City council approves parking garage; judge delays Beers' lawsuit decision
News

LAS VEGAS -- The Las Vegas City council approved a plan to move forward on building a downtown parking garage.

The 1,200 space, $25 million parking garage was proposed to support the $200 million downtown soccer stadium. Councilman Bob Beers doesn't think public money should be used to finance the stadium, so last month he collected more than the 2,300 signatures on petitions in order to get the measure on the June ballot.

However, last week, the city clerk's office said, due to its mistake, the minimum number of required signatures was incorrect. The city informed Beers he needed more than 8,200 signatures, not 2,300.

Councilman Beers suit went before a judge on Wednesday, but a Clark County District Court judge delayed a decision on the lawsuit.

Clark County District Court Judge Jerry Weise says he wants to review documents in the case and could make a decision in the coming days.
