LAS VEGAS (AP) — The top official regulating taxis in southern Nevada is resigning.
State officials confirmed Tuesday that Nevada Taxicab Authority Administrator Charles D. Harvey informed them of his plan to leave his post at the end of the week. They did not provide details about the reasons behind the move.
Nevada Department of Business and Industry spokeswoman Teri Williams said her agency's director was working on a plan to find an interim administrator before a permanent replacement can be found.
Harvey was appointed to the post in April 2011 after leading the Nevada Office of Veteran Services. He previously worked in the Clark County Recorder's Office, with the U.S. Geological Survey and in the Air Force.
The taxicab authority regulates an estimated 3,000 cabs and more than 9,000 drivers in Clark County.
