Two town hall meetings seeking public input are being held Nov. 28 to discuss the disbursement of the Las Vegas Victims' Fund.

The fund was established after the mass shooting on Oct. 1 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

The town meetings will take place at 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the Clark County Government Center. Those who are unable to attend can also watch the meetings on Clark County Television (CCTV) as well as via live stream at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov and at https://www.youtube.com/user/ClarkCountyNV/Live.

Written comments are also welcome at comments@lasvegasvictimsfund.org or by mail to Las Vegas Victims' Fund, P.O. Box 551111, Las Vegas, Nevada 89155-1111.

Almost $11.6 million was donated to the fund after the mass shooting that claimed 58 lives and injured hundreds of others.

A committee of 16 community representatives are overseeing the distribution of funds. A draft protocol can be found here.  https://lasvegasvictimsfund.org/
