Town Survey  We want to hear from you!  This survey is the first in many years, and will be an annual survey moving forward.  The purpose of this communication is to help your elected officials work on projects that are important to you and to determine a road map for our future.  Please look for it in the mail this month.  It is also available on the Town website and at the following web address:
 https://surveymonkey.com/r/Keenesburg 
If you are completing this survey on the paper form please return it to Town Hall, or by mail, or you can place it in the payment drop box located on the north side of the building, please return these surveys by August 15, 2017.

Colorado Mosquito Control monitors the mosquito traps around town to determine the fogging needs.  If you have a request for the fogging route, please contact Rob at CMC, 303-428-5908.

Peddler’s License   In an effort to increase the safety of our residents all solicitors and peddlers are required to obtain a license from the Town to sell or solicit merchandise or goods.  If someone is soliciting in your area please ask to see their license, as they are issued to each individual and they are required to keep their license with them at all times.    

The Monthly Lochbuie Police Report that is presented to the Board of Trustees each month is now available on the Town’s Website at townofkeenesburg.com.

Dog Licenses have expired May 31, 2017.  Please be sure to license your dog(s).  The license is $5.00 per dog and proof of Rabies, Distemper and Parvo vaccinations are required.   If your dog is a picked up by Public Works and is not registered with the Town, you may be issued a Court Summons.

Pedal The Plains  The Town of Keenesburg has been selected to be an overnight town for the Pedal the Plains bicycle tour.  The Keenesburg Chamber of Commerce is honored to host this event on Friday, September 15, 2017.  They expect approximately 1200 people for that evening that will double our population for one night!  As you can imagine, there is lots to do before that date arrives to prepare for this event.  Many volunteers are needed to make this run smoothly, please call Debbie at Town Hall if you are interested in helping.  Help us showcase our community and participate in welcoming these visitors.  Thank you!

The Book Mobile will be at Schey Park on the 1st & 3rd Thursday for the months of June & July from 9:30am – 11:00am. 

Public Works Report

Public works has completed the annual water valve exercises and will be moving on to repairing signs around town. Please continue to use caution as you pass by the crew in the Right of Way.  There are a few upcoming projects that Public Works would like everyone to be aware of; in August, we will be painting the streets and crosswalks, and September, we will be starting our annual sewer jetting project.

Park restrooms are open and we have been experiencing multiple cases of vandalism. Please make sure that we all do are part in keeping them clean and usable for the public. We want to make sure that they are available for everyone to use.  Make sure to contact Town Hall and let us know when you have events at the park. This will ensure that the restrooms will be open and sprinklers will be turned off.  Also, please be sure to clean up after your event.
