Free Pony Wagon Rides

posted Sep 26, 2016, 11:10 AM by Aaron Baker



On Saturday, October 1 from 10:30 to 2, the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum will offer free pony wagon rides. The rides will begin behind the Museum.


“We would like to thank local resident, Sam Reber, for making these rides possible,” said Museum Coordinator Elspeth Kuta. “He is always so generous with his time, talents and knowledge about the local area.”


Sam Reber comes from a long line of Mesquite residents. He has worked with horses most of his life—working teams, going on wagon treks and putting teams in local parades. He has owned Clydesdales, Belgians, English Shires and Quarter Horses. Most recently, Sam has raised miniature ponies. In fact, Sam will use his miniature ponies “Blackie” and “Buckie” to pull the wagon at this activity.

Business Licensing Code Update

posted Sep 19, 2016, 4:26 PM by Aaron Baker

The City of Mesquite Development Services Department recently conducted an audit of the business licensing code. As a result of the review, code amendments are being proposed that will eliminate archaic requirements, clarify several poorly worded sections, simplify business license application information and establish equitable requirements amongst similar businesses. The potential changes would impact cosmetologists, lawyers, insurance agents, dentists, doctors, miscellaneous service businesses and public utilities.

In an effort to make the code more user-friendly, the draft changes to Title 2 of the Mesquite Municipal Code also proposes creating some much-needed business classifications, while consolidating others. Several business classifications will also receive definitions or clarifications.

Among other revisions, a new chapter will be added to Title 2 for public utilities that will gather all the disparate public utility code sections and consolidate them into one place. Additionally, the public utility chapter will be updated to comply with Nevada Revised Statutes.

While reviewing the code, the business license team investigated neighboring jurisdiction costs on related licenses types and found some City of Mesquite fees to be too high, while others were too low, and will recommend adjusted fees accordingly.

A copy of proposed Bill 503 is available at the City Clerk’s office, 10 E. Mesquite Blvd., or may be obtained online at www.mesquitenv.gov/Bill503.

If you have questions or comments about how these proposed amendments may or may not impact your business, please contact Business Licensing via phone (702) 346-2835, via email businesslicenses@mesquitenv.gov, or via post at City of Mesquite Business License Office, 10 E. Mesquite Blvd., Mesquite NV 89027. Individuals are also welcome to stop by City Hall Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
