Health District board members: Reconsider fee increases

Two members of the Southern Nevada Health District board want the board to reconsider fee increases for vaccinations and other services that were approved the board's June 24 meeting.

Kathleen Boutin, a Henderson city councilwoman, and Steve Ross, a Las Vegas city councilman, made the joint request to the Health District administrators today.

Additionally, Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak has scheduled the Board of County Commissioners to collect more information about funding sources, contracts and pay schedules for public agencies that have relationships with the county. One of those agencies is the Health District, but his request also includes the Las Vegas Valley Water District, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Clark County Fire Department, the Department of Aviation, Water Reclamation District, Clean Water Coalition, Southern Nevada Water Authority, Regional Transportation Commission, Las Vegas Convention and Visitor's Authority, University Medical Center, the court system and the Regional Flood Control District.

Sisolak said the examination is the result of the salary increases approved by the Health District a week ago.

"I think it's important to know that all employees are being treated equally and all employees, regardless of the management structure they are under, are treated the same," he said.

The item is scheduled to be heard at the County Commission's July 20 meeting.
