Clark County commissioners officially ‘hire’ corrections director

Commissioners call for punitive action against chief probation officer



Perkins thanked Cooper for allowing untimely payments toward the county’s current policies, which Cooper said he had personally guaranteed to protect his client. When Stephenson said he’d prefer to table the renewal, Perkins asked if it was the right thing to do. 

“I don’t think we’re going to get a better quote,” Perkins said. 

But Stephenson wasn’t swayed. 

“There’s no need to be rushed into a decision if we can get better elsewhere,” Stephenson said. 

Commissioners President Jack Coffman seconded Stephenson’s motion when Perkins declined to do so, and the vote to table the policies passed 2-1, with Perkins in dissent. 

The commissioners will revisit the issue at their next meeting Aug. 1.
