Staff Summary: Thomas R.

The defendants in this Specialty Court are adults who are addicted to substances and often not employed. The $15,000 will be used to pay for counseling sessions to assist defendants who are not able to pay for these services. The $15,000 is funding received from defendants who paid their fines for marijuana possession. Pursuant to CCMC 8.04.127, the Court may use this funding to assist with a court program and to pay for needed treatment services. Substance abuse treatment is critical and an essential component of the Misdemeanor Treatment Court Program.

The Misdemeanor Treatment Court takes a minimum of one year to complete.

Staff Summary: Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 277.180 allows the Authority and the City to enter into interlocal cooperative agreements. On May 17, 1990, the Authority entered into an agreement with the City that requires the City to "make available to Authority such officers, employees, facilities and equipment as requested by the Authority for the necessary operations and maintenance of the airport."
