Clark County Approves $350,000 Settlement with Las Vegas Paving

Paving contractor sued NV county over cancelled emissions-credit program

Clark County, Nev., failed to keep its end of a deal to honor a program that allowed companies that emitted particular types of air pollutants to offset them with credits. The county also failed to pay Las Vegas Paving Corp. for roads that were initially paved in exchange for credits to be used in this system, which was later eliminated by the Clark County Commission.

Las Vegas Paving Corporation filed a lawsuit against the county in 2006, alleging, among other things, a breach of contract. The county agreed to a $350,000 settlement with the paving company today.
