Superior Residential 2017 Property Tax Summary
(Where does the money go?)
At the beginning of May you should have received your new (higher?) property valuation from the Boulder County Assessor’s office. Your new property value will ultimately be used to determine property taxes due in 2018. To estimate your residential property taxes in 2018:

Actual Home Value x Residential Assessment Rate (7.20%) x Mill Rate

Property tax rates (or mill rates) will be set later in 2017 by the individual taxing authorities in Superior. Based on 2017, the Town’s property tax rate (which is used for general operations and library services) is less than 10% of your total property tax bill. Most of your property taxes go to the Boulder Valley School District, Boulder County and Rocky Mountain Fire as shown in this graph

Transit Updates
RTD Adds Services to the AB to DIA
Changes were made last month to the AB Bus service to Denver International Airport (DIA) starting on May 21, 2017. The Boulder Junction at Depot Square Station will be a new terminal for this route. This change will result in the creation of a new pattern for the route and thus within the route will result in AB1 (Downtown Boulder Station) and AB2 (Boulder Junction at Depot Square Station), within current route AB. From McCaslin, there will be two additional Eastbound buses in the morning (5:33 and 6:32) and two additional WB buses in the evening (leaving DIA at 5:52 and 6:52 PM). Plan your next trip on the AB service by visiting the AB webpage.

Road Work Updates
McCaslin/Main Street Roundabout
This project has been hampered by the wet May so the thru lanes on McCaslin Boulevard for the roundabout may not open to traffic until sometime in late June. Once the lanes are open the temporary bypass lanes will be removed and construction of the connection to Main Street will start. Traffic is anticipated to be able to start using Main Street by mid-August.

This is a visual display of Dust Bowl scenes, a timeline and a binder filled with specifics about the event in southeast Colorado and in Superior itself. 

We also have two continuing displays on the subjects of Josephine Roche, progressive female owner of the Rocky Mountain Fuel Company during the 1930’s, and Edith Oerman, legendary teacher at the Superior school. 

The Museum is located at 2nd and Maple Streets in Origi nal Superior and is open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on June 3rd.

Scam Alert Notifications To Be Aware Of:
Medicare cards: Have you heard you will be receiving new Medicare cards? This change is to help prevent fraud and protect your identity. This won’t happen until April 2018, but scammers are already jumping on the confusion as an opportunity for fraud. Some scammers call beneficiaries claiming to be Medicare and say they must confirm current Medicare numbers before sending a new card. Others call saying there is a charge for the new card and are collecting beneficiaries’ personal information.

There is no charge for your new card and Medicare will never call you for your information. If you receive any such calls or suspicious solicitations, hang up and report it to our Boulder County Medicare Counseling team at 303-441-1546.

Law enforcement calls: Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett is warning residents that there has been a surge in fake law enforcement calls to people – and especially seniors – in the community. Victims receive a call or message from a person claiming to be an official from "Boulder County Sheriff's Office."  When they return that call, they are connected to an "officer" and told that they have failed to appear for either jury duty or Grand Jury duty, and have received a citation and owe money.

One of the main identifying features of this scam is that the caller will keep their target on the phone at all times as they visit their bank to withdraw cash. They are then asked to purchase Green Dot Moneypak cards. Once the scammer is given the number on the back of the card, the money is gone in seconds. For further information, visit their website or call the Community Protection Division of the District Attorney's Office, at 303-441-3700.

June 1 -July 4 is Fireworks Awareness Month
60% of all injuries resulting from fireworks occur in the month before the 4th of July.  Before you take a trip to purchase fireworks be sure you know the law and how to handle fireworks safely.   fireworkssafety.org

If you are in unincorporated Boulder County if it flies or explodes it is illegal.   bouldercounty.org

The Town of Superior has a very detailed list of what is legal and what is not in their municipal code.

Also please take note; while May was wet, warmer dryer temperatures in June increase fire danger in the greenbelts and open spaces in and around Superior. To truly enjoy fireworks, plan ahead and attend a professional display.  There are many events on and around the 4th of July in the Denver metro area.  These displays are much more enjoyable and SAFER than the ones people light off in their neighborhoods.  

As we welcome summer, lets work together to keep it safe!  @RockyMtnFire

Keep Them Clear
The fire department will no longer be flowing every hydrant in the Town of Superior annually.  Firefighters will continue to operate the hydrant to ensure it operates correctly but will not flow water unless there is a specific need.
 
While the fire hydrant may not fit perfectly into your landscaping, it is important to keep hydrants separated from rose bushes, hedges and fences, which can all pose problems when firefighters need access to attach hoses. Also, in winter, try not to shove snow over and around hydrants - please don't hide them from us!

It's That Time of Year...
Please keep in mind that water meter lids, usually located in front yards near the sidewalk, must be kept easily accessible and unobstructed by snow, plants or other landscape material throughout the year.  This helps our Utilities staff in taking timely & accurate meter readings.  Inaccurate or incomplete readings may result in estimates of your monthly water usage.  It is also vital that Utilities staff have access to the meter for any maintenance or repairs that may be necessary.
 
When shoveling your sidewalk in Winter, please take a moment to remove snow from the meter lid.   And, be sure to clear all plantings & tall grasses within 1 ft. of the meter lid, and remove any overhanging shrubs or branches with 2 ft. of the meter lid.
 
Our meter readers appreciate your cooperation.  Please contact the Utility Billing office at 720-304-6797 with any questions about your water bill.
