has been nearly completed, but there’s still a great deal to be done. The project’s total price tag is expected to come in at around $29 million which will be “by far, the most expensive public works project that the city has ever undertaken,” said city manager/engineer Steve West. The city is required to relocate its existing wastewater treatment facility out of the Humboldt River flood plain in order to satisfy the requirements of the Federal Clean Water Act.

  • How to tell if Congress  is working again
    There have been encouraging signs that the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill wants to make Congress function again.

Perhaps most important, they’ve acknowledged that Congress has many bad habits, and insist that they want to restore a healthy legislative process.
