October 3 Town of Lyons Meeting

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lipcyrZjWs&feature=youtu.be

The Lyons Board of Trustees has been working incredibly hard and has done a terrific job so far.

They are targeting getting most (75%) of homeowners home for the holidays.  I am most fortunate to live in the “Northern” area of Lyons.  I am high above town and am least damaged by the flooding.  Electricity has been restored to my home and the town is hoping to have full utilities returned to my neighborhood before Thanksgiving.  They are saying 4 to 6 weeks.  This was the best news I have had in a long time.

My next door neighbors moved in only 2 months ago.  They are very nice and have purchased a 5th wheel trailer and parked it in the driveway to live it!  Yay!  They will be there to watch over our properties and with electricity and internet restored can use their home for home business and home base.
