Agenda Item Brief: Background:
The Sparks Legislative team recommends approval of 2015-16 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.
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.
Nevada League of Cities & Municipalities 2015 Annual Conference will be held October 13-15 in West Wendover, Nevada. The 2016 Conference will be held right here in Sparks, Nevada on October 12-14.
The NVLCM Executive Director Wes Henderson will be available to answer any questions from the Mayor and City Council Members.
The City Council could decide not to approve the NVLC&M 2015-16 Dues.
I move to approve the 2015-16 dues for the Nevada League of Cities & Municipalities in the amount of $20,150.78.
