Protect the Paws!

Protect the Paws!

This is a friendly reminder to please be aware of little paws, while the Main St. Streetscape & Confluence Area CIP projects begin to place asphalt!
Asphalt reaches around 225° F when laid – nearly 13° hotter than the boiling point of water, at 212° F. The freshly-laid surface opens to traffic very shortly after the hot asphalt is placed, as vehicle tires can withstand the warm temperature. However, pads on dogs’ paws are not as durable, and while the road may be open to vehicle and pedestrian traffic, the extreme heat of the newly-placed asphalt may still be present.

Consider placing the back of your hand on any patch or area with new asphalt – if you cannot hold it down for 5 seconds, then the surface is too hot for dogs.  

The Town will continue to send eblast notices when new asphalt is anticipated to be placed; however, always err on the side of caution and apply the 5-second rule. 

Your pooch is counting on you to protect its paws!

Drug Take-Back Day

Drug Take Back Day

The Boulder County Sheriff's Office and the DEA are teaming up for a drug take back event on Saturday, Oct. 22.
On Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

Bring your unwanted pills for disposal to:

  • Boulder County Sheriff’s Office at 5600 Flatiron Parkway, Boulder, or 
  • Lyons Substation at 432 5th Avenue, Lyons

The DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, disposing of unwanted medicines by flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash, poses potential safety and health hazards.

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs and for a complete list of all the October 22 Take Back Day collection site locations, visit DEA Office of Diversion Control.
