North Las Vegas: How did it get into this mess

City Manager Tim Hacker is moving forward on his effort to suspend parts of the union contracts. He says it has to be in order to save the city in this dire budget crisis. The move is highly controversial based on a rarely used law that was intended for emergencies such as riots or war. The unions are fighting back and taking the city to court. What do North Las Vegas residents think of all this?  And what has been lost after years of hundreds of cutbacks?
