Republicans look to unseat three incumbents after 14-year Democratic hold on Clark County Commission

The commission acts much like a city council — approving taxes, development plans and business permits, for example — in areas outside of a city’s boundaries. Critically, the commission oversees the Las Vegas Strip, the heart of Southern Nevada’s economy. Commissioners work with the city councils and various boards to tackle issues that span throughout the valley, such as water conservation, housing and public safety.

The council oversees how land is used in the city — a critical function as Southern Nevada’s population is expected to flourish while facing historic drought and cuts to the state’s allotment of Lake Mead. Council members vote on development plans, business licenses, property taxes and how to split its $814 million budget between public safety, community programs and other projects.

Getting a glimpse of career fields through a virtual reality lens is just one of the unique components of the Employ NV Youth Hub and Teen Zone located inside the West Charleston Library in Las Vegas. Clark County commissioners and various Nevada elected officials attended the hub’s grand opening ceremony earlier this month to discuss employment opportunities for young adults ages 16 to 24.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area considers raising fees

The Bureau of Land Management is proposing to add an extra fee of $2 for online and onsite reservations or $3 for phone reservations for the Red Rock Scenic Drive, campground and Calico Basin Core Area. Public comments for the proposed fees are accepted until July 22.

New citizens celebrate in condensed, socially distanced naturalization ceremony

On March 18, 2020, USCIS temporarily closed field offices, leaving thousands unable to receive their citizenship. For those who had a ceremony or interview scheduled, it was postponed for a possible future date. In order to continue naturalization ceremonies, the USCIS transitioned to virtual ceremonies, and fully in-person ceremonies are starting again, bringing joy to new citizens.
