KEY PROJECTS

2019's best and brightest accomplishments and achievements

CIRCLE PARK POND DESIGN/ENGINEERING

Due diligence items including final design, water rights application, environmental assessments and mitigation, easement documents, and permitting were completed in anticipation of 2020 construction of the pond and associated amenities. Amenities include a fishing pier, walking path, new timber pavilion, trail connections, and more. The addition of these amenities will be a testament to the broad coalition of public and private partners that have come together to make this project a reality. ERBM was awarded Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Statewide Partner of the Year for its efforts to work collaboratively on this project. Softball Field Lighting Project April 2019

CPW Statewide Partner of the Year May 2019

PAINTBRUSH PARK SOFTBALL FIELD LIGHTING

The Paintbrush Park Softball Field received a state-of-the-art MUSCO LED Lighting System retrofit which has significantly improved the visibility and playability of this activity area. This efficient system will provide both energy and maintenance savings over the lifespan of the product and also received a significant rebate from our partners at WREA and Tri State Energy.

ERBM MARKETING AND INNOVATION TEAM (EMIT)

Along with the implementation of ERBM’s Marketing Plan document and transition of District marketing activities to a contracted service, the ERBM Marketing and Innovation Team was convened to assist in overseeing special projects and new ideas that help promote our agency brand throughout the community and beyond. This team will meet quarterly for updates on tasks and special projects, such as 2021 ERBM 40th Anniversary planning, marketing strategies, and improvement ideas.

AGENCY WIDE ADMINISTRATION AND PLANNING INITIATIVES

Several key efforts were made this year to improve internal working processes at the District, including: a May Board of Director’s Fiscal Sustainability Workshop to focus on long term financial viability strategies, an all staff District Round Up event was held in September to gather staff feedback and input to guide future operations, and, lastly, the adoption of significant Fiscal Policy changes in November, which included substantial sponsorship program guidelines and partnership policy revisions.

ERBM's mill levy rate is 5.699 mills, which has annually yielded between $3.15 - $4.2 million in tax revenue, over the last 5 years. In November of 2005, voters approved a construction bond to build the Meeker Recreation Center. The bond had a 20 year repayment schedule (to be paid off in 2025). In 2014, 11 years ahead of schedule, the bond was paid off. As a result of bond over collection, the 2015 mill levy was reduced as a one-time reimbursement.

HUMAN RESOURCES REPORT

taking care of our best asset–our employees

2019 CUSTOMER SERVICE INITIATIVE ERBM Recreation and Park our employees are our best brand ambassadors. They take outstanding care of our customers, they anticipate customer needs, they head off problems before they happen, they know if and when they may need to pay some extra attention to a customer, make improvements based on customer feedback, and they care enough to go the extra mile to create a quality experience for our customers. In order to recognize our employees for being the “Best Brand Ambassadors,” we developed a Customer Service Award Program. Employees and patrons had the opportunity to nominate an employee from the district for demonstrating ability and willingness to make a difference every day by being Positive, Passionate, and Professional, practicing positive communication, listening, and attitude skills, handling conflicts and complaints, problem solving, anticipating needs, and connecting with others. These employees recognize their emotions and how those emotions affect people around them and practice self-care by balancing work and life demands. Nominees were eligible for end of year recognition, including a $100.00 prize drawing for Chamber Bucks. Following is the list of employees nominated for a Customer Service Award: Jamie Bumguardner Brandon Blaisdell Caden Jeffrey Cade Crooks Donnee Theos Issac Clark

PARKS/FACILITIES MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT 2019 HIGHLIGHTS • Staff installed a new circulation pump on the hot tub, which involved new plumbing for supply and discharge lines, as well as demolishing the old pedestal and building a new one from the floor up Maintenance Fish Slide Installation so that the new pump is secure and level. July 2019 • Staff repaired a sizeable leak in the spa after significant work went into determining the location and severity of the leak, including professional leak detection services. • New pool filter media was installed in September. The new glass filter media has many positive properties, including a five year lifespan and an increased surface area for absorbing of dissolved organic material. • Staff recognized a seasonal problem with the Town Park irrigation system. During run off or high water the system would get plugged with debris and sediment from the river. To rectify this issue, staff researched, proposed, and installed a new sand separator off of the discharge side of the pump. This separator has a unique effect in that it creates an internal tornado in the water that drops the sand and debris out of the bottom of the separator. • Playground compliance work was completed by way of installation of several tons of EWF (Engineered Wood Fiber) fall protection surfacing in all district maintained playgrounds. EWF over time will shrink and needs to be added so that adequate fall protection depth is maintained. • PFM staff worked with the school district on improvements at the Admin playground. During an in-depth playground audit several compliance related factors were identified at this location. ERBM and the school district worked together to update surfacing, fall protection material, and drainage features. During excavation, it was determined that demolition of the existing playground equipment was necessary due to severe degradation of the wooden posts. In coordination with ERBM and a commitment to maintain future equipment by the school district, local Lion’s Club members have initiated a community wide fundraising effort to install new desired play features in the near future.
