BOULDER CITY – The City of Boulder City will allow up to 15 attendees at the June 23, 2020 City Council meeting, by RSVP only. It will be the first opportunity for the public to attend a City Council meeting in person since March 10, 2020, just before Governor Steve Sisolak issued Directive 006 suspending public meetings. (Directive 021 extends the suspension of public meetings, allowing teleconference or videoconference with public comment by phone or email.)
Attendance will be capped at fifteen members of the public to maintain social distancing requirements. Preference will be given to applicants who have an item on the agenda. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. Others may reserve a spot by contacting the City Clerk’s office at 702.293.9208. This will only be allowed at the City Council meetings; commissions and committees will still be held via live stream only.
Visitors will be required to answer the COVID-19 Self-Check Screening Questions and have their temperature taken. They are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings and may only use designated areas (Council Chambers and the restrooms). “Unfortunately, Clark County has experienced hundreds of new COVID-19 cases in the past two weeks, so I ask that those who attend please be respectful and honor social distancing,” Mayor McManus said. “Staff has spaced seats six feet apart. While we are happy to welcome residents back, we also will continue to provide a live stream as well as options for public comment as we have in recent months.”
The City is also planning to open the popular children’s Splash Pad located in Veteran’s Memorial Park on Friday, June 19. The Splash Pad is limited to ten children playing at once. The City asks if there are more than ten, that parents have children wait patiently others to leave before joining. Stay six feet away from others and follow CDC guidelines. And make sure kids wash hands often with soap & water for at least 20 seconds.
“While we are pleased to begin re-opening, we know that a measured, phased approach will help keep our community healthy,” said Al Noyola, City Manager. “We continue to ask residents to stay home if you have a fever (above 100.4°F), coughing or shortness of breath, or are otherwise unwell. We have made great strides in limiting this virus in Boulder City; we can continue to limit the outbreak if we all do our part to protect our most vulnerable residents.”
