The newsletter for Commission District D looks a little different this month. You will notice that the commissioner's picture and name have been omitted, which is the County's practice for those who file to run for election to public office. But the District D office will continue to provide a quarterly newsletter so that you have access to information about what is going on throughout Clark County and in your respective neighborhood.
Hello District D,
Welcome to summer and the hot temperatures that we all expect. Be careful to drink lots of water and to travel with a few bottles of water no matter where you are going. We've included some information in this issue of the newsletter to help you stay safe and healthy in the heat.
We are half way through the hot months, but there is still time to enjoy the fun that summer brings. The District D office would like to remind you to join us at Walnut Recreation Center for the annual Back-to-School fair. See the details below.
Last, I would like to invite you to take note of a few additions to Clark County. First, the new terminal at McCarran Airport; and second, the new multi-jurisdictional business license now available. These are just a couple of projects that we have completed to make Clark County a better place to live and do business.
As always, thank you for your continued interest in our community. And if the Distrtict D commission office can help with an issue you may have, please don't hesitate to send an email or call (702) 455-3500.

Commissioners Kick-off Pool Season with Safety Message
Now that summer is here, Clark County Commissioners want to remind residents of ways they can stay safe near swimming pools and in the desert heat.
Pool drownings are always a concern in our community, especially in the summer. Most drowning victims are 4 years old or younger. Pools, spas and hot tubs are required to be completely enclosed with access barriers of at least five feet. Gates in the fence must be self-closing and self-latching. Clark County’s Fire and Building departments are sponsors of the Health District’s annual ABC&D’s of Drowning Prevention campaign. Safety tips include:
- Always assign a designated child watcher when children are near any pool or body of water.
- Close and lock all doors, windows and gates leading to pools when not in use.
- Keep a phone near the pool to ensure children are not left unattended if the phone rings.
- Never swim when thunder or lightening are present. Never dive into unfamiliar or shallow bodies of water.
Heat can pose serious health risks to anyone in our region, especially children, the elderly and people with poor circulation and weight problems. Most heat disorders occur because victims have become dehydrated after spending too much time in the heat. To avoid heat-related health problems, drink more water than usual and seek shaded or cool areas during the hottest times of day.
Children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles. Temperatures in a car can rise to 120 degrees when outdoor temperatures are in the 90s. Pets also should have access to lots of shade and water when outdoors. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps and dizziness. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Listed below are important things to remember during the hottest months of the year:
- Drink water even if you don’t feel thirsty. Limit intake of alcoholic beverages, which contribute to dehydration.
- Always carry plenty of water with you and a mobile phone. You never know what might happen during the day that could keep you outdoors longer than anticipated.
- Dress for summer. Clothing that is loose, lightweight and light-colored reflects heat and sunlight.
- Use sunscreen with a high SPF to protect against sunburn and skin cancer.
- Look in on friends and family, especially the elderly who may need help adjusting to the heat.
- Limit errands and outdoor activities to before noon or in the evening to avoid being out during the hottest part of the day.
- Stay indoors as much as possible. If air conditioning is not available, stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine.
- Take frequent breaks rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas if you must work outdoors.
- Avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day. Get plenty of rest to allow your natural "cooling system" to work.
- Eat small, well-balanced meals and eat more often.
- Protect windows. Hang shades or draperies on windows that receive morning or afternoon sun. Outdoor awnings can reduce the heat entering the house by as much as 80 percent.
- Avoid extreme temperature changes. A cool shower immediately after coming in from hot temperatures can result in hypothermia, particularly for elderly and very young people.
- Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.
- Learn the symptoms of heat disorders and know how to give first aid.
- Listen to a NOAA Weather Radio for critical updates from the National Weather Service (NWS).

County Seeks Input from Businesses Via Online Survey
Clark County is seeking input from the business community on how to improve our services to help local businesses. Please take the time to fill out this survey so we can better assess how we do business.
Multi-jurisdictional Business License Now Available
Contractors no longer have to obtain multiple licenses to do business in Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas and Clark County.
The first phase of the multi-jurisdictional business license is now in effect, allowing contractors to obtain local licenses in one location – no traveling to each jurisdiction for separate business licenses. Applications and fees are now handled in one place and forwarded to the corresponding jurisdictions.
The multi-jurisdictional business license is a major effort among the government agencies that is more than a year in the making. The four jurisdictions worked closely with our state legislators to create Senate Bill 110. Passed during the 2011 Legislative Session, this bill required the entities to develop a multi-jurisdictional license for contractors by June 17, 2012. The new license had its soft launch on June 17 and has already seen several new contractors apply. So far, the process is running smoothly.
This massive undertaking required creating a central database that allows the jurisdictions to share business license data, and developing a process so that revenue can be transferred among the agencies. All 13,000 current contractor licenses across the four jurisdictions were also analyzed for this effort. It is estimated that at least 60 employees among the four jurisdictions worked on this effort at any given time.
The move simplifies business licensing for contractors, saving them time. Previously, a new contractor had to obtain business licenses from each jurisdiction he or she wanted to do business in. Separate renewals had to be paid each year to each entity the contractor carried a business license with, which were often due at different times. Now, existing contractors will only need one license and to mail their payment to one location when their licenses renew in November. The fees will be dispersed to the corresponding jurisdiction.
As the entities get through this initial phase, future phases may include consolidated business licenses for similar businesses that cross jurisdictional boundaries, such as landscapers, mobile car washes, and more.
Building Department Offers 90-Day Amnesty for Residential Construction Work Done Without Permits
The Clark County Building Department is encouraging homeowners to participate in a 90-day amnesty program that waives penalties on self-disclosed residential construction work done without permits.
The self-disclosure period begins July 1 and extends through Sept. 30, 2012. During the amnesty period, homeowners in unincorporated Clark County will be subject to paying normal fees for permits, inspections and plan reviews, but not penalties. Fees for residential-related construction range from $150 to $400, depending on the project. The Building Department’s Permit Application Center is located at 4701 W. Russell Road.
Building officials say the most common residential projects built on residential property without the necessary permits include garage conversions, room additions, patio covers and water heater installations.
“Building permits and inspections help ensure the safety of your home and your family, as well as protect your investment,” said Ron Lynn, the County’s Building Official and Building Department director. “Faulty installations can cause fires, flood damage and other hazards. Work done without permits may not be covered by insurance. You also could face costly repairs if and when you try to sell your home.”
The County Commission voted unanimously in June to adopt a resolution authorizing the 2012 temporary amnesty program. A similar program was approved in 2009.
Protect Your Family, Report Green Pools
The Clark County Commissioners are asking for the public’s help in the fight against green pools.
Green pools are breeding grounds for mosquitoes, which carry potentially serious diseases like the West Nile virus. The return of summer temperatures means neglected pools are turning greener faster, and giving mosquitoes ideal breeding areas.
The commissioners are asking the public to help fight this backyard blight by reporting green pools to local code enforcement agencies. Residents of unincorporated Clark County should report green pools by calling (702) 455-4191 or filing a complaint through the County website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov – enter the keywords “green pool” in the search box.
Since 2010, Clark County has drained more than 350 green pools, including more than 30 this month. Mosquito larvae thrive in warmer water, making the summer months the busiest time of the year for dealing with the problem. Mosquitoes can carry a number of diseases, although perhaps the most widely feared is the serious West Nile virus. There were 11 cases of the West Nile virus reported in Clark County last year after zero in 2010. Removing breeding areas for the mosquitoes is one of the best defenses against the spread of mosquito-borne diseases to people.
Special Nevada License Plate Honors Healthcare Professionals
Nevada is now offering a new specialty license plate called “Supporting Healthcare” to benefit transplant patients, and honor those who have dedicated their lives to the profession of caring about other’s health and wellbeing.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us in healthcare to unite, be it surgeons, nurses, or ancillary staff, and show our commitment to excellence in our profession,” UMC CEO Brian Brannman said.
The money generated from the specialty license plates will help fund transplant care in Nevada.
Across the country, more than 112,500 people are on a waiting list for an organ donation. Here in Nevada, 85 patients are on the waiting list for a kidney transplant.
“So far this year, the UMC Transplant Center has done 44 kidney transplants, that’s 44 more people who were able to go back home to their family and enjoy a healthy life again,” said UMC Transplant Surgeon Dr. John Ham.
The “Supporting Healthcare” license plate is available by going to any DMV office, or online at dmvnv.com. A photo of the actual plate is shown below.
“We hope that as Nevada drivers register their vehicles they will choose to support premier healthcare in Nevada and especially transplant patients who are going through the agonizing wait of wondering when they will come to the top of the transplant list,” said UMC Foundation President Harry Hagerty.
Twenty-five dollars from every “Supporting Healthcare” license plate that is purchased and twenty dollars from every registration renewal will help fund transplant care in our state. The “Supporting Healthcare” license plates are available to anyone wishing to support healthcare professionals, celebrate a patient who has been given a second chance, and honor those who have shared the ultimate gift.
Ground-Level Ozone Advisory In Effect Through September
An advisory for ozone pollution is now in effect through September in the Las Vegas Valley.
Clark County’s Department of Air Quality issued the advisory to cover the late spring and summer months when weather conditions and levels of pollutants can trigger a build up of ground-level ozone during afternoon hours. At ground level, ozone is a key ingredient of urban smog during the hottest months of the year. Sources that contribute to the formation of ozone pollution include automobile exhaust, regional wildfires and pollutants transported from other areas.
Air quality officials say the County is very close to exceeding a new standard for ozone that was adopted by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2008. Failure to meet the standard would result in new measures to reduce emissions that will incur costs.
“We meet the new health-based standard for ozone, but just barely,” said Lewis Wallenmeyer, Director of the County’s Department of Air Quality. “We need to remain vigilant in our efforts to reduce ozone pollution.”
Unhealthy doses of ground-level ozone can reduce lung function and worsen respiratory illnesses such as asthma or bronchitis. Exposure to ozone also can induce coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath even in healthy people. When ozone levels are elevated, officials advise everyone to limit strenuous outdoor activity. The following actions help reduce the formation of ground-level ozone:
- Fill up your gas tank after sunset.
- Plan errands so they can be done in one trip.
- Try not to spill gasoline when filling up, and don’t top off your gas tank. Keep your car well maintained.
- Use mass transit or carpool.
- Don’t idle your car engine unnecessarily.
- Walk or ride your bike whenever practical and safe.
- Turn off lights and electronics when not in use. Less fuel burned at power plants means cleaner air.
- Consider low-maintenance landscaping that uses less water and doesn’t require the use of gas-powered lawn tools to maintain.
Residents can sign up for free text and email advisories and air quality forecasts through the department’s EnviroFlash service at www.enviroflash.org. The service has more than 2,100 subscribers. Daily air quality reports and forecasts also are posted on the Department of Air Quality website. Five-day forecasts cover ozone as well as carbon monoxide and dust.
McCarran Terminal 3 Opens June 27
Aerial view of Terminal 3 at McCarran International Airport.
Whether you are flying out for a summer getaway or simply picking up an arriving friend or family member, County residents will notice some big changes at McCarran International Airport.
On June 27, the Clark County Department of Aviation opened McCarran’s impressive Terminal 3 expansion. Spanning nearly 2 million square feet, “T3” offers 14 new aircraft gates; a pair of security checkpoints with room for up to 31 screening lanes; 15 additional baggage claim carousels; a larger multi-airline lounge, new shops and restaurants; as well as state-of-the-art technology that will improve travelers’ experiences from ticketing all the way into their outbound aircraft.
The terminal’s debut also changes how locals use the airport. This summer, drivers will need to know which terminal houses their airline well before they approach McCarran to ensure they enter the correct roadway lanes leading to their desired location. Keep your eyes open for several new digital signs on streets leading to the airport that will help steer you to your flight’s proper location.
Terminal 3 will enable McCarran to handle more passengers, including international travelers who fly in directly from airports outside the United States. All international traffic will shift to T3 now that the facility is open. By the end of August, seven domestic carriers also will be based at Terminal 3: Alaska, Frontier, JetBlue, Virgin America, Sun Country, Hawaiian and United. All other domestic carriers will depart from Terminal 1.
The new facilities will ease congestion elsewhere at McCarran, which in recent years has welcomed more passengers than they were originally designed to accommodate. With the opening of T3, Terminal 2 on the north end of the airport will close, and eventually be demolished.
Construction on Terminal 3, the largest modern public works project in the state of Nevada, started in June 2007. The project employed 1,800 skilled workers at its peak. The facility features 245,904 cubic yards of concrete – nearly enough to pave a 4-foot-wide sidewalk from Las Vegas to Oklahoma City.
More information about Terminal 3 is available on McCarran’s website at www.McCarran.com or by viewing this video.
County Achieves Superior Bond Ratings
Clark County continues to have one of the highest bond ratings in the state of Nevada.
High bond ratings issued by Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s Investors Service, the world’s preeminent bond ratings agencies, mean governments pay less to finance debt. S&P maintained the County’s “AA+” rating, which is comparable with or above every government agency in the state, while Moody’s affirmed its similarly positive “Aa1” rating.
“We’ve had to make some tough cuts over the last few years and these ratings reflect strong fiscal management, which benefits our taxpayers,” said County Manager Don Burnette.
In making its determination, S&P cited the County’s “maintenance of strong reserves, which have been prudently managed, despite significant assessed value and corresponding tax revenue declines” as well as “strong financial policies and practices that have remained in place through economic cycles” and “moderate overall debt with reduced capital pressure as new development in the county has slowed significantly.”
Meanwhile, Moody’s said its “rating primarily reflects the County's favorable long-term credit characteristics that include a still large tax base and a narrowed but still satisfactory financial position despite recent revenue pressures that have been offset in part by expenditure adjustments implemented by management. Additionally, the rating reflects the County's notable financial flexibility that is supported by significant though diminished reserves available to support operations as well as consistently conservative budget practices. Lastly, the County's net direct debt burden remains modest.”
Moody’s said the County’s rating outlook remains “stable” and “primarily reflects nascent improvement in the County's cyclical economy that remains dependent on tourism-related activity. The County's tax base remains large compared to similarly-rated peers, and the rate of decline for property values continue to moderate from prior levels. Additionally, Moody's expects that the County's financial position will remain consistent with peers and benefit from the County's practice of managing operations with conservative budgetary practices. Lastly, it is anticipated that the County's debt profile will remain manageable.”
Moody’s said some challenges remain, citing “protracted housing market pressuring property values, though the pace of declines has slowed;” “continued budgetary challenges stemming from softness in economically sensitive revenues and an anticipated slow economic recovery;” and “reduced property tax levy potential amid assessed valuation (AV) declines, and potential narrowing of levy rate margin available under statutory limits.”
The County Commission in May approved a general fund budget of $1.2 million for the fiscal year starting July 1. The County’s total budget is $6.2 billion.
DMV Kiosks Allow Motorists to Beat Office Lines
The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles has released special printable maps that show locations of its popular self-service "DMV in a Box" kiosks at www.dmvnv.com/kiosk. Locations are also listed on the DMV’s iPhone application.
“Avoid the drive to a DMV and the lines inside by using a 'DMV in a Box' in your neighborhood,” said Director Bruce Breslow. “They’re fast, fun and, most importantly, convenient. There’s a kiosk near you.”
If you have lost your driver’s license or ID card, you can now order a duplicate at a kiosk and have it mailed to you. Kiosks can also renew your car registration and dispense the license plate decal on the spot. The other kiosk transactions are license and ID card renewals, driver history printouts and insurance suspension reinstatements.
There are 45 statewide "DMV in a Box" kiosks locations in DMV offices, AAA offices, supermarkets, convenience stores and university campuses.
Pedestrians and Motorists Urged to Exercise Caution
Summer is also an important time to remind the public about the need for pedestrian safety on streets and sidewalks.
During the first four months of 2012, there already have been 19 deadly pedestrian accidents. University Medical Center’s Trauma Center also has seen a significant increase in serious, nonfatal pedestrian accidents since 2010. (There were 194 pedestrian-vehicle accidents in 2010; 233 in 2011; and 86 so far this year.)
The statistics for children are especially alarming. In 2010, 26 children under the age of 15 were taken to UMC’s Trauma Center after being struck by a vehicle. This year, UMC’s Trauma Center has already seen 18 children who were struck by a vehicle.
The following are some safety tips for drivers and pedestrians:
- Don’t drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Don’t text or talk on a cell phone while driving.
- Be especially careful around playgrounds, community centers and pools, and at intersections. Anywhere two streets intersect the pedestrian has the right of way. There does not have to be a painted crosswalk.
- Always yield to pedestrians who are crossing streets.
- If you see a vehicle stopped in close proximity to a pedestrian sign, by law you cannot pass that vehicle until you fully understand why the car is stopped.
- Try to cross at intersections or marked mid-block crosswalks because this is where you have the right of way and drivers should expect to see you.
- Always look both ways before and while you are crossing the street.
- Try to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them. Do not assume that because you can see the driver, the driver can see you.
- Plan a safe walking route that uses sidewalks, and crosses as few streets as possible.
- Never allow children under the age of 10 to cross a street alone.
- Teach children to never run out into a street for a ball, a pet or any other reason.
- Don’t ever assume because you have right of way that vehicles will stop for you. You must stop at every edge (lane line) and make eye contact with the driver.
- When getting off a bus, walk to the nearest marked crosswalk or intersection before crossing the street.
- Keep looking as you cross the street, never think because one driver stopped for you any other car will.
- Wear bright or white clothing to help motorists see you, and if dressed in dark clothing assume no motorist will see you.
- Put all your belongings in a backpack or bag so you are not tempted to “dart” out to grab something that has gotten away from you.
LVMPD Participates in Digital Neighborhood Watch
