LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Officials want a committee to brainstorm how to handle an abundance of costumed street performers and vendors on the Las Vegas Strip.
The Clark County Commission on Tuesday agreed to create a working group that will spend 30 to 60 days developing a Strip clean-up plan. It will likely include police, health, and business
County residents tell commissioners drug addicts and transients buy cheap costumes and wear them to panhandle and hassle tourists.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal
reports a woman who dresses as a "Transformers" character says the county should screen out sex offenders by requiring permits for performers.
A man who impersonates a police officer from the 1970s TV series "CHiPs" says the proposed permits should be affordable, to help people who need the job to survive.
