STAR Award Presented

STAR Award

During Tuesday night’s meeting, the Board of Trustees, recognized a group of employees from the Erie Police Department for their exceptional customer service and teamwork that was demonstrated throughout the planning and execution of the first Town-wide National Night Out event.

The Erie Police Department has participated in National Night Out (NNO) events for many years, but decided to try something different in 2018. Instead of disbursing officers to various neighborhoods where they could only stay for a limited amount of time, they were going to bring all of Erie’s neighborhoods together in one location at Erie Community Park.

On Tuesday, August 7th, Erie celebrated National Night Out and the event was a great success with a celebration of safety, coming together as a Town, providing a fun event for the kids and a great opportunity to meet new neighbors. A special thank you to the following staff members for their role in making the event such a success:

  • Commander Mike Haefele
  • Administrative Manager Sarah Lambert
  • Sergeant Kevin Jamison
  • Records Specialist Andrea van Doorn
  • Records/Court Specialist Missy Carranco
  • Assistant Recreation Coordinator, Programs Karinne Monn

BACKGROUND: The STAR Award has been created to recognize and express appreciation for services rendered by Town employees who demonstrate exceptional service and/or performance in one or more of the following categories: Customer Service, Safety, Creativity, Teamwork and Outstanding Achievement.

During Tuesday night’s meeting, the Board of Trustees recognized Andy Greve’s for his attainment of Eagle Scout. Andy’s Eagle Scout Ceremony was on July 22nd.

Andy has grown up in Erie and attended Flagstaff Academy from kindergarten to 8th grade, and is now a junior at Niwot High School where he is also a member of the high school band, football, wrestling and track teams. Andy has been involved in scouting since 5th grade and is now a 3rd generation Eagle Scout and has been elected to the Order of the Arrow, the National Honor Society for Boy Scouts America, and has earned a total of 58 merit badges, 37 over the required 21 for an Eagle Scout. Congratulations, Andy!

Board Approves Special Review Use Applications

In three separate actions, the Board of Trustees approved three special review use applications. This review process is intended to provide assurance to the community that such uses will be compatible with their locations and surrounding land uses. All three applications approved, were for “Commercial Amusement”, indoor type use businesses. The following three applications were approved:

  • Revel Dance Center, LLC located at 460 Jones Court #102 provides dance education for both children and adults for all levels of interest.
  • Erie Training Systems, LLC located 460 Jones Court #104 provides personal training and small group CrossFit style classes to adults.
  • Fitness 1440 located at 651 Mitchell Way provides a facility for group training and personal training to private members.

The Erie Board of Trustees and Town Staff are excited to welcome these three new businesses to Town.
