I'll post the answer in a few days.

Lay off the drugs....are you seriously posting a really dumb question in the Las Vegas forum?

I'm wondering if you are one of those people that call travel agencies and ask what the bus fare is to Hawaii.

Dumb Poll. The answer is yes and no. If you mean the City of Las Vegas the answer is no.

But more universally if you mean a Las Vegas, NV mailing address the answer is yes.

Now go away. You have to live here to ask such stupid questions.

Darn, olecapt has to be lurking around here. As a real estate agent, of course he knows the answer.

Olecapt is correct. Most of the Las Vegas strip is not located in the City of Las Vegas - it's actually in unincorporated Clark County.

What difference does it make? Plenty. It means that if you do bad, they send the Clark County Sheriff after you rather than the Las Vegas Police Department. Bribing the police department won't do a bit of good.

It makes a difference for fire protection and property taxes. And it means that whether or not prostitution is legalized will be up to the Clark County commissioners rather than the mayor of Las Vegas or the city council.

But to the rest, it doesn't make a lick of difference. I thought it was interesting trivia.

I was an engineer and a local activist long before I was an RE Agent.

There are many weird things about Las Vegas. You, like may who don't live here, get them wrong. For instance the City of Las Vegas and the County of Clark have exactly the same police force. Now if you lived here you would know that Metro covers both.

And even your examples are filled with silliness. The CCSD for instance is in fact a branch of the State of Nevada...as is the Southern Nevada Health District. That is right neither the City nor the County control either Education nor Health.

If and when you move here we will invite you to Olecapt's class about the weirdness of Nevada governing.

Hey any state that could elect Gibbons has to be at least a lot looney. .

Sorry they're being so hard on you, cedarbluff.

Many decades ago, the Las Vegas Police Department and the Clark County Sheriff's Department merged into what commonly is now referred to as "Metro" or LVMPD.

As Olecapt has stated, the strip is still patrolled by Metro as are other parts of unincorporated Clark County.

where you been???? I was beginning to think we were moderatorless!







response: *heh* I've never really been the official moderator in the LV forum. I just fill in when I have the chance. However, you're right, the LV forum is missing a full-time mod so please be on your best behavior, jfk!

It actually is in the City of Paradise, which is a suburb of Las Vegas.

Nice try LVD...but Paradise is not a city. It is a town.

Just to add to the confusion there are two kinds of town...

And paradise was strategic to the development of LV...Why was that?
