By adding the "Odor Nuisance" ordinance to the nuisance section of the Reno Municipal Code, officers from the Code Enforcement Division could investigate complaints charged against businesses due to smells.

The chapter will address any smell from a business considered as an odor nuisance. This could range from anything that impacts the quality of life, safety or what people consider as offensive.

Eight active cannabis cultivation facilities in Reno could be impacted if the proposal passes. City officials say the ordinance would not affect residences.

The council accepted the staff report Wednesday night but did not take any action. A decision on this chapter will be made in future meetings.
