The Las Vegas City Council will consider hiring a new director for the local public housing authority. at its meeting Wednesday night.
The council’s agenda states that the recommended candidate is Robert Pacheco, but it doesn’t indicate what his experience is.
The position has been vacant since the summer when a council majority voted to let go the housing director and five other city directors.
City officials have taken a go-slow approach to filling the six vacant positions, saying the city is benefitting from the savings in a tight budget year.
