Imposter Posing as Longmont Employee
A man posing as a City of Longmont employee is knocking on doors claiming to represent the Longmont electric utility and demanding payment for overdue bills. The man threatens to cut off electric service if the resident does not pay immediately in cash. The public should always be wary of anyone who comes to the door asking for cash. City of Longmont personnel always carry identification, wear shirts with City logos and always drive marked vehicles. If in doubt, call the city utility billing division at 303-651-8664 or visit the payment window in person at the Longmont Civic Center located at 350 Kimbark St. Read suspect's description.
Free Coffee and Conversation with Council on Saturday
Longmont City Council is hosting an informal chat over coffee from 9 to 10 am on Saturday, May 21, at OUR Center Hospitality House, 303 Atwood Street. At Coffee with Council, you can talk with two council members on any topic of your choice. Council members Alex Sammoury and Katie Witt are scheduled to attend. For information about city council meetings and agendas, call the City Clerk’s Office at 303-651-8649.
Review South Sherman Sidewalk Plan
The public is invited to review designs for a new sidewalk on the east side of South Sherman Street between Grand and Kansas avenues at an open house from 5:30 to 6:30 pm on Wednesday, May 25, at the Development Services Center, 385 Kimbark Street. Staff will be available to answer questions. For information contact Steve Ransweiler at email@example.com or 303-774-4532.
Beware of Potential Flooding in the Coming Weeks
With all the recent rainfall, City of Longmont officials are watching rivers and streams in the area with a keen eye. Fortunately, there is no reason for concern at the moment but this provides a good opportunity to remind residents about the dangers of flooding. High snowpack, warm temperatures and heavy thunderstorms are a recipe for flooding in areas near Lefthand Creek and the St. Vrain River in Longmont. Residents are advised to keep an eye on the sky and listen to weather warnings from the National Weather Service and local City officials. Better yet, to receive a phone call, text message, or e-mail message when flooding is imminent residents are encouraged to sign up for the Everbridge emergency notification system at www.ci.longmont.co.us/police/massnotification.htm.
Please Stay Out of Dry Creek Park Construction Area
For safety reasons, the public is being asked to stay away from the construction site for the new Dry Creek Community Park located in southwest Longmont south of Silver Creek High School. Large earth movers and pedestrians don't mix and there is potential danger to pedestrians roaming in the area. The construction schedule is expected to run from April to the end of 2011, with some work likely needing warmer Spring 2012 weather to complete. A full season for grow-in of sports field turf will be required prior to park opening and public use. If you have questions about this project, please contact Paula Fitzgerald at 303-651-8448 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
