North Las Vegas Wastewater Treatment Plant in Limbo

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. - After years of construction and $250 million of taxpayer money, a wastewater treatment plant in North Las Vegas could be on hold. For the plant to be operational, the city needs to use a Clark County pipeline. County commissioners on Tuesday denied that access.

"I just don't see how this is going to work. First, I thought we could postpone things and work them out, and we're not seeing anything working out," Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins said. "Local governments throughout Clark County and the State of Nevada have had to make some tough choices."

If an agreement isn't reached between the county and city, the treatment plant could end up on a list of publicly funded projects that have either been stopped or scaled back. Those projects include a new $120 million jail that remains unopened, because it is too costly to operate.

I-Team: Former Utilities Chief Still Collecting a Paycheck

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Earlier this year, the City of North Las Vegas announced the departure of their utilities director. After nearly 10 years on the job, David Bereskin left for a position on the other side of the country. But instead of resigning his post, Bereskin is still on the payroll.

Bereskin left the city to manage the water system in Greenville, South Carolina. Instead of submitting his resignation, he continues to serve, at least on paper, as the city's utilities director.

He is one guy with two jobs, collecting two paychecks, while hundreds of former North Las Vegas workers are collecting unemployment.
