Boulder City ARPA Spending through 2022

City Hall Spring 2020

BOULDER CITY - The City of Boulder City received $21.7 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds in 2022. While $11.7 million must be spent on the COVID-19 public health emergency or its negative economic impacts, to provide grants to agencies that provide essential needs, for government services, or to make necessary investments in infrastructure (i.e. water, sewer), the remaining $10 million may be spent in any way under the streamlined revenue loss provision.  

In July, City Council approved a plan to invest the funds on a variety of projects, including infrastructure improvements as well as to help local organizations.  Here is a look at some of the larger expenditures as of December 31, 2022 (unaudited report):

Spending in the months since City Council approved the budget totals more than $3.3 million. “I expect that the Fire Department substation, City facilities and security upgrades, and the Municipal Golf Irrigation projects will be addressed in the coming year,” said City Manager Taylour Tedder. “We have until the end of 2026 to spend the funds. City staff is doing its due diligence in planning out the projects and prioritizing those with the most significant impact first.”
