Las Vegas, NV – Las Vegas tourism department officials said Friday that there is a possibility that the city’s tourism board could lose its charter in January 2019 if the tourism industry remains stagnant.
The board is a quasi-independent body of workers, consultants and experts who provide advice and recommendations to the city of Las Vegas.
The city is scheduled to vote on the charter proposal on January 15.
If the charter is approved, the Las Vegas Tourism Department will become the sole employer of local government.
The charter proposal is scheduled for a vote on January 29.
The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce said Friday afternoon that it has been in contact with the city to discuss the charter.
It has not been received by the city, but said the city would have to do a number of things to be able to take its charter and apply it for federal funds.
The chamber said it has received a number by the end of the week.
