Las Vegas City Council to Debate the Support of .vegas Domain

Joe Schoenmann of the Las Vegas Sun reports: "The Las Vegas City Council will debate today whether to strike a deal with an Internet entrepreneur who seeks to use the Internet suffix .vegas — over the objections of Clark County officials and one local company who say the city is jumping the gun and in the process likely shortchanging Las Vegas and county taxpayers. The council will consider endorsing a proposal by Dot Vegas Inc., to create the top-level Internet domain ".vegas" — a new suffix that could be used in addition to the familiar .com, .net, .gov or .org suffixes that end most Web addresses."

well yes, they are (a) jumping the gun and (b) shortchanging the city and clark co. By Eric Brunner-Williams  –  Feb 06, 2010 11:35 am PDT

need i write more? if lvnv and/or clarkco put out an rfp they will get bids, and it is unlikely that $1.50/domain-name/year defines the high end of municipal revenues.
