HENDERSON, Nev. -- The City of Henderson is staring down the barrel of a $19 million budget shortfall. Proposed ways to bridge the gap include cutting services at local parks and recreation centers and increasing property taxes.
City officials say they want to hear from the public on the best way to make the cuts and what community members think about paying more to use city services.
Kim Dacasshe is a regular at Henderson Multigenerational Recreation Center. She brings her son Christian to the center every week for swim lessons.
"There's a lot of activities, always something to do," she said.
She isn’t thrilled to hear the City of Henderson is considering raising fees and cutting services at all its parks and recreation centers to save money.
“I stay at home, my husband works,” Dacasshe said. “I guess there are going to be sacrifices that will need to be made."
