- Commission Expansion
THERE ARE THREE SEATS UP FOR ELECTION ON NOVEMBER 8. THIS INCLUDES DISTRICTS 1, 4 & 5.
The Reno County Commission approved a Resolution that allowed voters to decide whether to have five (5) elected commissioners compared with the current three (3) member governing body. Voters approved the expansion question in the November 2, 2021 election.
Two of the current commissioners will remain in office (Districts 2 & 3), while the Commissioner for District 1 has chosen not to run for re-election. An additional two commissioners will be elected by residents of the two new districts (Districts 4 & 5).
