Disaster Assistance Center Modifies Hours
The Longmont Disaster Assistance Center (DAC) will reduce its open hours beginning Saturday, Sept. 28. The new hours are 10 am to 6 pm seven days a week. County, city and community agencies will transition out of the DAC at some point next week and back to their regular service locations. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) personnel will remain at the DAC for an undetermined period of time from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The Town of Lyons will also operate from the DAC until further notice. The center, located at Twin Peaks Mall, 1250 Hover St., is open to serve all Boulder County residents who were victimized by the September flood.
City Replacing Damaged Water Meters in Flood Areas
The City is in the process of changing out water meters in flooded areas as there is a high rate of failure expected. Utility technicians will be going door to door, and all technicians will have a City of Longmont ID badge and will be driving a City vehicle. There is no charge for this service. If you have questions or if your basement flooded and you have not been contacted, please call 303-651-8468.
Free Coffee and Conversation with City Council on Saturday
Longmont City Council is hosting Coffee with Council from 9 to 10 am on Saturday, September 28, at Nicolo’s Pizza, 1631 Pace Street. At this event, you can talk informally with at least two council members on any topic of your choice. Council members Brian Bagley and Gabe Santos are scheduled to attend. For information about council meetings and agendas, call the City Clerk’s Office at 303-651-8649.
Residents Urged to Sign Up for Emergency Notification System
If we can’t reach you, we can’t alert you! If you have a landline telephone, that number is automatically registered with the City’s emergency notification service and you don’t need to do anything. If you would like to register a cell phone number, alternate phone number or email address, visit http://www.ci.longmont.co.us/police/massnotification.htm or call 303-651-8566. Don’t be caught off guard in an emergency.
