Joint-use parking lot planned

-A A +A
By David Giuliani

The Las Vegas City Council today will consider an agreement with a credit union for a joint-use parking lot on city land.

State Employees Credit Union is planning an expansion that will deal with a large amount of customer traffic.

The city and the credit union have drafted a lease agreement that would give the credit union use of the nearby city riverwalk land for parking in exchange for $150,000 in improvements to the property in question. The land has been appraised at $52,000.

City officials have said they like that the credit union is planning improvements because it would allow better access, reducing safety problems. The credit union also plans to add more teller stations and driveup windows.

The council will consider the agreement at its regular meeting at 6 p.m. today in its chambers in City Hall, 1700 N. Grand Ave. The meeting is open to the public.

Las Vegas City Council Agenda


Public recognition of city museum volunteers. The museum staff has been assisted during the past year by several volunteers. The volunteers devote time on a weekly basis to help the museum achieve its goals of the care of collections, education and outreach. They have been taking part in the ongoing task of documenting, organizing and producing an inventory of the collection. They also assist with programs and events, and they are safeguarding textiles, costumes and photographs. Volunteers are Ginny Gable, Gertrude Johe, Eugene Johe, Lillian Jones, June King, Larry Ludi and Pat Romero. Museum supervisor Linda Gegick and museum board member Tibor Remenyik will recognize the volunteers.

Acknowledgement of city police Captains John Trujillo and Eugene Garcia.

City managers informational report

Report from the Las Vegas-San Miguel Economic Development Corporation.

Consent agenda

Award of materials for plant mix bituminous pavement, base coarse, crusher fines, sand and engineer file, pit run and cold mix. The low and sole bidder was Sangre de Cristo Gravel Products. The citys public works department said it uses a variety of construction materials on a daily basis. Therefore, the department states, a need exists to have these materials readily available so that routine maintenance can be performed expeditiously.

The council is asked to award the bid for inventory stock (gas) such as gas pipes and fittings required for system maintenance and expansion to Secor of Albuquerque, which was the only bidder.

Business items

Consideration of whether to approve publication of ordinance for joint lease agreement between city and State Employees Credit Union for a tract of land within the city for the purpose of a joint-use parking lot for the city and the credit union.
