Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Clark County Commissioners will meet again Tuesday to discuss whether to eliminate the Constable's Office, despite a court effort to prevent it.
A judge denied a motion by John Bonaventura's attorney at a hearing on Monday. Bonaventura wanted a restraining order against commissioners to wipe the issue off the agenda.
They've been considering getting rid of the office completely. Bonaventura feels the move is personal, but the judge said the constable should show up Tuesday to plead his case before commissioners.
There's also a bill that's been introduced to the legislature to eliminate the constable's office.
The bill proposes the services be taken over by the sheriff. After the hearing, Bonaventura's attorney said there is no basis to eliminate the office.
Getting rid of the Constable's Office is an issue that has been debated in Clark County for decades. All previous efforts to do so have failed.
