Clark County Commissioners set hearing date for assessment roll

July 21, 2018

LAUGHLIN — During the summer, things seem to slow down a bit but some news keeps churning, including that of the lagoon project.

The Clark County Board of Commissioners approved conducting a hearing Tuesday, Aug. 7 at 10 a.m. in the Clark County Commission Chambers to hear complaints, protests or objections in regards to the assessment roll for the Laughlin Lagoon project. The commissioners previously approved a hearing but a date needed to be determined.

The assessment roll is a record containing information about property and individual pieces of land within a jurisdiction. By adopting the resolution, the commissioners could move forward with levying the actual assessments for those particular properties.

The lagoon project is to be paid for in part by about $3.4 million in special assessments and by approximately $1.7 million from the Fort Mohave Valley Development Fund.

The Laughlin Town Advisory Board didn’t have any items to take action on, but they did hear from various agencies about what’s been happening for the last month.

The town advisory board did hear from Bronson Mack, of the Las Vegas Valley Water District, about road work on Bruce Woodbury. He recapped what happened with the water main break on June 23. He explained the need for the boil water order and how the district responded to the situation including keeping in touch with local media, securing water resources because of the boil water order and getting services back online as quickly as possible.

Mack expressed appreciation to the Clark County Office of Emergency Management, Clark County Fire Department, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and others for all their efforts.

He also updated the board on what’s still going on with road repairs on Bruce Woodbury. He said the district had anticipated having the work done and the road repaved. But as they were looking at that line, he continued, there were some things they identified.

First, that line is relatively old, Mack said. The district is replacing 400 feet of that old pipeline with the industry standard for municipal pipelines, he added.

Mack said they are looking to replace another section of pipeline, approximately 1,400 feet, sometime during the winter months. System reliability is extremely important and water users are paying rates to ensure having a reliable system, he continued.

He’s anticipating Bruce Woodbury will be reopened in its entirety the last week of July, Mack said.

The town advisory board also heard from Sgt. Raymond Hubbs, of the Nevada Highway Patrol. He announced he’ll be retiring at the end of the month but it’s unknown who will take command of the local patrol station.

The LTAB will meet again on Tuesday, Aug. 14 at 1:30 p.m. They meet at 101 Civic Way, Regional Government Center.
