North Las Vegas Mayor Shari Buck speaks during the North Las Vegas State of the City address at Texas Station on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012.

North Las Vegas Mayor Shari Buck will be holding a community meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday to discuss the current status and future of North Las Vegas.

The meeting, which is open to all residents of North Las Vegas, will be held at Aliante Station in the Tucson room. The city recently enforced a set of budget cuts that included shutting down the North Las Vegas Detention Center to help close a budget deficit exceeding $30 million.

Buck will discuss with residents how the city is working to meet the goals of its strategic plan and how it plans to move forward the rest of the year, a North Las Vegas press release said.

  1. The only problem with the 'strategic plan' of NLV is that is leaves the city a wreck. These people (the politicians running the city) have mismanaged and overspent and now leave us with a bankrupt, non-function city. This meeting needs to more closely resemble the towns people carrying torches and chasing the 'Frankensteinesque' monster out of town, instead of giving support.

    I mean Really, North Las Vegas, you are broke, and your strategic plan is to spin this WHOLE situation any way possible to keep your political careers from spinning down the toilet drain, THAT is the 'Strategic Plan'.

  2. Everybody admits NLV is broke. So now what, Dunton? Abandon ship? How about some ideas on how to move forward?

  3. Roslenda,

    I am not one of elected officials of the City. I am not a business major nor a lawyer so would not qualify to be elected. I have no idea how the City will correct itself. I know things have been out of whack in this town for a LONG TIME, but no one wanted to address them then. The first thing the City can do is to evaluate their CIP plan for the 2014-2016 period, quit spending millions on landscaping for a future plan that is now 20 years from fruition. The next thing they did right was closing the jail down. How many jails do we need in a 100+ square mile area? Other municipalities that were in trouble opted to NOT SPEND 100K for fireworks..not NLV....those are just a few items. Is not the residents fo the City is the MANAGEMENT of the city that has placed us where we are today.........
