BC Recognizes Public Service Recognition Week May 7-13

City Hall Summer

BOULDER CITY – Keeping the streets, sidewalks and trails clean and safe. Responding to emergencies. Keeping the electricity on and the water running. Ensuring fair elections. Getting new businesses started – everything from guiding owners to resources, to obtaining proper licenses, to inspecting for code compliance. Keeping our books balanced and finances transparent. These are just a few priorities for the employees of Boulder City. The week of May 7-13, 2022 is designated by the President and Congress as Public Service Recognition Week.

Boulder City was built out of Public Service. In 1931 – in the early years of the Great Depression - five thousand families migrated here to take on one of the largest-ever public service projects: building the Hoover Dam. Since then, hundreds of Federal, State, Municipal and School employees have made their homes here. Veterans account for one out of ten residents in our City. Public servants are our family, our neighbors and our friends.

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. Boulder City Mayor Joe Hardy, himself a long-time public servant and M.D., signed a Proclamation to recognize staff. “When I was elected, one of my goals – and it’s listed on the wall in my office – is to retain people,” said Mayor Hardy. “Our City employees are talented, dedicated and love what they do. They want to keep Boulder City the best place to live, play, work and retire.”

Public servants include military personnel, police officers, firefighters, health care professionals, doctors, teachers, astronauts, laborers, computer technicians, social workers, and countless other occupations. “Public Service is truly a calling. It takes a commitment to excellent customer service, as well as expertise and confidence in one’s abilities to keep a community strong and thriving,” said Taylour Tedder, City Manager for Boulder City. “I am thankful for all Boulder City employees do for our wonderful community, as well as the thousands of public servants working across the country and around the world.”

Public Service Recognition Week has been celebrated since 1985 during the first full week in May to highlight the accomplishments of the dedicated public servants who work tirelessly on behalf of all Americans and who rarely get the credit they deserve.
