Health District raises salaries for employees, fees for public

Las Vegas Sun, June 30, 2010

The Southern Nevada Health District board last week approved a $30,000 raise for its chief health officer and 5.5% raises for most of its 526 employees — and at the same meeting voted to increase some of the fees it charges the public for vaccinations and other services. The Las Vegas Sun began making inquiries about the five-figure raise that was to be paid out to Dr. Lawrence Sands over the next three years. Sands e-mailed a letter to Health District board members saying that “in good conscience” he could not accept the extra $30,000. His base salary is currently $225,000.
