GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A pay dispute is again delaying approval of a plan to spend $2.5 million to install 500 more pedestrian safety posts along Las Vegas Strip sidewalks.

A planned Tuesday vote by the Clark County Commission was pushed back to Feb. 6 to allow staff members to investigate a Nevada Foundation for Fair Contracting report that iron workers were underpaid during work installing 800 barriers last year.

A representative from project contractor Muller Construction told commissioners there is no dispute, and that employees had been paid more than the minimum rate during the initial $5 million project.

The barriers, called bollards, are 4 feet tall and are anchored by underground steel frames.

County officials say the posts can stop a flatbed truck traveling 55 mph.
