Town Administrator's Weekly Update

Town Administrator             August 26, 2019

Preliminary Priorities for 2020.
Based on an initial review by the Board of Trustees, the attached table reflects the Board’s preliminary priorities for staff to use to develop the 2020 Budget. The Board will consider the 2020 Budget in detail in September/October. This preliminary ranking is the first stage of the Board’s direction on the 2020 Budget. Ultimately, the Town’s top priorities will be reflected in the funding the Board approves in the 2020 Budget. Most of the funding always goes to ongoing day-to-day operations, and the “priorities” listed in the table are over and above the day-to-day work Town staff is always doing.

Erie Police Department MADD Saturation Saturday


Command Staff members took certificates of appreciation to our sponsors of National Night Out (NNO).
SWAT Officer Castle took the Boulder County Bearcat to the Town’s first-ever “Touch a Truck” hosted by Parks & Recreation Saturday.  Along with him was Officer Cramblet in a marked patrol unit and Code Enforcement Officer Patterson in her code enforcement truck.  It was a great event full of horns, sirens and smiles!
Erie PD Officers received training on a new program offered by the Boulder County DA’s Office in conjunction with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office entitled, “Mental Health Diversion Program”.  This will be a great alternative for those meeting the criteria and who commit low level crimes.  This is currently in the pilot program stage.

Public Works

Here is some info (below) for the TA’s weekly update. This is related to water meters, and means we now have more than half of the Town covered by smart water meters. These meters allow our customers to track their usage by the minute, hour, day, week, month and year as well as providing real-time leak detection. Smart meters allow residents to optimize their water usage and conserve water. I’m attaching a screen shot of our meter at the NWRF. 

To add to that, for this year, we’ve replaced:

  • 581 of 679 pit meters scheduled (Sarah replaced 74 last week in 4 days)
  • 277 of 487 in-house meters
