CITY TO OPEN 'THE HOWLER AT CHAMBER MIXER MAY 23

STEAMBOAT SPRINGSThe city is hoping to open the alpine slide affectionately known as 'The Howler" on Howelsen Hill at a chamber mixer on May 23.

The slide, which began operation last year, will be open to the public after that date on weekdays and weekends depending on the

weather.

The city and the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club are still working on a revenue-sharing agreement on the slide, said Parks and Recreation Director Chris Wilson. Once city staff finalizes the deal, it will have to go before City Council.

TOWN GRANTS PROTESTED LIQUOR LICENSE TO HAYDEN RESTAURANT

HAYDENThe Hayden Town Board recently granted a liquor license to a couple planning on opening a new restaurant there.

Hayden Mayor Chuck Grobe broke a 3-3 deadlock when he voted in favor of granting a liquor license to Bill and Ruth Gray. The couple plans on opening a restaurant on the property at 825 Lincoln Ave.

The Town Board's decision came after a public hearing that was held Thursday night at which numerous neighbors of the property voiced opposition to the liquor license.

Residents are concerned the Gray's intention is to have a bar and are worried about noise and intoxicated people.

"This is going to be a bar," said Alan Steele, who lives near the property. "If it was going to be a restaurant, I would have a different take on it. I am simply opposed to it because it is going to be a bar."

Before the license is granted, the Grays must show the Town Board a detailed site plan, sound proof the building's wall and construct a fence on the property.

Bill Gray believes the business will be a benefit to the town and neighborhood.

"It will be a family, friendly, full restaurant," Gray said. "It will be a place where a person can have a drink and a meal. We are not planning on pushing the drinking side of it."
