Bearproofing Your Home

Sgt. Goldberger Updates

Bear Sighting

Last week, a bear sighting was reported in Town, around Ewald Avenue. Please remember that bears that are attracted to human food sources can damage property, vehicles and homes. Bears that find food around homes, campgrounds, and communities often lose their natural weariness of people, and consequently, become more comfortable and aggressive in attaining food. When bears become too comfortable around people, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) must intervene by either relocating or humanely euthanizing the bear if deemed a threat. By staying informed and taking preventative measures, you can help save bears by keeping them wild and away from human areas.  
CPW offers a range of resources for living in areas with bears. Please do your part in bear-proofing your home and property, to help keep bears alive. 

Craigslist Scams

There have been several recent reports of local Craigslist scams. Sgt. Goldberger advises to always be cautious when buying or selling through Craigslist, and trust your instinct. He notes, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is." offers the following tips for avoiding Craigslist scams:

  • Trust your instincts
  • Deal only with local buyers and sellers
  • NEVER wire funds to a distant buyer, via Western Union or any other carrier
  • Be wary if the other party wants to use an escrow service such as BidPay, Squaretrade, or even PayPal
  • NEVER give out personal financial information (eBay or PayPal info, checking account number, SSN, etc.)
  • always remember the most important rule — BUYER BEWARE

Boulder County Discount Electric Car & Bike Program

Boulder County and its municipalities are providing an incentive for people to leave the gas pump, by offering discounted rates on electric vehicles and electric bikes.

In 2015, the program facilitated the purchase of more than 750kWh of residential rooftop solar and more than 248 electric cars across the Front Range, equating to 5% of all LEAFs sold in the nation between September and December in 2015.
