BACKGROUND: 

Since 2007, Clark County (County) and the Clark County Water Reclamation District (District) have participated as members of the Las Vegas Valley Watershed Advisory Committee (LVVWAC). The Boards for the County and District have previously agreed to and approved multi-agency agreements to contribute annually to the estimated operating budget for LVVWAC's maintenance activities for the Las Vegas Wash (Wash), with the previous agreement for Fiscal Year 2021/22 approved on June 1, 2021.

On January 11, 2022, the LVVWAC reviewed and approved the Fiscal Year 2022/23 Wash operating budget.  This is the first year of funding under the Las Vegas Wash Long-Term Operating Plan (LTOP).  The LVVWAC approved the LTOP on March 10, 2020.  It includes 36 actions to continue implementation of the Las Vegas Wash Comprehensive Adaptive Management Plan and to safeguard assets built under the Las Vegas Wash Capital Improvements Plan.  It was also agreed that a working group would be formed to assess the LVVWAC membership participation and LTOP funding methodology.

Approval of this agreement will allocate the monetary resources necessary for LVVWAC's operating expenses among the signatories to the agreement. The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) provides technical and agency coordination for activities related to the Wash and administrative support to the LVVWAC.

The FY 2022/23 operating budget for LVVWAC is $2,576,126. It is anticipated that there will be grant funding in the amount of $262,500, leaving the local share of the budget at $2,313,626. With the approval of the attached agreement, 43% of the local share ($762,743) will be paid by SNWA. The remaining $1,550,883 of the LVVWAC operating budget will be paid as follows: City of Henderson, $99,885; Clark County Water Reclamation District, $406,247; City of Las Vegas, $166,971; City of North Las Vegas, $72,304; Clark County, $225,356; and Clark County Regional Flood Control District, $580,120. Amounts are rounded for convenience. Funds are paid to SNWA as part of its administrative support of LVVWAC.

In accordance with NRS 277.180, the parties are authorized to enter into Interlocal Agreements to perform governmental functions and activities.

Staff recommends that the Board of Trustees, also sitting as the Clark County Board of Commissioners, approve and authorize the Chairs to enter into the interlocal agreement.

This agenda item has been reviewed and approved by the District General Counsel and the District Attorney's Office.
