Bicycles and the Road

Did you know Per Colorado Revised Statute 42-2-1412, bicyclists must follow the same rules as a vehicle including stopping at stop signs? There has been some confusion about the point system for bicycle riders. Bicycle riders who receive a citation for any violation are required to pay the same fine and fees as a person driving a motor vehicle, but are assessed no points against their license. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the police department at (970) 527-4822, and be safe. Chief Neil Ferguson

See this handy guide for more information, and thank you.

Police Blotter:


CODE RED
OH JOY! - Be Advised - The boil order has been lifted! What this means: the Town has repeatedly passed ALL test samples for the duration of the boil order and following the disinfection of the system. You do not have to boil your water, it is safe for all uses.
 
Be advised: There will be an elevated level of chlorine in the system for an extended period of time. You may notice air and/or cloudy water. This will dissipate as people use the water and flush the lines.
 
We want to thank everyone for their understanding and patience during this event, as well as a HUGE thank you to all who volunteered and shared kind words for us here at Town Hall and out working in the field.
