A good approach

The Las Vegas City Council deserves credit for hiring a third-party collection agency to help collect on past-due utility accounts. The firm will target 976 accounts, amounting to $256,000.

This decision was at the prompting of Utilities Director George DuFour, who has been creative in his approach to his job since being hired late last year.

If this collection effort works, as officials have pointed out, then the next goal should be to focus on unpaid fines in Municipal Court.
