LAS VEGAS -- The framework for the new Las Vegas City Hall is now in place on the seven story structure.
The building near Clark and Main was topped off Friday meaning the final steel beam was put in place.
City leaders and construction employees got to put their signature on the beam. Despite the recession, Mayor Oscar Goodman pushed hard for the new hall. He says it created needed jobs and is another step in the effort to redevelop downtown and it will replace the current aging headquarters.
"We're building a building that everybody's going to be very proud of, they're going to want to come into it and do business," said Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman.
Construction on the new City Hall will finish in 2012. It's being financed with more than $180 million in bonds along with money from the stimulus package.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
