LAS VEGAS — Clark County Fire Department Battalion Chief Renee Dillingham has been fired for allegedly abusing the sick leave system.
Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak is leading the fight to expose the costly scheme by a group of 15 to 20 firefighters.
"It should assure the taxpayer that we take this behavior extremely seriously, and we're going to continue to pursue it," he said.
