Culinary Submits Petition Against New City Hall

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Culinary union officials say they submitted three times more signatures than needed to force a public vote on whether Las Vegas should build a new $250 million City Hall.

But Mayor Oscar Goodman says that even if voters reject the project in a June referendum, the seven-story building downtown might still be built.

Goodman says the city's got contracts with the developers, Forest City and LiveWork Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, the City Council has approved a site plan and has scheduled a Feb. 18 public hearing on financing the project.

The mayor says a new City Hall would spur the downtown economy. The union says it would be wasteful.

The city clerk has 20 days check the 14,439 names the union submitted to determine if 4,500 valid signatures were collected.
