New Ordinance Aimed at Cleaning up Litter on the Strip
AIR DATE: July 26, 2012
The Clark County Commission wants to clean up litter from handbillers on the Strip. To do that, commissioners introduced a new ordinance last week that would force handbill distributors to clean up after themselves within a certain radius of their work area. The County Commission in recent months has introduced numerous ordinances aimed at cleaning up the Strip. In March the commission passed a ban on pets on the Strip during certain hours of the day. We talk with Clark County Commissioner, Chris Giunchigliani about the County Commission's continuing efforts to clean up Las Vegas Boulevard.

Please please please let water vendors sell water on the Strip. In this hard economy licensing and regulating these types of business will generate and also create job. Eyob. Tadesse –Jul 25, 2012 09:27:50 AM
Think out of the "government is always good" box: if the sidewalks were private property (owned by the casinos), you can bet they'd be clean and free of hand-billers, and all at no cost to the taxpayer. In contrast, "public" properties will necessarily always be examples of "the tragedy of the commons".Tom Hurst –Jul 24, 2012 12:51:51 PM
