Dragonfly Coffee Roasters Honor Lyons Fire District With A Special Blend

“On Thursday, September 12, 2013, the small town of Lyons, Colorado awoke at 2 a.m., to the sound of flood sirens and the thunderous roar of the St. Vrain River flowing higher and faster than ever in recorded history.

Date line: Tuesday, October 15

There wasn’t much on Board of Trustees (BOT) agenda Monday night (October 14). No Boulder County Sheriff’s report, no ordinances, no resolutions, no special events permits, no commission or committee updates, in fact there were no action items at all. The perfect scenario for a budget discussion; especially since October is usually budget season, and the Town Finance Director Tony Cavalier is bound by state law to present the Board with a “draft

Library District Taxes Clarified

By Mark Browning   
After recent Town Board and town meeting presentations about the Lyons Regional Library District, several inquiries have been received about details of the proposed tax to fund the library district.  This article will attempt to clarify the situation.

Prior to the flood, the Library District Board of Trustees certified ballot language setting a maximum of 5.85 mills of taxing authority to fund the district.  That amount (which could not be changed after submission) was selected because it was slightly less than average for similar-sized Colorado library districts.  It was also projected to be enough to pay start-up costs (election costs, plus hiring accountants and attorneys), to fund interim library operations and to pay for initial phases of building a new library/resource center (final site review and acquisition, hire architects).

There was only one item on under general business on Monday’s Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a lot to talk about. Self-described “Temporary/Fill-in/Acting/Substitute/Second-String” Lyons Substation Supervisor Sgt. Kevin Parker (for Sgt. Nick Goldberger) informed the Board that “as of this afternoon (Monday, October 7) the National Guard is no longer manning the check-point as you come into town.” Those duties have been taken over by the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, and will continue until Sunday, October 20. Parker indicated that there would be two deputies at the check-point during the day, and one at night. He also added that there would continue to be stepped up night patrols
