BACKGROUND: 

Pursuant to NRS § 246.075 and C.C.C. § 2.32.026, Clark County imposes a fee of $14.00 for the issuance of a marriage license. Revenue from the fee is deposited into the Marriage Tourism Fund. In accordance with a 2016 Interlocal Agreement between Clark County and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority ("LVCVA"), Clark County pays the LVCVA the revenue generated by the fee, including interest, but exclusive of any amount designated by the Board of County Commissioners for use by the County Clerk or for other wedding tourism purposes. On August 3, 2021, the Board of County Commissioners approved the allocation of $250,000 of the Wedding Tourism funds to the County Clerk for FY2022 and annually thereafter, with the remaining tourism fees to be paid to the LVCVA pursuant to the interlocal agreement.

FY23 budget of $1,974,495 includes an estimated $1,107,905 in revenue and interest, plus a $866,590 carryover balance. Clerk FY23 funds of $680,304 include FY23 $250,000 provision plus $430,304 in pre-interlocal carryover funds, of which $248,483 are encumbered. Results will be measured by events created, attended, or promoted; leads generated; press and social media engagement; local businesses participation; and, ultimately, marriage licenses issued.

During FY23, the budget may be used as shown in Attachment A.
