Las Vegas morning update for Wednesday, January 3rd — VIDEO

Here are your Wednesday morning headlines:

1. Clark County commissioners have postponed approving the installation of more steel posts on the Strip after a dispute over whether some workers have been fairly paid. Nevada Foundation for Fair Contracting said Muller Construction paid three concrete finishers $6- to $7-an-hour less than they should have received. The county cannot continue with the project until the pay dispute is resolved.

2. A man is dead after a suspected DUI crash in North Las Vegas overnight. Police say two pickup trucks were traveling in opposite directions around 1:30 a.m. on Lake Mead near Statz when one of the trucks crossed over the median and crashed head-on into the other. Police believe the man who died may have been impaired, and he was not wearing a seat belt. A woman and child in the other truck were both hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening.

3. Henderson City Council voted unanimously last night to sell 55 vacant acres near Henderson Executive Airport to the Raiders. The team would pay about $6 million for the land and city documents show the Raiders want to use the land for the team’s headquarters and practice facility. Project developers estimate they would spend $75 million building the new facility, and that it would create 250 full-time, nonfootball jobs.
