They spent a lot of time at Monday night's Board of Trustees (BOT) discussing how to best ensure that good people, and lots of them, run for elected offices (Trustee seats and Mayor) in upcoming elections, and how to ensure continuity and institutional knowledge from one election/Board to the next.
Most municipalities have “staggered” four-year terms, meaning every two years, half of the seats are up for election (one election three Trustees, two years later the three other Trustees plus the Mayor). Historically that is the way Lyons used to do it. But, about thirty-five years ago the Town
Editor's Note: I would like to sincerely thank Mark Browning who agreed to cover the Board of Trustees' meeting on December 19, when I was out of town on vacation.

After devouring some hefty agenda items on their plates in late 2016, the Lyons Board of Trustees slimmed down to a lighter course of business Monday night in its first meeting of the new year.
The meeting lasted barely more than an hour, with most of that devoted to staff updates and follow-ups on business from prior meetings.
Lyons Life By Ken Singer
Although Sgt. Nick Goldberger doesn’t live in Lyons, he has been the top cop in the Lyons Substation of the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office since February 2013. It sort of makes him the Chief of Police with the job of supervising a number of deputies in town. Just about everyone in town knows him and calls him “Nick,” and that’s the “small town feeling” and
