Library seeks opinions on services, performance

Boulder City Library is conducting a phone survey of 300 households in town to learn their opinions on a variety of issues.

“This survey will give us an outstanding opportunity to hear from a cross-section of our patrons their opinions about our performance and what our priorities should be for the future,” said Library Director Kim Diehm. “We’ll hear from all of our service area, people of all different ages and everyone from newcomers to long-term residents.”

Diehm said the calls will be made on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. and from noon to 6 p.m. Saturdays. The caller ID will show Market Research Associates or just a phone number with an 816 or a 913 area code.

Those who are not contacted by phone can complete an online survey on the library’s website, http://bclibrary.org/.

“The survey process will take about two weeks to complete and the Boulder City Library is asking patrons to listen to their phones to ring,” Diehm said. “We really wanted to hear from you. So if you get a phone call on this survey, please participate and please let us know what you think.”

Patron Insight Inc. created the survey and will select participants at random. All responses will be kept confidential.

Chamber event hosts members, special guest

When Boulder City Chamber of Commerce CEO Jill Rowland Lagan was introducing videos from those speaking on behalf of the chamber, few expected to see a former president doing so.

Dollar Tree closer to opening

If there was any doubt that the former 99 Cents Only Store in Boulder City would soon become a Dollar Tree, recently-placed signs should answer that question.

Public weighs in on proposed annexation of private land

For the last several months, Acting City Manager Michael Mays told the council that city staff has been working with the owners of a small plot of land in the Eldorado Valley who have requested annexation. In other words, they would like to be a part of Boulder City.

Salon owner has no plans to retire

Whether it’s been hairstyles to resemble Farrah Fawcett and Dorothy Hamill in the 1970s, Princess Diana or Madonna in the 1980s, Jennifer Aniston and Britney Spears of the 1990s to those hot styles of today, Jo Ann Beneda has seen them all.

Lagan’s sights set on Paris

In less than three weeks, Lexi Lagan will be competing in her second Summer Olympic Games with a collective cheer of support from her hometown of Boulder City.

But is there really a shortage?

Getting Boulder City out of a more than decade-long stretch where no city manager has lasted as long as it takes a student to graduate from BCHS was the overriding theme of discussion at this week’s city council meeting.
