Agenda Item Brief: The Sparks Legislative team recommends approval of 2014 Membership dues for the NVLC&M. Membership to the NVLC&M supports the City in fulfilling its adopted state legislative platform. The advocacy on behalf of the League, along with sharing of information is a benefit and important component in monitoring and advocating for or against applicable legislation. By speaking in a unified voice, Nevada Cities are more effective in achieving a positive legislative outcome. Additionally, The NVLC&M offers a number of learning opportunities to interact with other elected officials throughout the state. Sparks Mayor Geno Martini currently serves on the Executive Board of the NVLCM as the Secretary/Treasurer.

Background: The original goals and objectives of the first League are the same that were adopted by the Nevada Municipal Association in 1959, and remain true today: To foster periodical conferences of city officials; disseminate knowledge of municipal affairs and government; to circulate publications on municipal affairs; to secure harmony of action among cities; and to render technical information and other services to the cities.” In 1995, the League By-Laws were amended to include membership from affiliates such as unincorporated towns, general improvement districts, and other municipalities. At the 38th Annual Conference in West Wendover August 16, 1997, the general membership adopted the name, “NEVADA 2014 Annual Conference: Nevada League of Cities & Municipalities 2014 Annual Conference will be held on September 23 – 25 , 2014 at North Las Vegas.


Alternatives: The City Council could decide not to approve the NVLC&M 2014 Dues
