New Las Vegas Councilman Beers Votes Against F Street Project
(Las Vegas, NV) — The Las Vegas city council has approved nearly nine-million-dollars in bonds for a controversial road project.
The money will be used to reopen F Street, which was shut down as part of the I-15 widening project. Supporters say the closure has hindered access for residents of the African-American community near downtown Vegas.
New city council member Bob Beers joined fellow councilman Bob Coffin in voting against the bonds.
