    Mayor Goodman: Since Las Vegas hosts a major Star Trek Convention each year, I was wondering what plans are in the immediate works to reopen the Star Trek Experience that used to be at the LV Hilton? The previous Mayor Goodman had talked about opening it downtown. What are your thoughts as this would also create jobs?

    Re the zappos deal. I understand the discount was given to the Resort Gaming Group and that they have not closed on the building. Why did the City not do more due diligence in seeking more bids from developers?
