The 2012 Leadership Steamboat group has created an initiative called the Mainstreet Steamboat Recycle Project. The project will jumpstart year-round recycling on Lincoln Avenue with the addition of 22 recycle bins to be placed alongside the current garbage bins. The new recycle bins have been approved by Steamboat Springs City Council and will be maintained by the city of Steamboat Springs, Yampa Valley Recycles and Waste Management.
The Steamboat Leadership group now is seeking businesses, organizations, groups or individuals to donate funds toward the purchase of the new recycling containers. A donation of $1,500 will add one new recycle container to Lincoln Avenue. The recycle container will include a custom plaque including business name and donation message.
Container locations will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact EA Moulton at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a can before Saturday.
Collaborative Management Program offering grants
The Routt County Collaborative Management Program is seeking proposals for programs that serve at-risk children ages birth to 21, according to a news release. A key mission of the program is to improve efficiency and availability of services for youths and families who have involvement with multiple agencies. Performance-based measures are required to be met in the areas of child welfare, juvenile justice, education and health/mental health. The program will be awarding as much as $50,000 to organizations that most closely align with these goals. The deadline is 5 p.m. April 13.
Additional funds also are allocated to youths and families who have or need involvement with multiple agencies through the Individualized Service and Support Team. The Collaborative Management Program began in 2007 in Routt County after the state Legislature passed House Bill 1451 in 2004 to encourage collaboration among agencies serving families and children.
