LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Members of North Las Vegas City Council On Wednesday approved an ordinance that would penalize landlords and property managers in violation of the governor's eviction moratorium.
The ordinance, which was approved during a city council meeting, amends City Code to fine violators up to $1,000 per day, revoke business permits or licenses or charge individuals with a misdemeanor. These criminal charges could put individuals in jail for up to six months and levy fines up to $1,000, according to a release.
Gov. Sisolak announced a statewide eviction moratorium for Nevada on March 30.
Council members met virtually to discuss the proposal.
