There have been many events this past month in Boulder City. In late September and October, we welcomed many visitors to our wonderful community. The Sunrise Rotary hosted another successful Wurstfest to raise money for the High School Senior party. Art in the Park was a huge success raising money for the hospital. I continue to receive many compliments from visitors.
I want to recognize our hard working city employees. These events are successful because of the hard work of many people behind the scenes. City staff does a great job keeping up our park facilities. Although there are areas that need attention, our parks are kept in great shape. With the volume of visitors at an event like Art in the Park, you can imagine the impact the foot traffic has on the grass.
A few weeks back, I attended a cross country meet hosted by our high school. This event took place on the same weekend as Art in the Park! The cross country event brought in twenty-six high schools from the Las Vegas area to Veteran’s Memorial Park. Our park is a favorite of coaches for many reasons which include, easy access from the highway, the condition of the park, bathrooms that are clean and well stocked and the facility can easily handle large numbers. I overheard many visitors comment on how nice the park is kept. This is why the school district has chosen Veteran’s Memorial Park to host both Regional and State Cross Country meets every other year.
Many departments such as Police, Fire, Public Works and Recreation spend many days ensuring the city is prepared for the upcoming event. Many more hours are spent during the events keeping our city safe, clean and functional. Then, there are many hours afterwards in clean-up and maintenance. City staff deserves credit for a job well done.
Many positive things are happening in Boulder City. We have a great community to share with visitors who are enchanted by our small town charm. Boulder City is a wonderful city to represent. Your City Council will continue to work hard to make sure our community needs are met.
