The battle over two ballot measures dealing with the city’s redevelopment authority and a new city hall went the Nevada Supreme Court Tuesday. City officials have refused to place the measures on the ballot because they claim they are unconstitutional. The Culinary Union, sponsor of the two initiatives, filed suit arguing that the city does not have the authority to hold the measures off the ballot. The court is expected to rule by April 22.
