Clark County Rethinks Redevelopment

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Clark County commissioners have dissolved the county's redevelopment program and reallocated millions of dollars to other uses.

Officials say the Tuesday action freed $37 million for schools, University Medical Center, the fire department and other county services.

The state will receive $2.5 million from the fund, plus $11 million a year in tax revenue from properties in former redevelopment areas.

Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani (jun-killy-AH'-nee) proposed shelving the redevelopment program. She asked colleagues for a June 2 review of how the money has been allocated.

The Clark County School District would get $12 million for operating costs and $2.28 million to help pay debt.

Some of the money will go to a state sustainability center, libraries, Family Court, emergency communications and medical care for the poor.
