The Las Vegas constable's office will be abolished in 2015. That's if a legal decision doesn't block the vote. News 3's Marissa Mike was at the county commission when the vote was made.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County commissioners have voted to abolish the Las Vegas Township Constable's office, a day after a state senator introduced a similar measure to get rid of the agency.

The commission voted unanimously Tuesday that the agency should lapse after Constable John Bonaventura's term expires in 2015. A proposal introduced Monday by Las Vegas Republican Sen. Michael Roberson calls for the office to be abolished as soon as the bill passes.

Bonaventura's office performs duties such as serving paperwork and carrying out evictions, but has faced scrutiny since he was elected in 2010.

Commissioners criticized the office for accounting practices that circumvent county oversight, as well as for filming a profanity-laced pilot for a reality television show.

Bonaventura said the effort will not work.
