Steamboat Springs The Steamboat Springs City Council will consider a revision to an ordinance Tuesday that provides 50 percent water and sewer rate discounts to senior citizens and people who are disabled based on income requirements.
Kim Weber, the city’s budget and tax manager, said the program serves about 40 residents and was introduced in the late 1970s. She said it costs about $6,500 annually for the city to provide the service.
City attorney Dan Foote said the revision would bring the ordinance up to date with the city’s current practices. He said it would update income eligibility criteria, adjust accounting of the program and permit the discount to all residents living in a single-metered senior living facility.
Also Tuesday, newly elected City Council members will be sworn in, and officers will be appointed. The meeting starts at 4:30 p.m. at Centennial Hall with a reception for outgoing council members.
