The Public Works Department of the City of Boulder City manages all aspects of the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for the City of Boulder City and provides development services for all private construction projects. 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. The Public Works Department professionally represents Boulder City at the Southern Nevada Water Authority meetings, Regional Transportation Commission meetings, and Flood Control District meetings.
Message from the Director:
Most citizens in Boulder City know the Public Works Department maintains the water, sewer, and electric systems throughout the City. What some people may not know is the fact it is the private owner’s responsibility to maintain these utilities from the meter to the individual fixtures. For the sewer service lateral, the property owner is responsible for maintenance from the home/business all the way to the main sewer line in the middle of the road.
If you experience a problem with any of these three utilities, Public Works will be happy to visit your site to review with you where the problem is located. Of course if the problem is within the City’s responsible area, the proper maintenance will be scheduled. If not, trained Public Works staff will suggest your best approach for fixing the problem. You can contact Public Works on the web at http://www.bcnv.org/?q=publicworks or by calling 293-9266.
Recently, Public Works was contacted by a private insurance company who intends to do a direct mailing to Boulder City residents offering insurance to cover the cost of repairs to utilities within the private maintenance area. This company is not associated with Boulder City or any of its Departments. Purchase of insurance is the sole decision of each property owner.
The Arch Structure:
Public Works staff was disappointed in the bids received for the arch structure. Therefore, we did not feel it was in the best interest of the public to award the bid. Instead, Public Works will be serving as the General Contractor by subbing out work to various licensed subcontractors who specialize in trades such as steel, electrical, etc. I am confident my staff can bring this project in within budget. Bids for the steel work are due on November 8th. As always, information on all Public Works projects can be found by clicking on the “Projects” tab on the left side of this page.
