Churchill County is hosting a retirement/farewell gathering for former County Commissioner Bus Scharmann on Wednesday, June 16 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Lariat Courtyard on the south end of the Oats Park Art Center, 151 East Park Street.
All who wish to offer words of congratulations and thanks to Bus for his eight years of community service as a commissioner are welcome to attend. RSVPs are requested to Julie at (775)423-5136 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 11.
In his role on the Board of Commissioners, Scharmann has served on several local and regional committees and boards including CC Communications, Churchill Area Regional Transportation, Central Nevada Regional Water Authority, Highway Commission, Hospital Board, Liquor Board, Parks & Recreation Commission, Regional Transportation Commission, Senior Citizens Coalition and the Western Nevada Development District.
Some of the accomplishments the Board of Commissioners made during his time serving include the county’s response to COVID-19, the Big Dig of 2017 (saving the community from flooding) and the openings of the William N. Pennington Life Center and the County Law Enforcement Center.
This event was originally planned for early 2021 but was delayed until COVID restrictions were eased.
