North Las Vegas Mayor Shari Buck will be holding a community meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday to discuss the current status and future of North Las Vegas.
The meeting, which is open to all residents of North Las Vegas, will be held at Aliante Station in the Tucson room. The city recently enforced a set of budget cuts that included shutting down the North Las Vegas Detention Center to help close a budget deficit exceeding $30 million.
Buck will discuss with residents how the city is working to meet the goals of its strategic plan and how it plans to move forward the rest of the year, a North Las Vegas press release said.
