Churchill County

 

 

Churchill County, Nevada, located an hour east of Reno, is approaching a population of 25,000 and continues to grow at a measured pace in light of the economic expansion of Northern Nevada.  The local economy is supported by a strong agriculture industry that includes alfalfa, corn, dairies, and a growing local produce sector. Fallon Naval Air Station -- the Navy's "aircraft carrier in the desert" employs a large sector of the community between navy and civilian personnel. County Commissioners Pete Olsen, Bus Scharmann, and Carl Erquiaga represent the community, while County Manager Jim Barbee conducts the daily administrative duties.  Recently hired, Anne McMillin serves as the Public Information Officer and can be reached at 775-423-2266.
