NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — The acting top administrator of a financially strapped southern Nevada city is leaving to take a similar post in a small beach town in the Florida Panhandle.
North Las Vegas officials say Maryann Ustick has accepted the city manager position in Destin, Fla.
The Las Vegas Sun reports (http://bit.ly/rtwfes) that Destin has about 12,000 residents and Ustick previously worked as a city official in nearby Pensacola, Fla.
North Las Vegas has more than 210,000 residents. It was among the fastest-growing cities in the nation last decade.
It’s now struggling with a multimillion-dollar budget shortfall and faces a possible financial takeover by the state.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/nG6DPq ) that Ustick is latest executive staff member to leave the city.
The city attorney and utilities chief also left recently.
