New Public Works Director, Jamie Curreri, Begins Today

The City of Boulder City has announced that a new Public Works Director, Jamie Curreri, has been hired. He begins his new position today. The post had been vacant since May, when the previous director took a job with the City of Henderson. Jim Keane, City Engineer, had been Acting Public Works Director in the interim.

Mr. Curreri was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Port Jervis, New York, an upstate community similar to Boulder City, with the small town benefits of knowing one another for generations. He enlisted in the United States Air Force as an Aerospace Ground Equipment Mechanic. Upon discharge, his experience served him well as a crane mechanic and German crane specialist. Continuing along that path, he then became a Class A Water Operator for the state of Pennsylvania.

His vast resume includes roles as a Water Company Supervisor and Public Works Director for Hemlock Farms Community Association, one of the largest privately-owned communities in the Northeast that served more than 10,000 residents. He was also a Director of Facilities for the largest makeup and skincare manufacturer in the United States. He remarked, “Once our oldest son and daughter-in-law moved t the southwest, I began watching areas we admired and their job opportunities. One day, while scrolling on LinkedIn, I saw the Director of Pubic Works position post for the City of Boulder City. We researched the city, the community, and the area extensively. It was everything we were looking for and fell in love immediately. It’s what we were looking for in a community and lifestyle.

Mr. Curreri plans to start his career in Boulder City by learning about his staff. “Getting to know our hardworking team and their families is very important to me. I am eager to take some time to learn more about Boulder City’s uniqueness and about its residents,” he said. “I am excited to lead future projects that will continue the preservation of Boulder City’s charming characteristics, as well as make desired improvements for residents.”

“This role is of the upmost importance as part of the City’s leadership team. There are so many functions our Public Works staff are responsible to tackle,” said Taylour Tedder, City Manager for Boulder City. “The nationwide search brought us many wonderful candidates, by Jamie’s experience and leadership qualities set him apart. I look forward to working with him. I also appreciate City Engineer Jim Keane, who did a fantastic job as interim director over the past four months.”

Mr. Curreri is married to Kat (Kathy), who he has known since middle school. She has been a middle school science teacher for more than twenty years and served as a union president. They have two adult sons, Mitchell and Hunter. They also have two pets that they rescued: Lily, a Jack Russell-beagle mix, and Kitty, the cat, who was found in a wood pile at five weeks old.
