February Mayor’s Message
Happy February, Frederickians! I hope you can get out and love one another this month!
As your Mayor, here are some things I am excited to share with you in FebrUary:
Agilent Technologies has chosen the Town of Frederick for its multimillion-dollar expansion project! I would like to thank our staff for their incredible comradery in securing this opportunity for FRED. I am wildly impressed and proud of each one of you! Read the news release at FrederickCO.gov/NewsReleases.
Town of Frederick’s 2023 Scholarship Program is now accepting applications online at FrederickCO.gov/ScholarshipProgram. All applications and corresponding documents must be received no later than Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2023, to be considered. Looking forward to meeting our seniors! FrederickCO.gov/ScholarshipProgram
Frederick Water Plans-Frederick is dedicated to investing in existing and future transportation, water, stormwater, and technology while planning for sustainable growth and development. The Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP) is a proposed water supply project coordinated by the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District (NCWCD) that would create 40,000 acre-feet of new water supplies to 15 water providers. This water is developed by constructing off-stream reservoirs to capture peak river flows without contributing to agricultural dry-up. Frederick is currently a participant in NISP in the amount of 2,600 shares yielding 2,600 acre-feet of high-quality water. As such, the Town recently adopted Resolution 23-R-01, to approve the 19th Interim Agreement to continue participation in this project to provide a dedicated water resource for Frederick’s future.
Frederick Reusable Shopping Bags – As you know (if you’re like me, you forget this until you already have a cart full of groceries) as of Jan. 1, Colorado businesses are required to charge consumers a 10-cent fee for each plastic and paper bag they carry out of their store. As a Frederick resident, we’d like to help! Please stop into Town Hall (401 Locust St.) or Administrative Services (311 Fifth St.), Monday – Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm, to say (hi) and snag a free reusable bag, save yourself some money, and share your love for Frederick.
2023 Sponsorship Opportunities – Our highly anticipated Frederick events are just around the corner and wouldn’t be nearly as elaborate and enjoyable without our sponsors. Join the opportunity to celebrate community at FrederickCO.gov/Sponsor.
New Town web pages- As we continue to evolve as a Town, it is our goal to show consistency and thought in every action. We truly want you to be involved - We will continue to communicate our plans, process, and strategic goals with transparency! A few new services and departments in Frederick seeing some well-deserved sunlight and action are our Parks and Open Space: FrederickCO.gov/ParksandOpenSpace and our Victim Services: FrederickCO.gov/CVM.
Special Days in FRED:
Happy School Resource Officer Day (Feb.15) to all SRO’s especially to Luke, Andy and Brad! You make a difference in our community every single day. Thank you for being you!
Also, National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is celebrated each year on Jan. 9 to show support for local, state, and federal law enforcement. This past January, the men and women of the Frederick Police Department were called upon to serve and protect our community during a critical incident. FPD, and surrounding agencies, responded and showed tremendous bravery! We appreciate you, Law Enforcement!
Random Acts of Kindness Day is Feb. 17. Let your kindness be contagious!
Happiest of National Engineers Week, Feb 19-25, to the BEST of the BEST: AJ, Eli, Jason, Kevin, Kylie, Sarah, and Zack!
