Here’s an interesting tidbit I ran across on the web the other day…it’s an article about what happens to the ‘lost and surrendered’ property at a bunch of airports…it comes to Boulder City for sorting, photographing, putting on eBay, and selling!

Well, a BIG thank you to Bret Runion for calling out the Mayor, every member of the City Council and the City Manager for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge…this was something to behold!
