An Armenian Genocide Memorial Monument was dedicated at Clark County’s Sunset Park on Nov. 20. The monument project is the initiative of the Armenian-American Cultural Society (AACS) of Las Vegas, with the participation of all Las Vegas Armenian churches and organizations and approval of the Clark County Commission. The monument pays tribute to the estimated 1.5 million Armenians who were killed by the Ottoman Turks between 1915 and 1923.

The responsibility for this multi-faceted service delivery organization is borne by the seven-member County Commission, elected from geographic districts on a partisan basis for staggered four-year terms. County commissioners biennially elect a chairman who serves as the Commission's presiding officer. The Commission, in turn, hires a county manager who is responsible for the administrative operations of County government. Clark County commissioners serve as "ex-officio" as the governing bodies of the Las Vegas Valley Water District, Clark County Water Reclamation District, University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, Big Bend and Kyle Canyon water districts, and the Clark County Liquor and Gaming Licensing Board. The Commission's regular meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 9:05 a.m. and each third Tuesday of the month at 9 a.m. in the Clark County Commission Chambers, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway. The Commission meets as the Zoning Board on the following Wednesdays at 9 a.m.
