Laughlin Residents Vote on Incorporation
Laughlin Residents Vote on Incorporation

Listen
AIR DATE: April 3, 2012

In June residents of Laughlin will vote on whether they want to become their own city. Laughlin is currently unincorporated but residents and some leaders in the town have lobbied to become incorporated so they can control future economic development. The Nevada Legislative Commission recently voted to allow Laughlin residents the vote on incorporation. The Clark County Commission previously rejected an incorporation vote in Laughlin after a study showed the city would not be financially viable. A state law passed in the 2011 legislature required Clark County or the Legislative Commission to evaluate whether or not Laughlin could support itself financially. We talk with the Laughlin Constable about why becoming a city is a good idea.
