    Locals leaders urge fix of "broken" construction safety system - By Alexandra Berzon, Las Vegas Sun
    Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman said he was hopeful the city and the county could come up with solutions.

    'A lot is broke...but we can do something about this,' the mayor said. 'We're very concerned about what's happening in our community as far as safety of the hardhats - those people building the new Las Vegas. We want to make sure it doesn't happen in the future.

    County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani and Ross organized Saturday's meeting at County offices to discuss the rash of recent construction worker deaths on the Las Vegas Strip, and the weak response from Nevada's Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
