Clark County Board of Developmental Disabilities Seeks Levy Approval

The Clark County Board of Developmental Disabilities is asking voters to approve an 8-year, additional levy on Election Day.

The board had the same issue rejected last November. In 2012, voters handed the board its first levy defeat since 1967.

"If we are unsuccessful in passing our levy, we will have to cut some of the folks that we currently are serving," says Jennifer Rousculp, the Board Superintendent. She says cuts would hit home care services and self-sufficiency programs for the developmentally disabled.

Clark County Voters Approve Parks Levy

Clark County voters approved a sixth-tenths mill parks levy on Tuesday, as unofficial results show the levy passed with 57% of the vote.

The levy was an attempt to generate money to fund maintenance of green space, parks and bike trails throughout Clark County.  The parks levy will generate annually $1 million for the National Trail and Parks Recreation District and the Clark County Parks District, the two groups responsible for the maintenance of the parks in Clark County.

The levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 home $21 per year.
