NEWS UPDATE FOR OCTOBER 29, 2019
In order to maintain a safe environment for our drivers, Republic has recalled all of our residential drivers and we will be delaying service for one day for all routes. Those schedule for pick up today will be picked up tomorrow and those scheduled for Wednesday will be picked up on Thursday, etc. We have notified all of our Call Center agents and are in the process of updating all of the web information to make sure residents are aware of the delay. If we have phone numbers for customers we will also be issuing a robo call to inform them of the changes.
We also wanted to review the reporting of power outages. Xcel does not have electronic call home in our meters at this point. The only way the company will know of an outage is self reporting. New meters will be arriving in 2-5 years. In the meantime, please download the app and familiarize yourself with the reporting procedures with the links below. They work pretty well.
Here’s how to report an outage online: https://www.xcelenergy.com/storm_center/check_outage_status The phone number to report and outage is 1-800-895-1999 for electric, 1-800-895-2999 for the natural gas leak or customer service where they can also report it is: 1-800-895-4999.
Last year in Bow Mar, we had several homes all without power for many hours. Xcel did not know the severity of the situation. Let's be proactive this year with reporting.

Town Lyft Program
The Town has been working on a program with Lyft and it is coming to fruition!
Do you want to take the Light Rail but the parking at the Littleton Station is impossible? Do you want an easier way to get home from the station?
The Town is ready to help solve the problem. In an effort to offer more multi-modal transportation options and to help keep you out of the traffic of Santa Fe, the Town is offering the following program:
The Town of Bow Mar will pay for your Lyft ride from Bow Mar to the Light Rail Station and back. The Town will cover up to 25 rides per week (that are no more than $10) to the station and back to Bow Mar. The $10 max is enough to cover rides to or from the Littleton Light Rail Station. The Town is going to run a 5 week trial on this program. The first 25 people, each week, to take advantage of this offer will get their ride paid for by Bow Mar.
It's easy: when you order a Lyft ride, simply use the code 'BOWMARRTDWK1' (for Bow Mar TRD Week 1).
Each week a new code will be emailed out for use. The program starts today, Wednesday, April 24. Each Wednesday, a new code will be sent out to use.
Enjoy the ride!

Dog waste collection trash cans have been installed in Mary's Meadow, the corner of Sheridan and Bow Mar Drive, and at the Dog Beach. The collection stations are maintained by an outside service. Please use these stations for dog waste only.
