At last .... marriage licenses will be issued at Mesquite City Hall by the Clark County Clerk's Office. Residents and visitors will not need to trek to Las Vegas to obtain a license to get married. This allows our city to develop Mesquite as a place to get married – a convenient alternative to Las Vegas, which will boost our economy through services which support weddings such as florists, spas, hair dressers and restaurants. Representatives from the Chamber of Commerce, Eureka, Casablanca, Wolf Creek and Conestoga golf courses have participated in discussions on how to promote Mesquite as a wedding destination.
The full-service office will be open on Wednesday, Thursday and a half-day on Friday. County Clerk Lynn Goya will be in Mesquite next week to finalize arrangements and work on the technical infrastructure. We expect the office to open sometime in October.
Clark County is about to issue its 5 millionth wedding license since the county was founded. We want Mesquite to take part in celebrating that milestone by encouraging businesses to create special offers for the bride and groom which will be included in the Clerk's Events Promotion.
I want to thank Lynn Goya and Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick for helping me to make this happen.
