“More Cops” Vote Delayed By County Commission

(Las Vegas, NV) The Clark County commission decided to delay a vote to raise the sales tax rate to pay for officers in Clark County.

The commission voted 6-1 after Commissioner Susan Brager stated she still had questions about the proposed sales tax increase. Tom Collins is the only commissioner who was in favor of voting on the proposal Tuesday.

The proposed increase would raise the sales tax rate in Clark County from 8.10 percent to 8.25 percent.

Citizens still had the ability to speak about the issue and Sheriff Doug Gillespie is scheduled to speak as well.

The money also would pay for hiring about 100 officers. However, because about 100 officers routinely leave for various reasons each year.

There is no scheduled date for a vote.
