Six Nevada mayors will meet with Governor Brian Sandoval today, in an effort to prevent state officials from dipping into local government reserves to balance the budget.

At his weekly news conference yesterday, Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman said he will ask the Governor and legislative leaders to consider a property tax increase to help reduce the state’s deficit. Goodman says he doesn’t prefer to raise taxes, but “sometimes you don’t have a choice.”

Sandoval ran on a promise of no new taxes to balance the budget.

    If CA Mayors recommend raising property taxes over taking money from local gov’t and then giving it to Government employees and benefits, I am all for dipping into local government reserves to balance the budget.

      Do opposite of what CA does and we will be just fine. Balance budget anyway possible. Cut Cut Cut. Live within means
