Public Works and Natural Resources (PWNR) have repaired and opened 119th Street at the St. Vrain river. This was a major accomplishment – many thanks to the PWNR crews and engineers.
Our neighborhood cleanup has been going well. Thank you for parking outside of the affected neighborhoods when helping. These little things have allowed equipment to operate freely on some of the narrow streets. PWNR and contractors have moved volumes of material from these neighborhoods, but we still have more work to do.
Additional roll-offs are coming to the affected business areas soon.
Hayden Ct. paving operations are in progress. Please be aware of the extra equipment and trucks moving asphalt.
Be aware of possible scammers who may target you at your home or via a fraudulent charity. FEMA will never ask for money when doing an inspection.
Charity fraud tips:
The Longmont Police Department has always recommended residents donate only to agencies that you have researched. Do not donate in response to requests you receive via the phone, email, or by mail. Look up the phone number of the agency, and call that agency directly. Ask questions about what your money will fund. If you need further information, the Boulder County District Attorney's Office has a department which has great information on where/how to research a non-profit agency before donating.... including a state website to look up information on that non-profit. See "donating to charity" on this page http://www.bouldercounty.org/safety/victim/pages/dacpd.aspx The Longmont Community Foundation is an established local organization; you may donate to them or contact them for suggestions of local organizations to support. They can be found at longmontfoundation.org or by calling (303) 678-6555.
