STAFF UPDATES AND / REPORTS

Levy introduced the agenda item.

 

Public Safety- Chief Davis reviewed the recap they received today.  He noted lots is happening in the town and due to outside influences.  We received a resignation in the police department.  We have the speed reader set up in the town.  It will give a traffic count as well as slow the traffic down.  

Public Works- Director Bird noted the report was in the packet.  He wanted to draw attention to a couple of items. The recycle event went well. He gave as brief update from the report. He noted there will be two dog waste stations with bags and a trash receptacle, one by town hall and one by Depew and 43rd by the public notice board.

Town Clerk/Treasurer- Clerk Albright stated she was presenting the third quarter report verbally this month.  Michelle met with Kayty to discuss the fine tuning of the website. Michelle and I will be providing a list of items that to be addressed moving forward.  We will have to push out the date to go live to sometime in November due to the fact Kayty has had to delete and recreate different pages taking more time than originally anticipated.  This was through no fault of hers or staff. The holiday season is almost practically here and would like you all to be aware we are working around time off schedules, the holidays, 50% staffing levels, and still maintain our regular workloads. The Mayor and I have been working closely with various special projects this quarter.  One special project has to do with Jefferson County and Covid items. There were 248 4th quarter billings generated, reviewed, corrected as needed, and processed. And I would like to thank Councilmember Boehrer as she prepped the fall cleanup flyers and stuffed all the envelopes.  I also would like to thank Councilmember Ellsworth for his assistance with shredding documents, and researching and copying of zoning ordinances, technically it was not done in the 3rd quarter.  The help has been very much appreciated.

Town Attorney- Attorney King stated pretty much everything in the packet.

Court Clerk – Court Clerk Seidel’s report was in the packet. She gave a brief overview of her report. The conversion was successful effective September 9, 2020. Levy reminded the court clerk that the acceptance of the collection agency falls within the administrative role of the mayor.

Regarding the Sustainability Committee, he has reviewed the old description and has modified it a bit.  He mentioned additional comment for December.  CDOC is not in charge of planning events but publicizing them and suggested they bring ideas to council.  Econ Develop Jeffco reviews that regularly for enterprise zones.  He felt they should meet with them.  He shortened the dates for the town clean up.  IF there is a donation event for a truck goes to residents’ homes, earlier would be best and get it planned and publicized.

Bailey said they are behind in the planning on the goodwill donations event.

Levy said if you can do it before, it may have to be postponed.  The business trash cleanup issue.  He will ask for town attorney clarification.  The recycling event was a success for the town and not sure if the vendor felt the same way.  He will scan the report of the items collected and send to everyone.  He wanted to mention the need for volunteers to monitor the roll offs to keep from overflowing items in the dumpsters.
