The Searchlight TAB is an important advisory and liaison function relaying concerns and other important information between unincorporated towns and Clark County government. The Searchlight TAB holds regular public meetings to discuss and make recommendations on long-term planning, zoning changes, public works projects, County programs and ordinances that may affect the town.
