Regional Cross Country Meet

Regional Cross Country Meet

Thursday, Oct. 17 | Lyons Middle/Senor High 

On Thursday, October 17, Lyons Middle/Senior High School will host the 2019 Regional Cross Country Meet.

While event organizers do not anticipate this event will be as big as last month's St. Vrain Invitational, an increase in traffic and on-street parking along the vicinity of the school will be evident. 

Lyons Middle/Senior High and the Town thank all residents for their patience and understanding during the event.

Good luck, Lions Cross Country!!


Single Hauler Pay-As-You-Throw

Monday, October 21 Board of Trustees Meeting

On October 21, the Board of Trustees will consider a recommendation from the Sustainable Futures Commission for a Single Hauler Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) program for the Town of Lyons. Included in the presentation will be an assessment of the bids submitted by haulers, from which the Board will determine whether or not to move forward.

The Board of Trustees will hold a special public comment opportunity at the October 21 meeting. There will not be a resolution presented on this topic.

The Single-Hauler PAYT program is a waste strategy that sets residential waste collection rates based on the amount of trash going into the landfill. Greater quantities of trash result in higher prices at the landfill. In order to make the program financially sustainable, the Town would require single-family residential units to use a single hauler for waste removal. To reduce the amount going to the landfill, the program would incorporate curbside recycling and compost services, as part of the hauler’s proposal.

Single-Hauler programs are intended to maximize diversion from landfills while simultaneously reducing the cost to residents through more efficient economies of scale. Reducing heavy truck traffic on local roads, and reducing emissions, is an added benefit.

Join us to hear about the program and share your viewpoint with your elected officials. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. on October 21 in the Lyons Town Hall Board Room.

Survey: Weekly Newspaper Replacement

A few months ago, Lyons' weekly newspaper, the Lyons Recorder, ceased publication. Since its closing, a committed team has been exploring ways to report local news, features, school events such as sports, and other activities in the area on a weekly basis - likely as a digital edition.

The team is interested in the community's interest and support for a digital paper: What kinds of features would you like to see? What's a reasonable subscription cost? Would you be interested in contributing?

To help the team better understand how a weekly paper could benefit the community, please take this quick survey.
