The Town of Keenesburg Mayor, Trustees and staff attended a emergency exercise in Hudson on Tuesday, May 31, 2011. The town continues to update its emergency operations plan in the event of a disaster. We do have a siren for a warning system, however it has come to our attention that some residents can not hear our siren. For your protection please purchase a NOAA weather radio so that you may have the most up to date weather information available to you. Please see the back of this newsletter for safety recommendations from FEMA.
The recent hail storm has brought many contractors to town. Please be aware that they must obtain a peddlers license from Town Hall in order to solicit work. The town currently does not require a building permit for roof replacement, but you have the option to request an inspection if you desire. The town board is considering changing this to require building permits in order to help protect the home owners from any possible fraud. Please contact town hall before you have any work done on your property for the latest requirements.
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT-JUNE 2011
We are aware that the streets are in need of cleaning, unfortunately the street sweeper has been inoperable for the past several months. We have had an estimate done, and now have the repair scheduled and it should be up and ready to go in the next month.
We continue to work on the west side of Schey park planting trees and bushes and installing xeriscape, to increase the enjoyment of the park!
