NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - The acting top administrator of a financially strapped southern Nevada city is leaving to take a similar post in a small beach town in the Florida Panhandle.
North Las Vegas officials say Maryann Ustick has accepted the city manager position in Destin, Fla.
The Las Vegas Sun reports that Destin has about 12,000 residents and Ustick previously worked as a city official in nearby Pensacola, Fla.
North Las Vegas has more than 210,000 residents. It was among the fastest-growing cities in the nation last decade.
It's now struggling with a multimillion-dollar budget shortfall and faces a possible financial takeover by the state.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Ustick is latest executive staff member to leave the city.
The city attorney and utilities chief also left recently.
