Local Parks & Recreation Fees Could Go Up

Reno officials are looking at raising parks and recreation fees to help with the $2.7 million the city’s department has to pay in raises to minimum wage employees in the coming years. The minimum wage increase signed by Gov. Steve Sisolak last year gradually raises Nevada’s minimum wage, starting with a 75-cent increase in July.
That will raise the hourly minimum wage to $8 for workers who get health insurance through their employer and $9 for those who don’t.
