People came from near and far to have their say on several topics at the Monday night Board of Trustee   (BOT) meeting. The first thing one noticed upon entering council chambers was the front of the dais, where the six Trustees and the Mayor sit, had removed seemingly so the microphones/sound system could be replaced or at least improved. It worked. LaVern and this reporter may no longer have to strain and lean in to hear what is being said. Well done. The sound quality is much better. Apparently they also made some changes on the toggle switch that allows Mayor Connie Sullivan to illuminate the “yea” (green) or “nay” (red)

Seven public hearings. In one night. That is what the Board of Trustees (BOT) were up against at Monday evening's meeting; plus an executive session!

Perhaps knowing that they had a long night ahead of them, the Trustees moved relatively quickly through the early agenda items. Lyons Substation Supervisor Sgt. Bill Crist informed the Board that his people had conducted an emergency training drill earlier in the day at Lyons Middle/Senior High School, and that it went well. His office is currently “at or just below” the budget for extra duty patrols, and he reported that, “we are gearing up for the Parade of Lights.” Finance Director Anna Canada used grafts and charts to show the revenues and expenditures for the month of October, and the Year-to-Date. Things look good

In a procedure not witnessed in recent memory, the Board of Trustees (BOT) conducted a quasi-judicial public hearing at Monday night's meeting concerning a citizen's appeal of a building inspector's decision on a house still in the process of being renovated five years after the flood.

In an episode as riveting any Perry Mason television drama, homeowner Bonita Yoder pleaded with the Trustees to overturn the building inspector's findings that, one, she could not use a specific type of industrial foam to act as a moisture barrier/adhesive between an exterior rock facade and the interior basement wall of her home on the corner of Second Avenue and Park Street; and two, she could not act

To say that things got a little confusing Monday night at the Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting when the subject of amending the intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the Town of Lyons and the Lyons Regional Library District came up on the agenda would be, a study in understatement.

Things were rolling along pretty well; Sgt. Bill Crist of the Boulder County Sheriff's Office reported that, “there were a couple of bumps” at the Planet Bluegrass concert over the weekend, but overall, “nothing major.” He also reminded those present that due to the leaf-peepers hoping to enjoy the fall colors in the mountains, weekend traffic through town will continue to be heavy for awhile.
