TUESDAY, Oct. 27nd, Planning Meeting 7:00 pm
Weld County's official fossil, Pops the Triceratops, was successfully transported from the Weld County Administration Building to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. To help celebrate Pops, Weld County thought it would be fun to have a Positively Perfect Pumpkin Parade, but we need your help! Email photos of your prized pumpkin (you can carve it, paint it, bedazzle it - we don't care) by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 29, 2020, and we'll hold a virtual pumpkin parade on Weld County social media sites. Special attention will be given to dino-themed gourds, or as we say "paleontological pieces preferred"!
Email your pictures to email@example.com and include your first name, age (if you want), and title of your masterpiece. Then look for it on Sat., October 31, 2020!

Horsetooth Outlet Project Update
WORKING TOGETHER TO PROTECT OUR WATER SYSTEM
North Weld County Water District is one of four water providers in northern Colorado impacted by the Horsetooth Outlet Project. Safety, water quality and access to water are top priorities while the project is underway.
During the project, water from Horsetooth Reservoir won’t be accessible, meaning that North Weld County Water District, the source of water for the Town, will rely solely on water from other sources. North Weld has been working collaboratively with East Larimer County Water District, Fort Collins-Loveland Water District, City of Greeley and Fort Collins Utilities to ensure the water needs of the community are met throughout the duration of the project.
SMALL ACTIONS CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE
Colorado’s dry weather and drought conditions this summer have impacted regional water reserves and we strongly urge our customers to eliminate their outdoor water use leading up to the start of the project and for the duration of construction (approximately 30-45 days).
RESTRICTED WATER USES
· Lawn watering
· Residential car washing
· Spraying or washing impervious surfaces (driveways, sidewalks, etc.)
· Filling outdoor swimming pools or water features
Activities not listed will not be restricted.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Your temporary end to outdoor water use on Oct. 1 will help conserve water resources and benefit the entire northern Colorado community.

· Oct. 1: Temporary outdoor water restrictions begin
