Residents can also take an online survey at http://www.ivgidordinance7.com through Sept. 30 to offer feedback on the laws to help the district determine if changes are needed.

Skeletal remains found east of Lake Tahoe
Human bones found near the Douglas-Carson line by an inmate work crew are being examined to determine a cause of death for the person.
Sheriff Ron Pierini said the Douglas County Sheriff's Office received a call from Northern Nevada Correction Center around noon Monday a crew doing conservation work found the remains.
The bones were located about 300 yards north of Highway 50 near the top of Spooner Summit, between the Tahoe Rim Trail and Kings Canyon Road in a remote wooded area, Sheriff's Spokesman Sgt. Pat Brooks said.
Investigators gathered as many of the remains as they could find and sent them to the Washoe County Medical Examiner.
Pierini said the bones had been spread out by animals, and appear to be from someone who died between six months and a year ago.
He said investigators are contacting other agencies to find out if someone was reported missing in the Lake Tahoe area.
"The bones are at the Washoe Medical Examiner to see if we can find a cause of death," Pierini said. "He'll help us with DNA, so we can find out who this person is.
"The question is whether it is a homicide, a suicide or a natural death. We should determine that fairly soon."
