North Vegas Jail Set To Close

(North Las Vegas, NV)  —  Facing a deadline to balance its budget, the city of North Las Vegas plans to close its jail.

KLAS-TV reports the city is working out a deal to move 170 inmates from the North Las Vegas Detention Center to the Las Vegas city jail.

The move would save about 12-million dollars a year.  City manager Tim Hacker says about 100 staff members will be laid off.  If the deal goes through, the first pink slips could go out early next month.
