Local governments to submit balanced budgets Tuesday
Now that they are finally balanced, our local governments will present their budgets to the state Tuesday. To get back in the black, Clark County, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson had to cut a total of $214 million.
The City of Las Vegas had to make deep cuts to get the job done. Council members approved a long list of cuts, including 200 jobs and brownouts for the fire department. All local governments say they are anticipating similar or higher shortfalls for the next fiscal year.
