BOULDER CITY – You may not see them, but they are always there: public servants making sure our residents are safe, getting the services that they need. The employees of the City of Boulder City protect us through law enforcement, by responding to fires and medical calls, providing us justice through the courts, managing our vital records, make sure we can vote, and so much more. The week of May 1-7, 2022 is designated by the President and Congress as Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW).
PRSW has been celebrated since 1985 during the first full week in May. It is a time to honor those who serve our nation as federal, state, county, and local government employees. Public Service Recognition Week highlights the accomplishments of the dedicated public servants who work tirelessly on behalf of all Americans and who rarely get the credit they deserve.
Banners will be placed in front of the larger city facilities during the week-long celebration, and storyboards describing the work of each department will be displayed inside buildings. Boulder City’s social media accounts will also recognize employees, utilizing a hash tag of #PSRW.
There is also a Proclamation that Boulder City Mayor Kiernan McManus has signed to recognize staff. “These past two years dealing with the pandemic has been a challenge. Our City employees stepped up to address these demands that lessened the impact on our residents and greatly accelerated our recovery,” said Mayor McManus. “Our City continues to be the Best City by a Dam Site because of the work by our dedicated employees. On behalf of the City Council and our community I want recognize the work our public service employees do for our City.”
In Boulder City and throughout the nation, dedicated public servants worked through the pandemic, providing hope to their neighbors. “Unlike larger communities with thousands of employees, our team does more with less, and they are willing to go above and beyond when necessary. Many employees took on new duties to help thousands of residents get vaccinations, food and financial assistance,” said Taylour Tedder, City Manager for Boulder City. “The employees of Boulder City are now focusing on helping our residents and businesses as we recover from the economic and social implications of the pandemic. I believe – with this team – Boulder City will emerge stronger and better.”
