City officials to receive performance reviews Tuesday

City Council members will review the job performance of three Boulder City officials during a special meeting at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday in the council chambers inside City Hall, 401 California Ave.

City Manager David Fraser, City Clerk Lorene Krumm and City Attorney Dave Olsen will receive performance reviews.

The session is open to the public.

The review comes seven months after the three were last evaluated by the council and is part of Mayor Rod Woodbury’s plan to revisit employees’ job performance every six months to help keep them more accountable for their work.

During the last review, Krumm received high marks. Fraser was also praised for his work, but was criticized for not making department heads more accountable for their performance as well as lack of accounting regarding the city’s solar leases.

Olsen’s review was the least favorable, with criticism coming for his lack of communication with the council and rudimentary computer skills.

Trial postponed for man accused of sexual assault of a child

The trial date for Clifford Curran III, a Boulder City resident charged with numerous counts of sexual assault with a child under 14, has once again been changed. The new trial date is Feb. 6.

Curran faces 10 counts of lewdness with a child under the age of 14, three counts of sexual assault of a child under the age of 14, three counts of open and gross lewdness, and three counts of indecent exposure, according to the district attorney’s office.

This is the third time a court date for Curran has been postponed.

He is currently being held on $475,000 bail.

Attorney general to visit Boulder City on Tuesday

Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt will visit Boulder City on Tuesday at part of his AG for a Day statewide tour.

The tour brings the attorney general’s office to local communities as a way to Laxalt and his staff to hear residents’ concerns and be directly responsive to them.

Their Boulder City stop begins at 3:15 p.m. in the City Council’s chambers inside City Hall, 401 California Ave.

The office will present information on topics affecting local residents such as open government, trends in consumer fraud, domestic violence, guardianships and elder abuse, taxation and local government finance, and military legal services. Following the presentations, Laxalt and his staff will listen to the concerns of residents and be there to answer any questions.

“Each county, city and town in Nevada has unique needs and is impacted differently by decisions made at the state level,” Laxalt said. “This is why it is so important for state agencies to listen to their concerns and identify issues that matter to the people they serve.”

The idea for bringing the office to different locations originated in November 1968 when Nevada Gov. Paul Laxalt, Adam Laxalt’s grandfather, created his Capital for a Day tour. The governor and members of his cabinet traveled throughout the state to identify and address issues.
