(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Metro’s Fiscal Affairs Committee has voted to use a reserve fund for part of the police department’s new budget.   The panel will use 44-million-dollars from an 84-million-dollar fund in an effort to use less money from Clark County and the city of Las Vegas, which jointly funds Metro. 

Sheriff Doug Gillespie says he’s glad his department can be part of the budget solution, but warns it’s reserves can’t continue to be tapped.

The new police budget that goes into effect July 1st will be just over 500-million-dollars.  Nearly 200 vacant positions in the department have been eliminated.
