(North Las Vegas, NV)  —  Despite a tight budget, North Las Vegas is making sure there are plenty of firefighters working today.  The “Sun” says City Manager Tim Hacker has approved spending money from an overtime fund, so that there are up to 50 firefighters who can respond to calls on this July 4th holiday. 

A city spokeswoman says Hacker wants to make sure there are no fire station closures on a day when, quote, “all hands are needed on deck.”  North Vegas placed limits on overtime use to help close a budget gap of 33-million dollars.
