North Las Vegas officials have called a special City Council meeting for citizens to discuss the city’s future.
The council will hold a “Citizen Summit” at the North Las Vegas Public Library this week. The cash-strapped city is asking city residents for input and ideas for the city in the coming year.
The city will face a $15.5 million budget gap in the coming 2013 fiscal year, which is a little more than half of the previous year’s $30.3 million deficit. City officials have made it clear that concessions from police and fire unions will be needed to close the future budget gap.
The special meetings will be Monday and Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in the community room of the library at 2300 Civic Center Dr. Another special meeting, Dec. 5, will take place in the same room at 4:30 p.m. The agenda for that meeting states the city will discuss city priorities and strategic planning.
