Animal Control Enforcement
With the unusually warm weather recently, we have seen an increase in people out enjoy the parks and trails with their pets.  I would like to take this time to remind everyone of the leash law ordinance in Superior.   The leash law ordinance requires that all dogs, unless on private property, must be on a leash.  The ordinance does not allow for voice control of your dog.   This includes the grassed areas in the parks.  Additionally, all pet owners must pick up after their animal, specifically feces.

Animal Control officers will be randomly patrolling the parks and trails for the sole purpose of enforcing the leash law as well as the ordinance requiring pet owners to pick up after their pets.  

It is our hope that these added patrols will increase the enjoyment of the parks and trails for all users.

Historical Commission Corner
New Exhibit at the Superior Historical Museum

This Museum exhibit will focus on one of Colorado’s most unique and admirable personalities, Miss Josephine Roche. A product of the Progressive Era in American history, Miss Roche was the first female police officer in Denver, a Denver social worker reaching out to victimized young women, the owner of a coal mine company, candidate for governor of Colorado, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Franklin Roosevelt and officer of the United Mine Workers union. During the late 1920’s and early 1930’s, Miss Roche owned and directed the company that operated Superior’s Industrial Coal Mine. She is still remembered today as a kind, compassionate owner who treated the miners fairly during a time when most were not. 

We decided that National Women’s History Month was the perfect opportunity to recognize this exceptional person who influenced Superior history.

The Superior Historical Museum is located at 2nd and Maple in Original Superior and it's open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 4th. Drop in and see all our displays as well as this special exhibit ( view flyer).

Warm, Dry Weather Has Increased the Fire Danger
The warm, dry weather along Colorado’s front range has increased fire danger at a time more people worry more about snow than fire.  It is especially important to avoid using chimineas, charcoal grills and outdoor fire pits on windy days.  The grasses and shrubs dry out quickly after the snow melts and will burn easily.  If you decide to water your grass, trees and shrubs for the winter be sure to disconnect your hose afterwards to prevent frozen and broken pipes, freezing temperatures are still in the weather forecast.  

Daylight savings time begins on Sunday March 12th this year.  Please remember to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.  If your smoke detectors are 10 years old or older they need to be replaced to prevent false alarms or failure to operate during a fire.  There are many options on the market including combination carbon monoxide and smoke detectors and detectors with a 10-year battery that does not need changing biannually with the clocks. CLICK HERE for safety information about detectors or www.rockymountainfire.org to request contact with the fire marshal.
