We maintain top quality parks, streets, flood control facilities, buildings, water distribution system, sewer collection and treatment facilities. In addition, the Public Works Department is responsible for managing numerous other City items, including the municipal cemetery, refuse collection and disposal, and many of the City's agreements with local business operations such as gravel pits and power plants.

Building for Today, Planning for Tomorrow

Did you know?

The Clark County Assessor’s Office has a wealth of amazing online resources waiting for you! Please visit: to discover all of the Clark County property information that is available at your fingertips. Users are able to perform searches using information such as address or owner name among other options on all properties in Clark County. This is a very handy tool. Once you find the property using the site’s simple search features you have access to the wealth of information that the County makes available. The public is able access aerial views, tax information, elected official information, and assessor maps showing the lot size, house size, construction year, and much more.  Officially recorded property dimensions are also available right on the web page.  

Boulder City does not have a land surveyor on staff.  Therefore, the only property line information we can accurately provide you is the information contained on the County Assessor’s web page. For assistance in locating your property lines in the field, we suggest contacting a Nevada Licensed Surveyor. 

In Boulder City, Public Works efforts include planning, building, managing and operating the heart of our community.  When the alarm goes off at 5 AM, we expect our light switches to work and our showers to dispense clean, safe water.  When we dispose of waste water we rest assured Public Works professionals will treat the water to a quality that meets or exceeds all environmental standards before returning the water to nature.  But our expectations do not stop there and neither does the services provided by the men and women of the Public Works Department.  We expect safe roadways and sidewalks for our journeys to work and school.  We expect the City buildings we enter to provide a safe atmosphere and we expect nothing less than the best parks in Nevada. 

This year’s National Public Works Week theme is "Building for Today, Planning for Tomorrow".  This theme represents the classic idea of stewardship embodied by the profession of public works and the professionals that practice it.  I am proud to be a part of the Boulder City Public Works team.  If you happen to see the men and women of Public Works in their brown shirts this week, please join me in thanking them for their service to the community. 

About the Director:

After graduating from the University of Missouri in 1990 with a degree in Civil Engineering, Scott immediately went to work for the Illinois Department of Transportation in Springfield, IL. While working full time, Scott enrolled at the University of Illinois where he completed a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and began a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering. 

In 1998, Scott moved to Boulder City to serve as the City Engineer and has lived here ever since.  He finished his Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2003. Scott has served as the City’s Public Works Director since August of 2005.  He enjoys the challenge of working for the City’s Public Works Department because it is responsible for all aspects of Civil Engineering. 

Thanks to a dedicated Public Works staff, cooperation from stakeholders, and support from the City Manager and Council, Scott is proud to have been a part of some of the significant projects that have improved the quality of life in Boulder City. The City’s hallmark venues such as Veterans Memorial Park and Nevada Way Revitalization projects have made an impact on Boulder City residents and visitors alike.
