Briefs for August 21, 2003


Deadline for early

ski passes extended

There weren't many positive results of last week's major power outage in the Northeast, but the blackout allowed several more days for skiers and snowboarders planning to purchase season and values passes at American Skiing Co.'s seven ski resorts. After the outage interrupted ASC's Internet "storefronts" the company decided to extend the deadline from Monday until midnight Friday. Customers are welcome to buy passes in person and remotely, including at the Steamboat main ticket office in Gondola Square.

Wetlands work awarded

to additional consultant

Routt County commissioners approved a contract with Civil Design Consultants for engineering work on a permit to fill a wetlands area at the site of the new justice center. The consultants' services are not to exceed $4,000, and will supplement work already being done by Wright Water Engineering.

The permit must be filed to the Army Corps of Engineers by the first week of September, and if there are no major issues with the permit, it could be signed by January or February of 2004, Routt County Attorney John Merrill said.

Constructing the justice center building and its parking lot will require filling in some wetlands on the site, Merrill said. To mitigate those fillings, the county will probably have to provide more than 1.5 acres of offsite wetland replacements, Merrill said. To fill some of the wetlands, the county will use 14,000 cubic yards of dirt from another site in the Curve Development Subdivision, as specified by the county's contract with the subdivision.
