Public Safety? Not in Avon, Colorado

Every reasonable person knows that Government’s #1 Job is “Public Safety”.

However this is not the case in Avon, Colorado.  Dateline:  Monday, February 12th 2018

By the ECT’s count – we’re now in week #5 – celebrating the dis-repair of this Road Hazard half way up on Metcalf Road.  Weeks ago the original damage to this guard rail was done – when a vehicle crashed into it – coming down the icy hill from Avon’s Wildridge neighborhood.  Speaking of “going down hill”…here is more interesting Avon information…Week-5-Metcalf-Guard-Rail-11FEB2018

Last time the ECT checked – no less that (3) current Avon Councilmembers drive past this ongoing road hazard from their respective residences in the Avon/Wildridge neighborhood – each day for the last (5) weeks and counting… 

They are: Avon Councilmembers:  Sara Smith-Hymes, Scott Prince and Matt Gannett.

Their concern for Avon’s Public Safety is now put into question.

Credit should also be given to  Avon’s Public Works Director:  Gary Padilla (970.748.4188 –  GPadilla@avon.org)   Does Mr. Padilla know what his job is…in the context of “Public Safety”?   After 5 weeks and counting…to what safety standard is Mr. Padilla  being held to by his boss – Avon Town Manager –Virginia Egger?

 More Reasonable Questions

One wonders…if Avon’s current leadership and management is NOT concerned about their #1 Job, then what is it that they are more concerned about?  Let’s have a look at the Avon Council agenda for Tuesday, February 13th, and see if we can find some answers…

Apparently, Councilmember (and WildRidge resident) Sarah Smith Hymes seem to be more concerned with Congress than her sworn duties in Avon…

Of course at that same ATC meeting is the incredibly important Avon issue of “Climate Action” where ATC members will be asked to “hand over” Avon Taxpayer monies to support “Climate Action”.

Any who could forget the Proclamation to celebrate Avon’s 40th Anniversary?

40th-Anniversay

What’s the Avon Police Department been up to…after their move to Avon’s band new “Public Safety Facility”?  One of the answers is “supporting the Special Olympics of Colorado” with their scheduled “Polar Plunge” into Avon’s Lake Nottingham on February 24th, 2018.  (Click Here) for more information.

Fear Not.  Today, there is plenty of Real Estate for sale in Avon’s Wildridge neighborhood.
