The article reports on the increase of construction costs in Nevada, which has inclined municipalities in the state to consider sizeable inflation rates when planning multi-year construction projects. A boom in the population has led to the construction of more houses and casinos, making it difficult for contracting firms to handle such amount of work with less time and resources. Bids on requests for proposals involving public projects have lessened, empowering developers to name their price.
