Simonton:No. Just Connie Sartain and myself are the only two here.
Jones:Ms. Golden? Have we received any written public comment to the Division on the proposed rate?
Golden:No, we have not.
Chair:Oh, Rick, certainly.
Wilkening:Just, it’s kind of interesting. I am going to be retiring next year as a business representative of the Carpenter’s and my wife and I are opening up a business. So it’s going to be kind of like a change for me. So I don’t mind lowering it a little bit more but I just wanted to . . . The 1.38 has been doing very well.
Jones:Mr. Wilkening, as you will be a new employer, you will be subject to the new employer rate of 2.95% for the first three years of operation.
Wilkening:I’ll keep that in mind. Thank you so much, Cynthia.
Chair:Any other discussion, comments, by members of the Council? Hearing none, all those in favor of the motion to adopt the average tax rate of 1.38 signify by saying Aye.
Chair:Those opposed? Hearing none. It’s been passed unanimously.
Jones:Well, thank you, Council. I appreciate your participating and your recommendation, which I will take under consideration for the adoption of the regulation during the November 16th hearing. I’d also like to make one other public announcement. On Wednesday at 9:00 a.m., we are having the grand opening dedication of our new Southern Nevada Headquarters on St. Louis Street in Las Vegas. The building will be dedicated to a previous Employment Security Division Executive Director, Stanley P. Jones. And if you happen to be in Southern Nevada on that day, I would encourage you to attend. Thank you.
