There will be two town hall meetings on Tuesday, November 28 at 10:30 a.m. and another at 6 p.m. at the Clark County Government Center, located at 500 South Grand Central Parkway in Las Vegas, according to a statement from the committee.

The town hall meetings were scheduled to provide opportunities for public comment.

The 16-member committee, made up of community representatives, also released a draft protocol outlining how funds will be distributed to victims of 1 October.
