Following an order by Governor Steve Sisolak extending all licenses and permits by the State or by local jurisdictions, the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office has announced that it is closing its substations to the public, effective at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 1.
Under Sisolak’s order, all licenses and permits issued by the State or by local jurisdictions that are set to expire during the declared state of emergency have been extended 90 days, either from their current expiration date or 90 days after the state of emergency is lifted, whichever is later.
Sheriff Frank Hunewill said any new or renewal of Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) applications will be postponed for 30 days or until the Sheriff has identified a low risk of COVID-19 exposure to Sheriff’s Office employees.
Also, any person whose annual business license renewal fee is due during the declaration of emergency will have a 60-day grace period after the end of the state of emergency to file, renew and pay their dues. Penalties on these licenses will not accrue for late payment.
