North Las Vegas wants to buy water rights in Apex from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The City Council on Monday unanimously approved an exclusive negotiating agreement with the church in an effort to lease or buy up to about 2,300 acre-feet of the church’s water rights. Mayor John Lee was absent for the vote. The city agreed to pay the church $35,000 to enter exclusive negotiations. It’s part of an attempt to secure resources for future tenants of Apex, City Manager Ryann Juden said.
