With budget cuts set to start Sunday and city offices closed on Friday, Thursday could be the last day for 108 city of North Las Vegas employees
The cash-strapped city is trying to fill a $30 million budget deficit. Beginning July 1, city services will be streamlined. There will be cutbacks in library and recreation center hours, elimination of some utility maintenance jobs and enforced unpaid time off. City Manager Tim Hacker says the tough decisions are necessary to build a stronger foundation for the future.
The bulk of the layoffs will come from corrections employees. In all, 93 jobs from the correction’s department will be eliminated. North Las Vegas closed its detention center and is now renting a separate wing of the Las Vegas City Jail.
