Some of the federal money being issued to the states around the country has apparently been piling up in the Nevada’s piggy-bank in Carson City. Governor Steve Sisolak has launched a vigorous campaign to partner with counties and cities around the Battle Born state to get more Nevadans back to work to keep Nevada going and growing.
A lot of that work involves big projects like rebuilding roads, upgrading our public schools, improving wastewater treatment plants, building flood control systems all of which will create thousands of new jobs up and down and across Nevada.
The Governor also pointed out that Nevada has been planning on billions of dollars in public projects whose costs will be leveraged by a mountain of federal funds spread across the country to help America get back on its feet.
Governor Sisolak says he has a list of capital projects that can be moved forward during 2021…but also a list of barriers that must be overcome. There are also regulatory hurdles that must be conquered with local, state and federal resources. Sisolak says “We must keep our minds wide open and our observations keen on the direction we want to go,” and that he will be in close touch with the State Treasurer’s Office to properly manage the expansion of public improvements.
