Listen
AIR DATE: January 26, 2010

Former Clark County Manager Thom Reilly joins us to talk about the challenges local governments are facing in the recession. We discuss how the cost of wages, benefits and union contracts are affecting services on the county and city level and how local governments are tackling these problems as tax revenues continue to decline.

Will KNPR have another guest that has a differing opinion? While much has been said addressing the compensation/benefits providied to members of bargaining units, nothing of note has been said regarding the pay and benefits of the management employees. We look forward to a complete and unbiased discussion.

I would be interested to know how many 10's of millions of dollars of SNPLMA funds have been allocated for trails around LV and how much is unspent.
