The Weld County Regional Communications Center launched a new high-speed emergency notification system called CodeRED. The new system was activated on Saturday, November 15, 2014. This system will replace the existing reverse notification system used to alert county residents of emergencies. The CodeRED system will also offer new features to subscribers including free weather notifications via text or email. Please visit www.weld911alert.com to register for this service. If you were registered for the previous alert system your information will be transferred; but please visit their website to verify your information is accurate.

“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives...not looking for flaws, but for potential.” (Ellen Goodman)
Public Works Report
We have been working with BNSF to get the crossing on the West side of town fixed. Unfortunately during the crossing repair the sidewalks were damaged. We have been working with BNSF to get this issue resolved, but due to the time of year there will be a delay in the work.
The park is an area of pride for our staff and we work hard to maintain it for everybody. Over the last couple of months we have had vandalism at the park. All the new trees that were planted last year were broken at the base. We also have had bottles broken and graffiti at the gazebo areas. If anyone sees any suspicious activity at the park please contact the town or the authorities.
