Attached you will find the first predicted Colorado River predictions by NOAA for Columbus going from now until early Monday morning. The projected peak of the level is predicted to be below 28 feet, which is below the action stage and well below the historical water levels, which are attached as well. We will be monitoring the values and if there is significant changes, we will notify our followers here and if needed in person. As of now these levels should not have any effect on the City of Columbus or it’s residents.

What a great package to receive today. Thank you for love and well wishes.

See y’all there come rain or shine!

A big shout out to the St. Paul Lutheran Church Fundraisers for the ohhh sooo fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

Columbus Police would like to introduce our newest honorary officer Case Beken. Case has always wanted to be in public service to help others, but due to medical issues his progress in achieving his life goals have been blocked. Colorado County EMS took Case to meet with Houston Fire and brought him by to see us. He was presented with his honorary police officer certificate, authentic Columbus PD badge, a shirt and hat with the same logos and name as the officers wear on duty (big shout out to Crissy Spalek for making the hat and shirt) and the thin blue line flag that CPD flies during Police Week at City Hall.
