LAS VEGAS (AP) - City officials in Henderson are cutting hours at public pools, raising admission fees and eliminating an underutilized weekend food program at senior centers in an effort to close a budget gap.

The cuts approved at the Henderson City Council meeting Tuesday will save the city $2 million. They are part of a larger effort to tackle a projected $17 million annual infrastructure shortfall.

Pool entrance fees will climb from $2 to $3 for adults, while fees for youth sports leagues will increase from $40 to $50.

The changes to the recreation programs are among the less-controversial recommendations presented in February by a citizen-led budget review committee. The group also suggested a property tax of up to 20 cents per $100 of assessed value.

That proposal would require voter approval.
