|By reviewjournal.com- Blake Apgar|
North Las Vegas intends to hire Nevada Department of Corrections Director James Dzurenda to help get its jail up and running again.
The City Council voted Tuesday night to allow City Manager Ryann Juden to work on a consulting contract with Dzurenda, who is leaving his director job. The contract for Dzurenda’s services is capped at $150,000.
The talks between Dzurenda and the city started in mid-July, he said Wednesday.
