NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. - North Las Vegas Mayor Shari Buck is assuring residents safety is still a top priority as the city continues to balance its budget.
"Today, we have a balanced budget, and we meet the safety needs of our residents, and we're moving forward to continue to provide for you a great quality of life," she told a packed crowd at a community meeting at Aliante Station Wednesday night. "Right now, no police or firefighter has been laid off."
The city faced a $33 million budget gap this fiscal year. Attendees at the meeting said they were happy about the message they heard.
"I've lived in many places. I'm happy with North Las Vegas. I hope we keep improving," said North Las Vegas resident Ada McArthur.
