MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR:
I would like to thank the Public Works Maintenance Division and the Boulder City Police Department for working together to develop a list of vehicles and equipment that are no longer being used.
Timely disposal of equipment helps the City remain fiscally responsible by allowing us to receive the highest resale value for our items. I am happy to report that this week we received a check for more than $15,700 for items disposed of by the City. Your assistance allows us to better implement a comprehensive asset management plan, Goal 3 of Boulder City’s Strategic Plan, and maintain financial sustainability, Goal 2 of the Strategic Plan.
Daytime Watering Schedule for the Winter Months: Daytime watering in park and sports field areas began in early December in order help minimize the possibility of tripping hazards due to ice on sidewalks. The daytime watering schedule will continue until the late winter/early spring.
Public Works asks residents to change your clocks to water during daytime hours or discontinue all watering during periods of freezing temperatures. Public Works has received numerous calls regarding private property owners creating icy conditions on sidewalks and falls associated with the ice. Please help us protect your friends and neighbors by keeping our sidewalks ice free.
