October Mayor’s Message – Town of Frederick

Happy October, Frederick!

Outside of being your Mayor, I also work in Cybersecurity. As it happens, October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. I hope you all find some value in remembering to update your passwords (make sure the same password isn't used for multiple devices or platforms), clear your financial information from your cookies, and stay alert for phishing emails with urgent requests for you to click a link or attachment. Be cyber aware and protect your Personal Identifiable Information. 

While cleaning your digital presence, make sure you are planning to benefit from The FREDerick Fall Clean Up Days. Our fall voucher will be redeemable for your one free trip from Saturday, October 1, through Monday, October 31. This program is only for Town of Frederick residents with an active utility account which includes payment of trash services. Bring your ID and proof of residency to Town Hall for your voucher. Happy cleaning! More information: FrederickCO.gov/CleanUpDays.

Plan to gather your little ghosts, goblins, and pumpkins for our Tiny Terror Town event at Crist Park on Saturday, October 22, from 4 to 8 pm. Discover the tiniest frights you'll find on the Front Range! This family-friendly event will be a safe place for kids and families to trick-or-treat. Plus, participate in our Big Beast Bazaar pet costume contest for great prizes, and take a tour of the world's tiniest haunted house in our Miners Museum. Happy Halloween!

We appreciate your donations and support of the Frederick Thanksgiving Dinner in a Box program in November. We are collecting food (see our list of items needed) and monetary donations to provide a holiday meal to families needing a little help. If you know of anyone who may benefit, please send us their information here: FrederickCO.gov/Thanksgiving.

October is Community Planning Month, and I am darned excited for you to hear some WHOPPER updates coming soon. New opportunities, a more robust business community, and most importantly to you…major focus on current and managed residential growth. It is not easy to plan and maintain a population of 17K and growing. Still, our planning team works tirelessly to put your quality of life first and foremost. I often think of this department when sharing our value of "D-dedication" with our community. They know what Built on What Matters means to you and fight ferociously for your happiness. 

I would like to thank everyone for participating in the Community Satisfaction Survey this year. We thrive on hearing from our residents, pairing action with intention in efforts to improve, and showing your voices are at work! Truly your voice turns into action within our strategic plan, and we aren't slowing down on community engagement to find more ways to connect on what you want to talk about. I encourage everyone to check out the survey results as we continue focusing on creating the best community in Colorado! 

Fall looks good on you, Frederick.
Mayor Tracie Crites
