Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - Facing eviction? How should you respond to a 7-day notice to vacate? Need rental assistance? Need to seal eviction records? What rights do you have as a tenant?
 
Have these and other questions answered in a public forum that will be lived-streamed on Facebook and YouTube and aired live on Clark County Television (CCTV) this Monday at 6 p.m.
 
 
Join Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, Nevada Legal Services, the Housing Assistance Corporation and County staff as they answer these and other questions that have become all too common during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
“Much of our community has suffered a great deal financially from this pandemic,” said Commissioner Weekly, “but there are resources out there that can provide some help and I hope that this forum can provide our residents with the answers that they need.”
 
Residents may sign up to take part in the forum in-person at the Commission Chambers at the Clark County Government Center in downtown Las Vegas at 500 S. Grand Central Parkway. The first 75 to call (702) 455-2540 and sign up will be able to participate in person.
 
Others may log on to the County’s Facebook page to pose questions during the forum at www.Facebook.com/ClarkCountyNV. The forum also may be viewed live at https://www.youtube.com/user/ClarkCountyNV/live and on CCTV, which is available in the Las Vegas area on Channel 4/1004 on Cox cable and on CenturyLink on Channels 4 and 1004 as well as in Laughlin on Channel 14 via Suddenlink. CCTV is also available in Boulder City on Channel 4 and in Moapa Valley on Digital Channel 50.3.
 
The Washington, D.C.-based Aspen Institute projected in an August report that 141,383 Nevada households are at risk of eviction by year’s end if conditions do not change.
