The Donald J. Trump Justice Complex
The Associated Press reported, “About 50 people attended the formal dedication of the Donald J. Trump Justice Complex in Yerington on Saturday, Lyon County Manager Jeff Page said. The complex, which opened in 2013, houses the sheriff’s office, jail, Third Judicial District Court and Walker River Justice Court.”
“The commissioners approved the new name for the justice complex on a 3-2 vote in August,” AP noted. “They originally planned to rename a road in Dayton after Trump but dropped that idea because some residences and businesses would have had to change their address.
“The Lyon County Commission discussed a resolution last week that could result in changes in procedures for naming county buildings, parks and other facilities in the future, but that did not affect names already approved, including the Trump complex, Page said,” the reported added.

In July, according to The Hill, “The Lyon County Board of County Commissioners voted to rename a road ‘Pres. Trump Way’ after the former president, which garnered mixed responses from residents, including one who reportedly said at the time that there is ‘a better use of county funds than renaming a street for someone so polarizing and divisive.”

“In a resolution last week, the Lyon County Commission reportedly discussed a possibility of changing the process for renaming county facilities in the future,” the Hill added “However, currently approved names will not be affected.”
Lyon County stated the “resolution has nothing to do with renaming the Donald J. Trump Justice Complex.”
