LAS VEGAS (AP) — North Las Vegas officials say they've reached agreements with two labor unions and are working to settle with others as they try to stave off a possible takeover by the state.

Mayor John Lee announced the deal Wednesday evening, after a day of talks that involved Gov. Brian Sandoval.

The governor hosted negotiations in his Las Vegas office a day before city managers were to present a tentative plan to deal with an $18 million shortfall.

North Las Vegas has been trying to stem its bleeding for several years. In January, a state judge ruled the city could not withhold $25 million in pay raises to public safety employees.

Last week city officials proposed a $7.7 million settlement with the unions, saying the alternative would be steeps cuts and layoffs.
