Why is the Douglas County Appraiser's Office staff going to a meeting in Las Vegas today? Is it necessary, and are they taking their spouses? How much of our taxpayers' dollars are funding this fun weekend?
The county appraiser's office is not going to a meeting in Las Vegas, County Administrator Craig Weinaug said. Someone who has worked in the appraiser's office is quitting to become self-employed and is going to Las Vegas independently, Weinaug said. Also, County Appraiser Marion Johnson is president of the International Association of Assessing Officers. That position requires him to do considerable traveling, but his expenses are paid by the association.
