My name is Minerva Gomez and I have lived in Las Vegas, Nevada for over 35 years. For the last 28 years I have worked for the City of Las Vegas, currently in the Community Development Department, Business Licensing Division. As the Business License Section Manager I oversee the administration of the business licensing processes. As a dedicated, regulatory professional, I prioritize staying informed about local and national trends. My core mission as a regulator is to effectively bridge the requirements of the city with those of the business community, and help streamline processes to create a harmonious relationship between both.
