Governor Jim Gibbons has appointed Stephen P. Quinn to the Nevada State Contractors Board. Quinn is President of Precision Construction in Las Vegas. He started the company in 1983 and over the last 25 years his company has completed more than $225-million dollars of commercial and medical construction, as well as public works projects.
Mr. Quinn has been a Nevada resident since 1972. He was a member of the City of Las Vegas Planning Commission for more than seven years. In 2007, Mr. Quinn was appointed to and then voted Chairman of the City of Las Vegas Building and Safety Enterprise Fund Advisory Committee. Mr. Quinn also devotes a great deal of time and energy to community causes, including the Crippled Children’s Transportation Fund which helps transport children to Shriner’s Hospitals for treatment. Additionally, Mr. Quinn serves as an Honorary Wing Commander on the Nellis Support Team.
“I feel privileged to be selected by the Governor for this position,” Quinn said, “I am anxious to work together with the other Board members to ensure quality and safety for Nevada’s contractors, construction employees and the public.”
Stephen P. Quinn will replace Guy Wells on the Board. The Nevada State Contractors Board is empowered with determining the qualifications of applications prior to state licensing, and setting forth conditions for licenses. The Board is also empowered to disseminate rules and regulations necessary for implementing and enforcing Nevada law as it relates to contractors, and to discipline licensees found in violation of statute.
By law, the Board is made up of seven members, of which six are contractors and one is a member of the public.
