LAS VEGAS — Approval for additional steel posts along the Las Vegas Strip is on hold as southern Nevada commissioners investigate a pay dispute.

The Clark County Commission planned on approving the installation of 500 safety bollards Tuesday, but decided to postpone the vote by at least two weeks.

Nevada Foundation for Fair Contracting Director Lou DeSalvio says three workers claim Muller Construction has been paying them at a lower rate than they were promised.

The company’s Vice President of Marketing and Sales J.D. Calhoun says it’s the first he’s heard of the complaint.

The county is unable to continue working with the company until the pay dispute is resolved.
