Welcome to Boulder City, a community that takes much pride in its history and traditions. While it is the "City that Built Hoover Dam," there is much more to this charming community. From our heritage as a humble town of 5,000 people looking for work during the great depression to the almost 16,000 residents living here today, there is a sense of pride and a welcoming spirit here. We stand by our core values: fiscal responsibility, accessible and responsive, a caring attitude and professional excellence. Our Mayor, City Council, City Manager and staff value transparency in government.
Taylour Tedder, Your City Manager
City Manager Taylour Tedder started in August 2021. He has been working in municipal government leadership roles since January 2013, and most recently served as the Assistant City Manager in Leavenworth, KS, a suburb of Kansas City, MO with over 36,000 residents.
Mr. Tedder is a graduate of Emporia State University and holds a Master of Public Administration degree from Wichita State University. Southern Nevada has been on his radar for some time. “Boulder City captured my interest as my wife Amber and I visited Hoover Dam a few years ago,” Mr. Tedder said. “It is the type of city we’d love to make our home - a premier, well-planned, family-friendly community with a small-town feel. The recreational opportunities and benefits of the metropolitan area nearby make it an excellent location.”
The City Manager is head of the administrative branch of the city government, appointed by and directly accountable to the Mayor and the City Council. The City Manager of Boulder City operates under a Council / Manager form of government. Under this structure, the elected Mayor and City Council are responsible for all policy decisions affecting the city. The implementation of council policies and the general administration of city operations is the responsibility of a professional city manager.
