ABOUT TOWN 1/20/22 – 2nd of Year 2022 – #3 – for the Lyons Recorder online
Another week gone by; 2022 so far has been snowy and cold; however, the sun shines during the day..that is Colorado.
Be sure your water is dripping, you have your heat up, your pipes don’t freeze, and leave the heat up after it gets warm as the heat pushes the cold down to the pipes.
Another Year has come; 2021 was a dull and scary year; with thousands dying from the COVID, and now Omicron is here; There were 1034 new cases today! We should all stay in, stay away from crowds, wear a masks, social distance, and wash hands; Encourage all you know to get vaccinated. It is the only hope!
SCHOOL NEWS: It is strange; however, dangerous, when they announced at the High School Basketball games that “all should wear masks” County rules..no one pays any attention. I guess they think they are infallible and won’t get it.!!!
Now Is the time to get your homework and good grades; to graduate with high honors to be able to get into college.

Town of Lyons MEETINGS / NEWS
LYONS PARKS & RECREATIION COMMISSION 1/10/22
– PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE WALK – met on Monday, with Yelena Hughs, presiding. Members present were: Claudia Kean, Sec’y, Sandra; Tom Delker, Randy Pollard, CJ Sparks. Several had walked from the proposed bridge along 4th Avenue to view the sidewalk going to the Elementary School from the 4th Street Bridge; to see if the Safe Routes to School grants has funding for at least one side of the street. The West side seems to be the most feasible, as the hotel may include the sidewalk on the east side, with the east side being done in sections as they have the money. Designated to cost around $200,000; there are no funds for a sidewalk at this time. The sidewalk will go North to the Elementary School, and has to cross the streets a time or two. The 4th Avenue bridge should be completed before the spring runoff. They wish to tell the Town to consider saving the old trees along the east of the sidewalk.
