LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas City Attorney Brad Jerbic announced today that he will be leaving his position on July 1, 2020. Jerbic, 62, has served as city attorney for nearly 28 years. He says he plans to work in the private sector following his departure from the city.

Jerbic will continue to work on Project Enchilada, but he will receive no pay. The project is a revitalization of east Fremont St., and has been a special one for Jerbic who grew up in Las Vegas. He has been part of the city team planning and directing the Project Enchilada aspects.

Jerbic has served the city of Las Vegas with distinction. He is the first city attorney to be appointed by the City Council. Prior to changes to the City Charter approved by the Nevada Legislature, city attorneys were elected for a time, or appointed by the city manager. In 1992, Jerbic was selected by the City Council.

Today, the city attorney, the city manager and the city auditor are selected by the council and report directly to them as well.

Jerbic has spent 34 years in public service. Prior to becoming city attorney he served in the District Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Who will replace Jerbic and how quickly will be decisions of the City Council.
