Here are your Sunday morning headlines:
1. Fremont Street Experience is full of buskers trying to captivate the attention of tourists downtown. But buskers are not satisfied with the city’s performer lottery system that determines who performs and where. Performers can register for a daily lottery that assigns performance slots at 38 poker chip spaces under the canopy of the Fremont Space Experience, between 3 p.m. and 1 a.m.
2. The federal government filed a lawsuit Friday against Clark County, claiming the county has cost the government “tens of millions of dollars” by leasing the Bali Hai Golf Club for far less than market value. The lawsuit follows an Aug. 18 letter from the U.S. Department of Justice demanding Clark County pay $75.5 million in underpaid rent for the golf club. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages from Clark County.
3. Clark County School Board Trustee Kevin Child has called for a forensic audit of CCSD’s finances. Calls for the examination follow the announcement of a hiring freeze due to a budget deficit. The size of the budget deficit has been growing since July, when it was first announced as a $34.5 million shortfall. The deficit is currently estimated at $50 million to $60 million.
